What are teeth bridges?
Just as a bridge connects two sides of a water body, the tooth bridge connects two teeth to replace the missing teeth in-between them. The supporting teeth are trimmed to make them smaller or mini versions of the tooth.The dentist makes an impression of these miniature teeth. This impression is sent to the dental lab. The lab technician fabricates the bridge by designing the structure of the teeth for the supporting and missing teeth. The dentist then fixes or cements the bridge in the mouth. Various materials like metal, ceramic or zirconia are used to prepare bridges.
