Which Dental Bridges are the Right Fit for You?

If missing teeth are making you hate and hide your smile, discover how dental bridges can make you love to smile again.

A Bridge to a Better Smile

Today, dental bridges are a popular and permanent option for replacing missing teeth. Both patients and family dentistry experts favor dental bridges for their aesthetic, functional, and comfortable benefits. While they are similar to dentures, dental bridges are different because they are permanent, which makes them much more secure and comfortable.

A dental bridge is placed through bonding onto either the natural teeth or dental implants beside the missing tooth. These serve as bases called abutments. The number of abutments you have will depend on the number of teeth you’re missing. Then, the replacement tooth gets attached to a dental crown placed on each abutment and your smile is good as new.

Three Kinds of Dental Bridges

Dental care experts offer three types of dental bridges today. To determine which is best for your needs, your family dentistry specialist will determine and discuss your dental needs and recommend one of these bridges:

  1. Traditional Bridge – This is the most common kind of dental bridge. It is made of either porcelain or a porcelain over metal.
  2. Maryland Bonded Bridge – This kind of dental bridge is mainly used in the front of the mouth because the bite tends to be weaker. Dental care experts refer to this as a resin-bonded bridge, and it is made of an artificial tooth that is fused to metal bands and then cemented to the abutment teeth with a special resin.
  3. Cantilever Bridge – This kind of dental bridge is typically used when abutment teeth are located on only one side of the missing tooth or in areas of the mouth that are under less stress.

An Affordable Answer for a Full Set of Teeth

It’s important to realize that the price of dental bridges will depend on the type you select and the location of your dental care specialist. Your family dentistry specialist will discuss all of your options to help you find the most affordable answer for a better smile.
