What's a Bridge?
A bridge is a fixed (non-removable) prosthesis and is one of several options for replacing missing teeth. There are several types of bridges. A bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached to pontics (artificial teeth), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Bridges are highly durable and will last many years; however, they may need replacement or need to be re-cemented due to normal wear.

What does getting a fixed bridge involve?
Getting a bridge is very similar to getting a crown. The procedure usually requires two or three visits.
