- What are dental bridges?
- Are dental bridges permanent?
Dental bridges are permanent dental restorations. Sometimes dental bridges are also referred to as fixed bridges because they are cemented in place. The traditional dental bridge consists of two dental crowns and a beautiful replacement tooth called a pontic. The pontic is anchored in place by the two dental crowns. After the teeth adjacent to the gap are prepared to act as abutments, your custom dental bridge is cemented permanently with a special dental cement that is hardened with an ultraviolet light.
