What are dental bridges?
Bridges are made using dental crowns and false teeth called pontics fused together to create a single unit. The bridge has a dental crown on each end that is bonded over the adjacent teeth, allowing the false teeth to slide into place where the natural teeth are missing. Patients can eat and speak as they once did, while also enjoying a beautiful smile.
