What is a bridge? My dentist offered it to me to close a visible gap between my teeth.

A dental bridge is like two crowns with a false tooth between them. The whole crown is cemented to the teeth on either side of the area with the gap. This means both teeth on either side are prepared for a crown. A Maryland bridge is different and is just cemented to the back of the tooth instead of putting crowns on the teeth on either side.
