BRIDGES

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap - the abutment teeth, and a false tooth/teeth in between. Dental bridges are supported by the natural teeth or implants. 

Dental bridges can

  • restore your smile

  • restore your ability to properly chew and speak

  • maintain the shape of your face

  • distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth

 

There are two main types of bridges available

  • Traditional bridges that involve creating a crown for the tooth on either side of the missing tooth, with a false tooth in between. This type of bridge is made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramics

Maryland Bonded bridges that involve bonding a false tooth to a tooth next to the gap by a metal wing. These involve less preparation of teeth adjacent to the gap and are becoming the preferred fixed option for restoring a gap while conserving the natural tooth tissue

When appropriate bridges are fixed alternatives to dentures for replacing small gaps due to missing teeth
