What is a Bonded Bridge, and how does it work?
When you see Dr. Trinh, he may feel that your best option is to replace a single lost tooth with a bonded bridge. A bonded bridge consists of two parts. The first is a false tooth, called a pontic, and the second is 'wings' that support the pontic. The entire structure spans the space vacated by the missing tooth giving you a natural-looking replacement without damaging surrounding teeth. Neighboring tooth structures are allowed to remain the same, and the wings of the bonded tooth fasten behind the adjoining teeth.
