A dental bridge is a fixed device that is used to replace multiple missing teeth in a row. Bridges are generally made from porcelain fused to metal and consist of two crowns at both ends that are placed over the abutment teeth (to which the bridge is attached) with artificial teeth in between to fill the gap caused by lost teeth.
Bridges are long-lasting oral appliances and can last for many years. They not only fill the space caused by missing teeth, preventing the nearby teeth from shifting into the gap, but they also help in restoring your ability to talk and chew with ease and aid in maintaining the shape of your face, making you look younger. Since bridges are fixed, there are no worries about misfits or slips, as in the case of removable dentures.
