If you have missing teeth causing gaps in your smile, we can address this when you purchase our Dental Crowns package. Many of our clients come to us for a smile makeover, but may require some form of dental restoration prior to having their Crowns fitted.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental Bridge is a false tooth, otherwise known as a ‘pontic’, that is held in place by the abutment teeth on either side of the gap. A dental Bridge may come in a variety of materials such as gold but are most commonly made from Porcelain. This ensures the Bridge is both strong & durable as well as matching to the surrounding Crowns.
Why do I need a Dental Bridge?
When you have missing teeth, it can affect you in many ways both physically, psychologically and functionally as well. A dental bridge can:
- Restore your smile
- Restore your ability to properly chew
- Address concerns of speech and pronunciation
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Redistribute your bite force when chewing
- Prevent your other teeth from moving out of correct alignment
Variations of Dental Bridges
There are four main types of dental bridges:
Although there are 4 types of dental bridges, the most commonly used is a Traditional bridge. A traditional bridge consists of a false tooth being held in place by dental crowns that have been cemented onto the abutment teeth on each side. This covers the gap and creates a flawless smile.
