Dental Bridges Are Your Bridge to a Better Smile

Are you unhappy and uncomfortable because you’re missing one or more teeth? See how dental bridges can make you smile with comfort and confidence again.

The Deal on Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are sets of artificial teeth that are used to replace one or more teeth you have lost over time. Dental bridges are supported in the mouth by your natural teeth, dental implants, or a combination of the two. Dental bridges can be easily placed with only two trips to your dental care practice. By simply caring for dental bridges with good oral hygiene habits, dental bridges can give you many years of comfort and confidence.

Three Ways Dental Bridges Are Built

The three types of dental bridges include:

  • Traditional Dental Bridges – These are made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramics. To place traditional dental bridges, family dentistry specialists first create crowns for the teeth on either side of the missing tooth. Then, they attach artificial teeth to the crowns to fill in the spaces where teeth were lost.
  • Cantilever Dental Bridges – These kinds of dental bridges are secured in the mouth by placing one or more crowns on only one side of the area missing a tooth.
  • Maryland Bonded Dental Bridges – This type of dental bridge is made of a metal frame with wing-like attachments on the sides. These wings get bonded behind the existing teeth and attach to artificial teeth fused onto metal frame. Dental care experts also call these resin-bonded bridges and acid-etched bridges. In general, Maryland bonded bridges are the most affordable dentistry option for replacing missing teeth, yet they may not be as secure as the other kinds of bridges.

A Smile Solution You Can’t Afford to Ignore

Dental bridges are considered one of the more affordable dentistry answers for replacing missing teeth. But it’s important to realize that your cost of care will be based on your dental needs and geographic location of your family dental care practice. Talk to your dentist to find the most suitable and affordable dental bridge for you.
