A dental bridge typically consists of two crowns placed on abutment teeth or implants on either side of a gap in the mouth, in addition to a pontic that joins the two crowns and fills the gap. The bridge may be constructed of various materials such as gold, silver, porcelain and porcelain-fused metals.
- Bridges are typically two supporting crowns with solid crowns in the middle, allowing a space to be filled in from a missing tooth
