What are bridges?

A dental bridge is multi-component accessory, usually consisting of an artificial tooth plus two crowns (one on either side). A bridge is used to replace missing teeth or a gap in the mouth. There are alternative forms of bridges using no crowns, one crown, and/or alternative frameworks. 


  • Doesn’t require surgery (unlike implants)

  • Relatively fast installation

  • Fixed (don’t require removal)


  • Putting crowns over healthy teeth (requires removal of some enamel)

  • Doesn’t address bone loss

  • Difficult to maintain (and keep clean)
