A bridge replaces a missing tooth (or teeth) by fixing the replacement to the natural teeth at each side of the gap. Some bridges have crowns at each end. Others are fixed to the surface of the teeth next to the gap. Sometimes a bridge is only fixed to the tooth on one side of the gap. Bridges are made of metal and porcelain, or on occasions just porcelain.

What will my dentist do?

Your dentist or hygienist will show you the best way of keeping your new bridge clean.
