Dental bridges are ideal for people who are missing teeth and who don’t want to get a dental implant or who aren’t a viable candidate for a dental implant. Bridges work incredibly effectively at retaining or achieving a full smile, despite the fact that one or more teeth are missing.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a series of porcelain teeth that mimic the look and feel of your real teeth. The two surrounding teeth around the missing tooth will get filed down to make room for the bridge. The appliance is then placed with permanent dental cement and can last for many years with proper care and hygiene.
Who is a good candidate for a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges are often recommended to people who have one or more missing teeth and want to correct this problem. Some of the reasons you may want to have a bridge placed include:
- You have one or more missing teeth
- You don’t want to have a dental implant
- You aren’t a viable candidate for dental implants
- You want a long-lasting, durable option for achieving a full smile
Types of Dental Bridges
There are many different types of dental bridges, however, one of the most common is known as a PFM bridge, which stands for porcelain-fused-to-metal. This offers the beauty of tooth-colored dentition that you need with the durability of metal underneath that allows the bridge to last.
