A Bridge is the term used when a dental professional closes the gap created by at least one missing tooth.

What is a Bridge?

Often made from porcelain, although also available in gold and alloys, a false tooth—called a Pontic—is made and placed to bridge the gap. The false tooth is supported by either a single crown to the adjacent tooth or two crowns—for the teeth on each side of the gap. The supporting crowns are known as abutment teeth.

What types are available?

There are four main bridging types that are commonly used: traditional bridges, Cantilever, Maryland, and Implant-supported. Your dental professional will discuss the most suitable options with you and explain how they work.

What are the benefits?

As well as restoring your smile and maintaining your natural face shape, bridging can reinstate the ability to chew and speak properly.  Bridging evenly balances the forces in your bite and helps to prevent other teeth from moving.
