A bridge restores one or missing teeth using one or both teeth either side of the gap.

The bridge can be made up either:

  • a false tooth attached to one or two crowns which go over the teeth next to the gap
  • a false tooth attached to a metal wing which sticks to your natural tooth
  • The bridge may need either minimal or more extensive shaping of the teeth either side of the gap. A mould is taken from which a dental laboratory produce the bridge which is cemented in place.
