Bridges are natural-looking dental appliances that can replace a section of missing
teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore
the natural contour of your teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between
upper and lower teeth.
Bridges are sometimes referred to as fixed partial dentures, because they are semi-permanent
and are bonded to existing teeth or implants. Some bridges are removable and can
be cleaned by the wearer; others need to be removed by your dentist.
Porcelain, gold alloys or combinations of materials are usually used to make bridge
"implant bridges" are attached by the dentist to an area below the
gum tissue, or the bone.
