A bridge is a custom device anchored to neighboring teeth that replaces one or more missing teeth. When a lost tooth is replaced with bridgework, the teeth on either side of the missing one must be prepared as crowns which will serve as abutments to hold the replacement teeth in place.
An adhesive bridge is non destructive. A bridge is prepared and 'stuck' to the inside of the adjacent tooth.
Sometimes the most sensitive way to fill a gap is to utilise fillings that already exist in adjacent teeth.
These fillings are removed and matching 'wings' attached to the bridge which fit into the spaces.
Sometimes teeth are lost.
The adjacent teeth are prepared. A Bridge is made which exactly matchs the space and is fitted across the gap.
