Want to fix up those tooth gaps, or replace some missing teeth? Dental bridges are a great tooth replacement solution. So if dental implants are not an option for you, a bridge may be used for remedying your missing teeth or those tooth gaps you may have.
Basically a dental bridge (or teeth bridge) is a false tooth (or teeth) fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by your missing tooth or teeth. The two crowns holding it in place are attached onto your teeth on each side of the false tooth. This is known as a fixed dental bridge. Fixed bridges cannot be taken out of your mouth as you might do with removable partial dentures.
In areas of your mouth that are under less stress, such as your front teeth, a cantilever dental bridge may be used. Cantilever dental bridges are used when there are teeth on only one side of the open space.
