If you have lost one or more consecutive teeth in an arch and want a fixed restoration, you may consider dental bridges. A dental bridge is a custom-fabricated appliance consisting of two or more prosthetic teeth that are fused together. It relies on the support of the neighboring healthy teeth or dental implants.
The prosthetic teeth that anchor to the adjacent teeth or implants are called abutments, and those that replace the missing teeth are called pontics. Once a bridge is in place, it functions as your natural teeth, making it easier to bite and chew food. It also enhances smile aesthetics and improves overall facial appearance by filling the missing gaps.
There are different types of dental bridges, each having their own benefits and drawbacks. Our dental experts will select the one that best suits your needs.
The process of getting a new dental bridge is simple and usually takes two to three visits to our dental practice. It involves the following steps:
