Fabricating a dental bridge is an option to replace one or more missing teeth. The false tooth, which is known as a pontic, is permanently attached between two crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth. The crowns holding it in place are attached to the teeth on either side of the false tooth and are permanently cemented into place. The fixed bridge cannot be removed and will restore this area of your mouth to look very similar to the appearance before the tooth or teeth were extracted. There are a number of variations of a fixed bridge and the most appropriate one will be selected to best solve your particular situation.
