A bridge will use artificial teeth that look great to actually bridge the gap where one or more teeth originally were. Bridges can provide removable teeth or fixed teeth. In fixed bridges, the teeth are permanently secured to adjacent teeth. It will remain in your mouth permanently, and is never meant to be removed.
Removable teeth can either be partial bridges or full dentures. In either case they need to be removed from the mouth for cleaning several times a day.
