Why choose dental bridge treatment?

There are many advantages to choosing dental bridges as a replacement for missing teeth. Here are just a few:

  • Bridge treatments don’t necessarily require oral surgery.
  • Bridges cost less than other types of tooth replacement treatments.
  • Treatment can often be completed in two to three dental visits, enabling you to quickly enjoy the results.
  • Bridges can be customized to suit your unique dental needs.

Dental bridges are designed to look and function like your natural teeth, so you can eat, talk and smile with ease.

Types of dental bridges

Once it has been determined that you are a candidate for dental bridges, your next step is selecting the type of bridge best suited to your lifestyle and dental needs. Basically, there are three types of bridges:

  • Traditional fixed bridges
  • Implant-supported bridges
  • Removable bridges

The most common type is the traditional fixed bridge. Traditional fixed bridges entail placing crowns on natural teeth located on both sides of the gap. Artificial teeth are then attached to the crowns to replace the missing teeth. Traditional bridges may be ceramic, metal, or a combination of porcelain and metal.
