This is made by putting crowns on the teeth at either side of the space and then joining these two crowns together by placing a false tooth in the space. This is all made in the laboratory and then cemented into place with special adhesives. The bridge cannot be removed for cleaning. Another option is an adhesive or “Maryland” bridge. This has wings that are bonded to the back of the supporting teeth with very little drilling involved. Bridges are only possible if you have enough strong teeth with good bone support. Your dentist will help you decide which is the best way of replacing missing teeth.
