Dental bridges are artificial teeth used to "bridge" a gap where teeth are missing. A so called cantilever bridge is a bridge that fills in open space when there are no teeth next to a missing tooth. A Maryland bonded bridge is comprised of plastic teeth and artificial gums that are anchored by a metal framework.
