A bridge is a way to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Bridges are false teeth anchored in place by neighbouring teeth. The bridge consists of two crowns on the anchoring teeth (the teeth on either side of the space) along with the false tooth in the centre. A bridge is completed similarly to a crown where the teeth are filed down, an impression is taken and sent to the lab for fabrication. A temporary bridge may or may not be necessary. During your next visit, the temporary bridge will be removed and the permanent cemented onto the teeth. The bridge can be made of metal, porcelain or porcelain bonded to metal, depending on location in the mouth.
