One of the fixed treatment options to replacing a missing tooth or teeth is a bridge. This can be either conventional, which involves preparing adjacent teeth, or adhesive, which is more conservative.
Here is how they work:
Bridges are usually made of a precious metal base, which gives them a solid structure and makes them hard-wearing. If you need a bridge in your smile line, porcelain is usually added to the base to make it look more like real teeth. A bridge makes chewing and eating easier because they are fixed and can’t come out. Some bridges can also be fixed to your jaw with dental implants, if you have several teeth next to each other that are missing.
