dental bridge is made up of two dental crowns for the
teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth in
between. Natural teeth, dental implants, or a combination
of natural teeth and dental implants can be used to
support the bridge. The dental bridge type you choose
will depend on the condition of your smile, your cost
goals, and the cosmetic results you desire. Whether
you are looking for a t emporary or p ermanent tooth
loss solution, there is a dental bridge ideally suited
for your needs.
Types of Dental Bridges
are three types of dental bridges:
type of dental bridge work consists of two crowns for
the teeth on either side of the gap, with a false tooth
in between. Traditional bridges are the most commonly
used type of dental bridge and are made of ceramic or
porcelain fused to metal (PFM). If there are no surrounding
teeth to support the crowns, dental implants can be
used to fix the bridge in place.
type of dental bridge is used when there are teeth on
only one side of the gap in the mouth. Two crowns fused
to the replacement tooth are used to fix the bridge
to the adjacent natural teeth.
type of dental bridge is made up of plastic teeth and
gums supported by a metal framework. The bonded dental
bridge is generally lower in cost than other types of
bridges and is the most simple to apply.
