How A Dental Bridge Can Help You Gain An Impressive Smile

Dental bridges are an economical way to replace missing teeth. We can use them to fill the space created by a single tooth, multiple teeth, or adjacent missing teeth. A dental bridge comprises two crowns on either side of the gap and a false tooth in between them. The pontics are supported by natural teeth on both sides of the gap and rest against the gums as normal teeth do. In this article, we’ll look at what they are and how they can help you attain the smile of your dreams.

What Is A Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a fixed prosthetic used to replace missing teeth. It consists of two crowns (caps) shaped like the teeth on either side of the gap in your smile and an artificial tooth that fills in under or between them. Bridges can also be referred to as fixed partial dentures when natural teeth support them on either side.

There are two types of bridges: resin-bonded and cantilever. Both work in the same way, but they differ in their fabrication process. A resin-bonded bridge is fabricated using tooth-colored materials that bond to your teeth at the abutment (the teeth on either side). Meanwhile, a cantilevered bridge can be fabricated using gold or other metal alloys.

Who Needs A Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a prosthetic device used to replace missing teeth. This could be caused by tooth decay, gum disease, or other medical problems that lead to losing one or more of your natural teeth. Bridges can also help prevent the shifting of neighboring teeth, mitigate jaw pain, and improve chewing ability. A dental bridge may also be needed for people who cannot wear dentures due to discomfort with adhesives because bridges are permanently attached in place.

A dental bridge is a solution for missing or lost teeth. It’s an option that can help you maintain your smile and chewing function while also restoring the appearance of your mouth.
