Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift and alter the way the upper and lower teeth meet which can result in an incorrect bite. A bridge is made up of two or more dental crowns that fit to the teeth either side of the gap. This serves as anchors, along with a false tooth in between. This will support the false tooth or teeth.
When you may need a dental bridge?
Dental bridges are a safe option to replace missing teeth when you do not want a partial denture or dental implant. It is important to replace missing teeth to prevent your remaining teeth from drifting into the empty space, as well as to restore the appearance of your smile.

Dental bridges improve chewing function and cosmetics; they help fill out the face where teeth have been lost. It can be a highly successful treatment, providing that the abutment teeth holding the bridge are in good health and remain so after placing the bridge.
