Custom Dental Bridges to Restore Your Smile

Dental Bridges

What Are Dental Bridges and How Do They Work?

Dental bridges consist of one or more artificial teeth, known as pontics, anchored in place by dental crowns on either side. They work by:

  • Filling the gap left by missing teeth.
  • Being anchored to the adjacent natural teeth or dental implants.
  • Restoring the ability to chew and speak properly.
  • Maintaining the shape of your face and preventing other teeth from shifting.

What Are the Different Types of Dental Bridges?

The types of dental bridges include:

  • Traditional bridges: with crowns on the adjacent teeth.
  • Cantilever bridges: supported by a crown on only one side.
  • Maryland bridges: using a metal or porcelain framework bonded to the backs of adjacent teeth.
  • Implant-supported bridges: anchored by dental implants.

What Is the Process for Getting a Dental Bridge?

The process for getting a dental bridge typically involves:

  • Preparing the adjacent teeth for crowns, if necessary.
  • Taking impressions to create a custom-fit bridge.
  • Placing a temporary bridge while the permanent one is being made.
  • Once ready, fitting and adjusting the permanent bridge for comfort and proper bite alignment.
