Dental bridges are a type of dental restoration that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge is made up of two or more dental crowns that are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth or teeth in between.
Some of the benefits of dental bridges include:
Improved dental health: When teeth are missing, the remaining teeth can shift out of position, leading to misalignment, bite problems, and even gum disease. Dental bridges can help prevent these problems by filling the gaps and keeping your remaining teeth in their proper positions.
Restored function: Missing teeth can make it difficult to eat and speak properly. Dental bridges can help restore your ability to chew and speak comfortably.
Enhanced appearance: Dental bridges can help improve the appearance of your smile by filling in gaps and giving you a natural-looking set of teeth.
At our practice, we offer a range of dental bridge options to meet your individual needs and preferences. Our dental team will work with you to determine the best type of dental bridge for your specific situation.
Some of the types of dental bridges we offer include:
Traditional bridges: Traditional bridges are the most common type of dental bridge. They are typically made of porcelain fused to metal or ceramic materials and are held in place by dental crowns on the teeth on either side of the gap.
Cantilever bridges: Cantilever bridges are similar to traditional bridges, but they are supported by a dental crown on only one side of the gap.
Maryland bridges: Maryland bridges are a type of dental bridge that is held in place by a metal or porcelain framework that is bonded to the back of the adjacent teeth.
