Do you feel self-conscious about having a missing tooth and ever wondered what can be done? Do not let missing teeth affect your quality of life any longer. Learn more about how dental bridges can help.
What is a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges are designed to remedy this by “bridging” the gaps between your existing teeth. A bridge consists of one or more replacement tooth or teeth (pontics), being supported by crowns on natural teeth adjacent to the gap (abutments). They are typically fabricated from porcelain to blend in with the colour of the remaining natural teeth. Dental bridges offer a fixed solution to restore the form and function of your teeth.
When is a Dental Bridge Necessary?
Dental bridges are often an ideal solution when there are existing healthy teeth for support, and may be considered in situations where an implant may not be an appropriate option for various reasons.
Dental bridges may also be able to offer a fixed option to eliminate the need to wear a removable partial denture.
However, in cases where there are multiple missing teeth, or there are no healthy abutment teeth to support a bridge, other alternatives such as dental implants or dentures may be more suitable.
There is no need to suffer from the embarrassment and adverse consequences of missing teeth. Contact us today and learn more about how dental bridges can help you.
