What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is appropriately named as it literally bridges the gap between one or more missing teeth. It’s composed of one or multiple natural-looking porcelain teeth, also called pontics, that use your adjacent teeth on either side for support.
If you visit our practice for a dental bridge, you can rest assured that it will look attractive and fit comfortably. Explore our informative guide to learn how you can benefit from this treatment.
Is a Dental Bridge Right for You?
If you’re only missing a single tooth, we’ll have to remove some enamel from your surrounding teeth on each side and cap them with porcelain crowns. This provides strong, durable support for your dental bridge.
If your surrounding teeth are damaged or already protected with crowns, then a dental bridge is a great option. Otherwise, Dr. Ang recommends a dental implant to avoid filing down your natural teeth.
Implant Supported Bridges
If you’re missing multiple adjacent teeth, we can place a dental bridge and secure it with implants for a stable and effective restoration. Known as an implant-supported bridge, this treatment doesn’t involve altering your natural teeth or relying on them for support.
Instead, your bridge is supported by durable and natural-looking dental implants on either side. This will benefit your long-term oral health, as implants stimulate healthy jawbone growth. Not to mention, an implant-supported bridge is more affordable than placing single implants for each tooth.
