Bridges are ideal for people who only have one or two teeth missing and do not want a denture. Bridges can be made by crowning the teeth on either side of the gap and attaching a false tooth in the middle. They are fixed in the same way as crowns and like crowns there a number of options available from all-ceramic or all-porcelain to metal and porcelain fused to metal bridges.
Bridges can also be constructed to fill gaps without crowning the adjacent teeth. These bridges are less damaging as they are chemically bonded onto sound teeth. You suitability for such bridges can be discussed at your consultation with the dentist.
