They are much less expensive than the dental implants, so they are accessible to the greatest majority of the patients with dental problems.
The dental bridges are basically fused in between two porcelain crowns, and they help you obtain a beautiful, straight and healthy smile.
Your teeth will look natural, and they will behave just like your biologic teeth, so there are no restrictions in chewing or talking properly.
These dental bridges will basically help fill in the gap between your teeth, and they are made up of an artificial tooth, and two special caps (the crowns).
With today’s advanced technology dentists are able to provide very high quality dental bridges which have nothing in common with the cheap, almost “yellow plastic” looking false teeth as they looked a few decades ago.
Types of Dental Bridges:
The Maryland Bonded Bridges
Most commonly, dentists will choose this option if the patient is missing teeth in the front. Also, these represent the perfect solution in case the abutment teeth are quite healthy without any big-sized fillings. The Maryland bonded bridges are also known as resin bonded type of dental bridges.
The cantilever dental bridges
When there is only one single abutment tooth present, dentists will use the cantilever dental to re-design your beautiful and straight smile.
The standard dental bridges
These are generally fixed prosthetics, and they are made from a combination of porcelain and metal or only porcelain.
The greatest advantages of dental bridges:
– Unlike with other tooth replacement procedures, in order to get dental bridges you need to visit the dentist only twice. If you choose dental implants, these are way more expensive, and it takes several months to complete the treatment.
– Thanks to today’s special technology of using the CAD-CAM system or 3D Imagery, dentists can now create dental bridges which look and behave exactly like your biological teeth. The teeth will not look artificial at all.
– With dental bridges you can keep your facial tonus nice and healthy. As you might already know, missing teeth in the back or the front will make the entire facial musculature to change, giving the impression you are much older than in reality
– Fixed dental bridges come with a warranty of about 10 to 15 years. Smaller maintenance work might be needed at times, but in fact the dental bridges are extremely durable and made of high quality materials.
