Ceramic Bridge

Ceramic bridges are dental bridges used to replace the form and function of a lost tooth. These are prosthetic units with improved esthetics. Unlike implants that require surgical intervention, these are fixed on the teeth present adjacent to the missing teeth. They are cemented using dental cement. Also, they are cost-effective compared to an implant. These are mostly preferred to replace the anterior teeth where esthetics is of great concern. Disadvantages include wearing away or chipping the opposing natural tooth, prone to fracture or crack, etc.
