A dental bridge is an option that is used to replace missing teeth in order to help restore your smile and the ability to eat and speak properly.
Replacing missing teeth is also important to prevent the remaining teeth drifting out of position and to allow the biting forces in your mouth to be distributed evenly.
Dental Bridges can be supported by natural teeth or implants. They are made up of two crowns which sit on the teeth either side of the missing gap, in order to anchor the false tooth, which sits in between and replaces the gap.
Bridges are therefore an option to consider if the teeth adjacent to a gap are heavily filled or are pre-existing candidates for crowns.
