Dental bridges are false teeth which are held in place by being anchored to neighbouring teeth. The ‘false tooth’ on the bridge will look as though it is coming from your gum and, thanks to advanced technology, is hard to distinguish from your real teeth.
Bridges can be any size and are recommended when there are one or more teeth missing that affect:
- your smile and appearance
- the way you bite your teeth together
- your speech
- the shape of your face
They can be recommended for a variety of cosmetic and also functional purposes.
