A dental bridge is a dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by attaching artificial teeth to the natural teeth on either side of the gap. The artificial teeth, called pontics, are held in place by crowns placed on the abutment teeth, which are the natural teeth adjacent to the gap. Dental bridges are typically made from metal, porcelain, or a combination of both and are designed to blend in with the surrounding teeth for a natural appearance.
One of the main advantages of dental bridges is that they can help restore the mouth’s function by filling in the gap left by missing teeth. This can make it easier to speak and chew and help prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of place. Dental bridges can also help improve the smile’s appearance by filling in gaps and creating a more cohesive look.
