Dental bridges are used for the replacement of one or more lost teeth.
When a tooth is missing, the teeth on both sides can be rotated or moved into empty spaces, resulting in an unadjusted bite. In addition, the imbalance caused by missing teeth can cause gum problems among other dental problems.
The bridge can be supported either by natural teeth, by implants or a combination of both. A traditional bridge is created by creating crowns for the teeth adjacent to the space where the dental and pontic teeth are needed to replace the lost teeth, in this way the bridge will be formed by the crowns placed on the pillars and the pontics attached to the crowns , completely covering the empty area.
Dental bridges require the same construction process as individual dental crowns. In addition, the raw material is also the same, since porcelain bridges with zirconium or porcelain with noble metal can be created.
