Bridges are false teeth designed to bridge the gap created by one or more missing
teeth. A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap
and false tooth or teeth in between. Bridges are not removable by the patient. As
with other types of crowns (caps), a bridge can be made of metal, gold, alloys,
porcelain, or a combination of these materials.
A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap ? these
two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth ? and a false tooth/teeth in between.
These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain
or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth
