A dental bridge is a fixed prosthetic that replaces missing teeth by “bridging” the gap between teeth. It is permanently cemented onto the existing abutment teeth on either side of the gap.
At Blue Sage Dental, we use dental bridges made from metal alloys, ceramics, or a combination of materials. Ceramic bridges are often preferred because they mimic the natural appearance of teeth and are more comfortable than metal bridges. Bridges can replace one or several missing teeth in a row after tooth loss has occurred due to tooth decay, gum disease, trauma, etc.
