A Bridge is a fixed restoration option.  The fantastic result in this before and after photo was achieved by Dr Baber Khan, using a Resin Bonded Bridge.

It is a simple way to replace a missing tooth, without having to prepare the adjacent teeth and it is fixed in place.

There are other bridge options to consider, depending on the health and presence of teeth either side of the space you wish to restore.
