An Abridged Guide to Dental Bridges

Do missing teeth make you feel like you’re missing out on life? Discover how dental bridges can give you a great-looking full set of teeth.

Bridge the Gap from Missing Teeth

If you’re missing teeth due to damage or decay, dental bridges are a simple and affordable way to replace the teeth you’ve lost. Dental bridges are popular with both patients and family dentistry specialists because they can improve the appearance, function, and health of your smile. While they serve a similar purpose as dentures, dental bridges are different because they are permanent, which makes them much more secure and comfortable.

A dental bridge is placed through bonding onto either the natural teeth or dental implants beside the missing tooth. These serve as bases called abutments. The number of abutments you have will depend on the number of teeth you’re missing. Then, the replacement tooth gets attached to a dental crown placed on each abutment and your smile is good as new.

Three Types of Dental Bridges

According to dental care experts, there are three types of dental bridges. Your family dentistry specialist will determine and discuss your dental needs and recommend one of these bridges:

  1. Traditional Bridge – The most common type of dental bridge made of either porcelain or a porcelain covering over metal.
  2. Cantilever Bridge – This kind of dental bridge is typically used when abutment teeth are located on only one side of the missing tooth or in areas of the mouth that are under less stress.
  3. Maryland Bonded Bridge – Dental care experts refer to this as a resin-bonded bridge, and it is only used in the front of the mouth, which has a weaker bite. It is made of an artificial tooth that is fused to metal bands and then cemented to the abutment teeth with a special resin.

The Cost of Care

The cost of dental bridges varies by the type you choose and the location of your dental care practice. Your family dentistry specialist will discuss all of your options to help you find the most affordable answer for a better smile.
