Bridges & Partial Dentures
Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. Bridges are a fixed restoration that cannot be removed, unlike a partial denture. The restoration can be made from gold alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials and is attached to surrounding teeth for support.
