Dental Bridges are a fixed restoration to replace a missing tooth or row of teeth. They differ from the porcelain crown in that crowns in the following ways:
- Fixed partial dentures are used to restore a tooth to its original form and function
- Dental bridges utilize existing teeth to fill in a gap left by a missing tooth or teeth
A dental bridge anchors an implant into place with attachment to the adjacent teeth in order to preserve the natural look of teeth and establish symmetry.
A variety of materials are used in bridge attachment, such as:
- Porcelain fused to metal.
