These are a way to fill a gap or small space between your teeth that is cemented in place, rather than being removable. This is useful to improve appearance as well as providing a better biting surface and thus reducing stress on adjacent teeth. Attaching to the teeth on either side, bridges can create a natural finish. They can also be used for larger gaps, however this depends on the strength of the teeth on both sides.

This gentleman below had an upper partial denture to replace the 2 front missing teeth but was finding it increasingly uncomfortable and also damaging to the gums around the remaining upper teeth. It was agreed that a fixed bridge across the front 6 teeth would provide a more secure, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing outcome. As can be seen, neat preparations of the adjacent teeth were made to allow the bridge to be retained, and the final result shows how the bridge restores the space.
Bridges can be used to fill smaller as well as larger spaces, depending on the support from the surrounding teeth. Different designs of bridge can be used to minimise tooth loss or create better support, this is dependent on a clinical assessment and discussion on the desired outcome.
