Missing teeth raise a number of common concerns. Not only do they affect your smile and self-confidence, they can also lead to issues with your bite, infection, and even your ability to chew. It’s important to have them replaced as soon as possible and a dental bridge is often the ideal solution.
What are dental bridges?
Dental bridges (or fixed bridges) are simply one way in which teeth can be replaced. Just as their name suggests, they literally bridge the gaps that are caused by a missing tooth or set of teeth.
The dental bridge itself usually consists of two crowns – one on each side of the gap – and a false tooth (or set of teeth), which fits snugly in-between. The crowns can be placed on both natural teeth and dental implants and they act as an anchor, attaching to the bridge and securing it firmly in place.
Before undergoing dental bridge treatment, your dentist will discuss the different types of false teeth that are available and which they think will be best for you. They are made from a wide range of materials, including gold, alloys, and porcelain, and the decision is often based on the position of the missing tooth, its intended aesthetic appearance, and the overall cost of the procedure.
