This is a fake tooth or series of teeth with metal flanges at each end; the flanges are cemented to the backs of the adjacent real teeth. This is quite different from the typical bridge in which an adjacent tooth is actually ground down, and the stub used as an anchor.

Having a dental bridge put in your mouth is an excellent way to cover areas where you had no teeth. They are made to look just like your real teeth, and they are anchored securely in your mouth either via the permanent teeth that were located between the gap or via implants that are anchored into your gums. In either case, they are there to stay, and they give you a full and beautiful smile.
