A dental bridge is a way of replacing a tooth that is missing. It is a false tooth supported by nearby teeth that have usually been crowned. Replacing teeth that are missing helps to keep the others stable and protect the way your teeth move over each other. A well-made bridge is a piece of art that is normally made by hand on a model of your teeth by a dental technician, often aided with a sophisticated computer. It is fully customised to your mouth and matched to blend in with your existing teeth. Made well no one would ever know the difference! Compared to having a missing tooth a dental bridge can provide you with greater confidence as it removes the black space where your tooth should be and you are able to eat better and smile better because it doesnÕt move when eating or speaking and there is no need to remove it at night.
