A dental bridge can be used to fill the gap between two adjacent teeth. A specially designed structure incorporating a hollow crown to support the missing tooth is prepared in the dental laboratory. Similarly to crowns and implants, the replacement bridge “tooth” will be matched to the rest of your teeth to give as natural a result as possible. Bridgework can be constructed from a variety of different materials depending upon the application – your cosmetic dentist will advise what is most appropriate.
- A bridge is a dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants
- Conventionally, bridges are made out of the moth then attached, however, they can be fabricated in the mouth using composite materials.
- A bridge is fabricated by reducing the teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth by a preparation pattern determined by the location of the teeth and by the material from which the bridge is fabricated.
- Bridges are used to improve your smile and appearance. They may also assist in speech and shape of the face.
- Filling in the gaps with a bridge can releive the stress on teeth adjacent to gaps.
- Bridges can help prevent gum disease.
