Dental Bridges

dental bridges

Bridges are a non-removable solution to many cosmetic and health problems that can occur in your mouth. Some of the reasons for needing a porcelain fixed bridge include the following:

There are a variety of different bridges. Consulting with the dentist is necessary for deciding which option fits your particular circumstance. The most commonly used bridge is the porcelain fixed bridge, because it resembles your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of two different crowns that are placed on two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth). The crowns are attached to the pontics (artificial teeth), that fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

Bridges, like most other dental restorations, may eventually require replacements or may need to be re-cemented due to regular ware. Although this is the case with many dental restorations, bridges are made durable and strong. They are expected to last many years and provide you with a complete and functioning mouth and smile.


Are you trying to decide if a dental bridge may be right for you? If you have one more missing teeth or severely damaged teeth that cannot be restored, a dental bridge is one option for replacing them.

Frequently Asked Dental Bridges Questions

Dental bridges are restorative structures used to replace missing teeth that may have been lost to trauma, dental decay, extraction, or age. During the procedure, your dentist will use crowns to “bridge” the space between the teeth you may be missing.

Yes, generally speaking. Complications from dental bridges are very rare, and you will find that a dental bridge will feel and work very much like your own teeth. As long as the teeth that will work to support your dental bridge are healthy, you can expect to get many years of service from your dental bridge.

Caring for your dental bridge is as easy as caring for your natural teeth: brush and floss, and have regular dental checkups and professional cleanings. Because dental bridges are permanently fixed in your mouth, you will not have to take your bridge out for cleaning the way you would with dentures.

Bridges are an excellent solution to replace missing teeth in order to restore your smile, improve the appearance and support for the shape of your face, can help with eating and speaking and can prevent other teeth from drifting out of position.
