One way to fill the gap in your smile caused by missing teeth is with the help of dental bridges. Also known as fixed removable dentures, a bridge is made to replace one or more missing teeth and can be supported by natural teeth, implants or by a combination of teeth and implants.
Compared to removable devices like dentures, the dental bridge is cemented on your natural teeth or implants on any side of a missing tooth. The anchor teeth are called abutments while the replacement or artificial teeth are called pontics. The artificial teeth are held in place by two crowns or abutments. If you want affordable, time-tested and a less invasive treatment for your missing teeth, dental bridges might be the right treatment for you.
