Phoenix Dental Bridges

What are Dental Bridges?

There are many options to replace missing teeth. Dental bridges and dental implants are the most common options when you are missing one or two teeth. Many patients choose to have a dental bridge placed because it avoids surgery and a long healing period. If you would like to learn more about dental implants, Check out our dental implant page to read more about this procedure. Bridges are a non-removable solution to many cosmetic and dental health problems that can occur in your mouth. Some of the reasons for needing a bridge include the following:

– Fill the space of missing teeth

– Maintain facial structure

– Prevent remaining teeth from drifting position

– Restore chewing and speaking ability

– Restoration of smile

– Upgrading a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance

What Dental Bridge is best for me?

Different types of bridges exist, and it is necessary to consult with a dentist to determine which option is best for your particular situation. The most commonly used bridge is the porcelain fixed bridge, which resembles natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of two crowns placed on two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth), with the crowns attached to the pontics (artificial teeth) that fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Although bridges, like most other dental restorations, may eventually require replacements or may need to be re-cemented due to regular wear, they are made to be durable and strong. Bridges are expected to last many years and provide you with a complete and functioning mouth and smile.
