Dental Bridges

If you lose a tooth a dental bridge may provide the perfect solution for restoring function and smile aesthetics. Dental bridges are a simple, safe means of replacing missing teeth. Alternatives to a bridge include a dental implant (which is the gold standard treatment in most cases) or a partial denture.

About dental bridges

A dental bridge is a type of restoration for replacing missing teeth. It is made from a false tooth that is fused to crowns on either side of the gap. Bridges can be made from various materials, including precious metals and ceramics. Many people prefer to have ceramic bridges as they blend in with the colour of natural teeth with a better cosmetic end result.

Types of dental bridge

There are different dental bridges and the one you choose will usually be based on the location of the missing tooth and the health of remaining teeth. The most commonly used type of bridge is a traditional fixed bridge that can be used if there are healthy, strong teeth on both sides of the tooth gap.

If you lose a front tooth a Maryland or resin-bonded bridge may be the best option, while a cantilever bridge will probably be recommended if you have healthy teeth on a single side of the gap. We will discuss all the options with you and help you choose the right option for your individual needs.

Why is it important to replace missing teeth?

Missing teeth have negative effects on the aesthetics of your smile, but they also cause difficulties for the remaining teeth and make eating and speaking more difficult. Gaps in the mouth can cause neighbouring teeth to move and drift out of position, making it difficult to perform oral cleaning and increasing the risk of oral diseases.

How long do dental bridges last?

At Pearl Dental Care Centre, we use the finest materials for our dental bridges to increase durability and enhance aesthetics. If you look after your bridge well it should last for many years, and we continue check your restoration during your routine dental check-ups.
