A dental bridge fills the gap between missing teeth. The adjacent teeth support the bridge/artificial teeth (pontics) located in-between the natural teeth. Dental bridges require at least two office visits. At the first one, the dentist prepares the adjacent supporting teeth by removing a portion of the enamel to make room for the crown. Impressions of the teeth are taken to create a crown and pontic. The bridge is made of all-metal, porcelain fused to metal or all-ceramic depending on if the bridge is placed in the front or back. A temporary bridge is placed until the next appointment when the dentist places the permanent bridge.
