Dental bridge is an artificial tooth which is fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth. This method is very common for replacing one or more missing teeth.
Bridges are permanently fixed in your mouth so you cannot take it out of your mouth. Placing crown or bridge is very reliable to solve severe dental problems to permanently restore the missing tooth/teeth, functional and aesthetic appearance.
We use porcelain crowns and bridges that closely blend into the surrounding natural teeth.
Duration: 1-2 weeks
Number of visits: 2-3 visits
Who should get a bridge?
If you are missing any teeth and want to maintain good oral hygiene practices, a bridge may be suitable. A bridge is the most common choice to fill the space in your mouth left by missing teeth. Your dentist can offer a 3, 4 or 5 unit bridge depending on how many teeth are missing. This open tooth space can cause the surrounding teeth to grow out of position and can cause teeth and gums to become more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease. Fixed bridges correct an altered bite, improve your chewing ability and speech. It also protects your appearance by preventing the collapse of your facial features that can cause premature wrinkles and age lines.
How do I care for a bridge?
With a bridge, it is very important to brush, floss and see your dentist regularly. You must control the buildup of food and plaque (the sticky film of bacteria formed from acids in foods) so your teeth and gums don't become infected. It is also recommended to use floss threaders which help remove bacteria from hard to reach spaces between the bridge and adjacent teeth and gums.
If you maintain good oral hygiene, you can expect your fixed bridge to last as many as 8-10 years, or even longer.
