Bridge: Overview and Treatment | National Dental Centre Singapore

Bridges - What it is

A bridge is a fixed prosthesis that replaces missing teeth by using neighbouring teeth as support.

Healthy neighbouring teeth are trimmed and the bridge unit is fixed on them. A small number of missing teeth can also be replaced if the neighbouring teeth are sufficiently strong.

A bridge can be made of ceramic or a combination of metal alloys and ceramics to maximise strength and simulate a natural appearance. Newer materials such as zirconia may also be used for bridges. Your prosthodontist will evaluate and recommend a suitable solution for you.
