A bridge is a custom-made artificial tooth that fills in the gap where a tooth or teeth are missing, and attaches to the two teeth on either side. The replacement tooth or teeth are either attached to crowns placed on either side of the missing teeth, attached to the back of the adjacent teeth with wing-like appendages, or supported by dental implants. A ceramic bridge does not have an uncomfortable plastic piece that covers the palate and no need to remove in the night like dentures. In one common type of bridge, the artificial replacement tooth, know as a pontic, is attached to two crowns, and also called abutments. The crowns are cemented on the teeth on either side of the missing tooth, which support the permanent bridge. Cosmetic dentistry in Tijuana Mexico is today's best alternative to natural teeth.
