Dental Bridges are false teeth that are used to replace missing teeth, unlike dentures however these are fixed permanently onto your teeth by metal hooks that attach onto teeth on either side of the gap creating a bridge across the gap.
It can take up to 6 months for your gums to heal properly after an extraction. This means that you may need to have a temporary solution before the bridge is fitted.
Bridges are usually made of porcelain bonded to precious metal. However, other non-precious metals can be used in the base for strength. There are also new bridges made entirely of a special type of strong porcelain.

Dental bridges can last many years if properly maintained through professional check-ups and cleanings. Most dental bridges can last even longer than 10 years, with the potential to last a lifetime.
This treatment usually takes 2 appointments:
During the first appointment dentist will prepare the teeth and fit on the temporary crowns
During the second appointment dentist will fit the permanent bridge and do the necessary adjustments.
