Dental bridges replace lost or missing teeth with one or more artificial teeth (pontics). Two adjacent teeth are prepared for crowns that support a pontic replacing the missing tooth. A bridge can also be made using two dental implants to support one or more fake replacement teeth (pontics). These appliances are cemented in and are not removable by the patient.
