A bridge is an artificial tooth supported by the teeth on either side of the space.
Your dentist prepares your teeth on either side of the gap, and takes a mould which is sent to a dental technician. The dental technician makes the complete structure, using porcelain (for appearance) and a metal core (for strength). Your dentist then places the bridge into your mouth.
Bonded bridges that do not require shaping of the neighbouring teeth are sometimes used.
Stronger materials are sometimes necessary for bridges used in back teeth. Your dentist may use an all-metal, gold bridge for this.
A bridge is a long term, very attractive way of helping you fill the gap.
