    Dental Bridges

    Smile Restoration
    Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
    A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap -- these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth -- and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
    ridges can:
    • Restore your smile
    • Restore the ability to properly chew and speak
    • Maintain the shape of your face
    • Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
    • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position

    What Types of Dental Bridges Are Available?

    There are three main types of dental bridges: 
    • Traditional bridges involve creating a crown for the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth, with a pontic in between. Traditional bridges are the most common type of bridge and are made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.
    • Cantilever bridges are used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth.
    • Maryland bonded bridges (also called a resin-bonded bridge or a Maryland bridge) are made of plastic teeth and gums supported by a metal framework. Metal wings on each side of the bridge are bonded to your existing teeth.
