A bridge is a way of replacing a missing tooth or teeth.
They can be fixed to your natural teeth adjacent to the space, or can be fixed to your jaw with dental implants if you have several teeth next to each other that are missing.
The result is no space and an intact arch which can prevent drifting of the remaining teeth and provide better chewing and eating ability.
What is the appearance of a bridge?
Natural looking with colour matching the remaining teeth.
Long term care?
They are permanent fixtures but occasionally become loose and require cementing.
Caring for your bridge also requires a good daily hygiene regimen as instructed by the dentist/hygienist along with routine monitoring at the recommended examination intervals to ensure it stays plaque free and does not cause bad breath.
