Dental Bridges

A dental tooth bridge is an economical and effective way to replace missing teeth. Acting literally as a bridge between gaps left by missing teeth, a tooth bridge offers a strong, aesthetically pleasing, and functional solution for many of our patients.

Types of Dental Bridges include:

  • Traditional bridges: The most common type of dental bridge, this option utilizes adjacent teeth on both sides of a space to anchor the replacement tooth.
  • Cantilever bridges: When adjacent teeth are only available on one side of a gap, a cantilever bridge will be used to hold your dental restorations in place.
  • Maryland bonded bridge: For the replacement of a tooth, this method uses a bonding process connected to several teeth for support. This type of bridge is made of a composite or porcelain material that is supported by a metal framework attached to adjacent teeth.
  • All porcelain bridge: These are highly cosmetic, all porcelain bridges that can be placed on front teeth or back teeth to restore your smile and provide chewing support as well.
  • Examination of existing restorations: Check current fillings, crowns,  and bridges to make sure there is no fracture or recurrent decay present.

Advantages of Dental Bridges include:

  • Significantly improved aesthetics
  • Restoration of chewing and speaking abilities
  • Restoration of bite force and tension
  • Prevention of adjacent tooth movement
