Bridges in Brentwood

What are Dental Bridges

When natural teeth fall out, there are options to replace them, including dental implants or a partial denture. There is a third option to replace missing teeth, and that’s with a fixed dental bridge.

Typically, we use a dental bridge when patients have fewer teeth to replace. A bridge is also called a pontic, and it’s held in place by the abutment teeth. These abutment teeth are natural teeth or implants that help support the bridge on either side of the gap.

Bridge materials can vary depending on the location and structural needs of the tooth to be replaced. This can involve conservatively preparing one or both adjacent teeth similar to that of crowning teeth. We typically use porcelain that’s colour-matched to blend in with your natural teeth.

Types of Dental Bridges

There are four main types of bridges used in dental restorations.

Dental Implants and Bridges

A bridge is a false tooth, usually made of a precious metal. If it’s going to show, the dentist may attach porcelain to the base of the tooth, or another non-precious metal for strength.

Why You Should Replace Missing Teeth with a Dental Bridge

There are multiple factors that should be taken into account when it comes to replacing a missing tooth, and not just the aesthetic aspect of it. Apart from improving your smile, filling in the space can help to prevent further oral health issues.

Dental Bridge Home Care

Once you have a bridge, you need to take proper care of them. Taking care of your dental bridge properly can lead to a longer life span. Looking after your bridge affects the health of the teeth that it’s attached to. Inadequate oral hygiene can result in damage or decay, becoming a major problem if not addressed. To help ensure your bridge stays in good condition and lasts a long time, follow these home care instructions:
