A dental bridge is a dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by spanning the gap between the remaining teeth. It consists of one or more artificial teeth, known as pontics, that are anchored in place by dental crowns on either side of the gap. The pontic is typically made from materials such as porcelain, gold, or a combination of materials, and is designed to match the color and shape of the natural teeth.
Dental bridges can be used to restore both the function and appearance of the mouth, helping to improve chewing and speaking abilities, while also enhancing the overall aesthetic of the smile. They can be a good option for people who are missing one or more teeth, but who are not good candidates for dental implants or other restorative procedures.
To get a dental bridge, your dentist will first need to prepare the teeth on either side of the gap by removing some of the enamel to make room for the crowns that will hold the bridge in place. Once the teeth are prepared, an impression will be made of the area, which will be used to create a custom bridge in a dental laboratory. In the meantime, a temporary bridge will be placed to protect the exposed teeth and gums.
