A dental bridge is different from a crown in that its purpose is not to cover a damaged tooth, but to bridge the gap of a missing tooth. It bridges together two crowns to replace missing teeth while also covering multiple teeth that have damage. Depending on your unique situation, dental crowns or dental implants are placed on each side of the missing tooth with a replacement porcelain bridge to imitate an existing tooth. The dental bridge is so secure that these porcelain teeth will not be able to shift or slide and can be fully used as natural teeth.
These bridges look and feel natural because they are made out of porcelain which reflects light the same as a real tooth. They are strong enough to act as real teeth, and unlike dentures, they can be cleaned without having to remove them. Bridges are a more affordable solution to missing teeth.
