Dental bridges replace missing teeth by anchoring artificial teeth (pontics) to adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. They restore functionality and prevent surrounding teeth from shifting. A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth. There are several types of bridges like Zirconia, DMLS, PFM, Peek, Composite, PMMA, etc according to the material of choice. You and our dentist will discuss the best options for your particular case. Bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached to pontics (artificial teeth), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years; however, they may need replacement or need to be re-cemented due to normal wear.

Reasons for a bridge:

  • To replace the missing teeth.
  • Periodontic treatment
  • Root canals
  • Dental implants
  • Orthodontic treatment
