What is a dental bridge?
Dental bridges are constructed to replace missing teeth, using the surrounding natural teeth for support.
Just as we do with dental crowns, we match bridges to the colour of your natural smile.
What are the effects of missing teeth?
Missing teeth can cause a loss of confidence, as well as problems with eating and speaking. Here at Bridge Dental clinic, we want to restore the functionality of your teeth and bring the confidence back to your smile. That’s why we offer the highest quality dental bridges as part of a treatment plan that’s tailored to you.
What will my treatment inlude?
This depends on the number of teeth missing and on where they are in the mouth. The condition of the other teeth also affects the decision.
Types of Dental Bridge available are:
These are the most popular type of dental bridge. Traditional bridges are made up of two crowns on either side of a pontic. The crowns fit comfortably on top of your natural teeth to keep the bridge firmly in place.
Maryland bridges also use two natural teeth to secure the bridge in place and are a great solution for a gap between two teeth. But rather than using crowns, this method uses a porcelain or metal framework that we gently bond to the back of your teeth. These are often used in temporary solutions.
This type of bridge is similar to a Crown, but has a ponic attached. If you choose this type of bridge, we will bond the crown to one abutment tooth to keep it securely in place.
As you might guess from the name, these bridges are anchored in using a dental implant. We usually place one implant per missing tooth. The implant acts as a root for the replacement tooth so that it feels just like the real thing.
