• Protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
  • To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
  • To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of tooth left
  • To hold a dental bridge in place


  • Bridges are designed to replace one or more missing teeth, and are fixed/non-removable.
  • They are attached to the teeth using abutments (supports for the bridge) on both sides of the space and are usually made of noble alloys, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal.
