A bridge is an ideal method to fill the space created by missing teeth. A bridge is one or more artificial teeth that are cemented into place using the natural teeth on either side for support–hence the name. This is an option for filling a space or gap created by a missing tooth. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. Bridge work is as much an art as it is an exact science. Porcelain is typically the material used for bridge work because it is both beautiful and durable. Replacing a missing tooth is a great long-term decision that will keep a mouth healthy and functional for years.
