A bridge is a good solution for a missing tooth as it bridges the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge can also be used for multiple missing teeth. The dental crowns that replace the missing teeth are joined together to fit over teeth on either side of the gap. There are different types of bridges depending on how they are fabricated and how they anchor to other teeth.
