Bridges offer a more permanent solution to tooth loss as, unlike dentures, they are fixed firmly in place. Bridges usually consist of a false tooth located between two crowns which slot over the teeth either side of a gap. They can either be all-ceramic or made from porcelain fused to metal.
Bridges can strengthen the teeth either side of a gap and make chewing easier. If you have a number of teeth missing, bridges can be attached to dental implants.
To ensure the longevity of your bridge, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene and clean the area underneath the false tooth. Also, try not to bite down too heavily on hard foods to prevent damage.
