Where one or more teeth is missing these can be replaced by a bridge. A bridge is where a false tooth is held in placed by fixing it to the adjacent teeth. Bridges are usually made from porcelain bonded to metal for strength and a carefully made bridge can be invisible to the eye.
There are three main types of Bridge:
- Traditional – this is where only one missing tooth is replaced by a porcelain or ceramic tooth
- Cantilever – is used where there are existing teeth on one side of the bridge to affix to
- Maryland Bonded – support several replacement teeth on a plastic and metal framework.
High quality dental bridges can last up to 15 years, or longer with good care of both the bridge and your remaining teeth. Good oral care is essential to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
We will only recommend to you the best form for tooth replacement that will suit your mouth and gums.
