In the event that you are missing some teeth, a dental bridge becomes handy. Two crowns support the bridge. They can be used as a compensation for the teeth that are missing. The artificial teeth cover the empty spaces left by the broken teeth.  Since the bridge rests on the gap with the support of the remaining teeth, it perfectly covers the gap. Implants or existing teeth can be used to hold the bridge into place. Modern day technology enables a dentist to make hybrid pillars from the residual teeth and the implants. The bridge will safeguard the outside fascia besides preventing the teeth from separating from the gums.  Bridges exist in different varieties. Some are made from zircon while others are made with metal ceramic. In terms of color and other properties, zircon bridges are the best. Protecting your teeth with bridges prolongs their life.
