Fixed Bridges

Dental bridges literally 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 – these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth – or 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 or implants.

Procedure for fitting a bridge

  • Teeth used to attach the bridge are carefully prepared.
  • Impressions are made and a temporary/ provisional acrylic bridge is then cemented into place.
  • The final bridges are fabricated in the lab, adjustments done and cemented into place.
