Getting dental partials or bridge is necessary if there’s a missing tooth next to two adjacent teeth. This may require dental restoration and implants. There are different kinds of bridges, but all of them will be made using an indirect method of restoration or through the use of a mold, made from composite resin. To fill in a missing tooth, the two other teeth will be reduced in order to create dental crowns that will imitate its original size (before it was reduced). The pattern will be determined by the location of the teeth, and the material from which the bridge will be made to correct and fill in the gap.
