You are in need of a bridge when you have one or more missing teeth. Depending on the situation, many times bridges can be used as a less expensive alternative to dental implants.
A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. Most bridges consist of a false tooth placed between two crowns. The entire structure is cemented to teeth on each side of the gap, making it a permanent fixture. There are three types of bridges: traditional, resin-bonded, and cantilever.
