Bridges are a type of dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. The dental bridge is composed of two dental crowns and one or more artificial teeth. The dental crowns are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap in order to anchor the replacement teeth; you may also choose to anchor the dental bridge on a dental implant for a secure restoration. Bridges can effectively replace either one tooth or multiple missing teeth in a row. Many dentists regard dental bridges as a more secure alternative to partial dentures; partial dentures are removable, while dental bridges are fixed (non-removable) dental restorations. When in place, your dental bridge can:
- Prevent the remaining teeth from shifting in the mouth
- Enhance the appearance of your smile
- Alleviate stress on the bite
- Restore lost facial volume
- Improve your ability to properly chew, eat, and speak
