A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. With this type of restoration, one or more neighboring teeth may be crowned and used to anchor the replacement.

Tooth replacement helps avoid shifting of surrounding teeth into gaps. If left untreated, structural changes to your mouth and jaw may occur. This can cause you difficulty with eating, speech, and other functions.

A dental bridge is custom-made to match your natural teeth in color, size, and shape. We use strong and durable materials for your restoration. With appropriate at home and professional care, your dental bridge may last for years.

What are the different types of Dental Bridges?

When do you need dental bridges?

  • Traditional – They are mainly used to fill the dental gaps created by missing teeth. They can only be used when you have natural teeth on both sides of the gap.

  • Cantilever – the working is quite similar to that of traditional briges, however they can be used when you have a single tooth beside the gap.

  • Maryland – They are made up of metal or porcelein framework and work when you have two natural teeth on either side of the gap.

  • Implant-Supported – Here one implant is strategically placed for each missing tooth.

One can use dental bridges in several cases. If you have a missing tooth or teeth, then they prove to be helpful. A dental bridge would restore your smile and also the ability to chew correctly. It would even restore your pronunciation, the way you speak, and your overall speech. Dental bridges help in maintaining the shape of your face. It would also prevent the rest of your teeth from moving out of the correct position.
