A dental bridge is designed to fill a gap in your bite as a result of a missing tooth. It is less invasive alternative to dental implants because instead of being implanted into the jaw bone, a dental bridge will use surrounding teeth for support.
An example of how a dental bridge might work is by creating two crowns on either side of the missing tooth. These crowns will be the endpoints to bridge the gap of the missing tooth by being attached to the teeth. The missing tooth is replaced by a false tooth in between the crowns, literally “bridging” the gap of the missing tooth. Best of all, this procedure does not require any type of surgery.
