Dental bridges are a way to replace missing teeth. Your existing teeth are used to literally create a bridge to cross the area where your tooth is missing. Bridges are made from gold, metal, alloys, or porcelain to ensure that they are strong and durable.
A dental bridge is used to replace a tooth that is missing with a false tooth that matches the color, shape, and size of your existing teeth. A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the missing tooth. The false tooth is attached to the two crowns, and the whole unit (crown, false tooth, crown) is cemented onto your teeth. A bridge is not removable. Once it is cemented, it does not come out.
