A bridge is a procedure for permanently replacing a missing tooth or teeth.

To secure your new tooth, the teeth on either side of the space are prepared as if for crowns. The new tooth – as part of the bridge comprising two supporting crowns – is then bonded to the adjacent prepared teeth. This procedure is completed over two visits, generally three weeks apart.

A bridge is a permanent, convenient and functional alternative to a partial denture. The procedure may also provide an alternative to a dental implant if for some reason implant treatment is not possible.
