Dental bridges are a fast and efficient solution to fill the gaps caused by one or more missing teeth. The dentist attaches the bridge to the teeth on each side of the gap and fixes it in a non-removable way. To create a bridge with a natural look, dental crowns are attached to each other. In many cases Dental Bridges improve chewing and speaking ability significantly. Sometimes, it is hard to decide if a Dental Bridge or a dental implant is the better option. An experienced dentist will lead the patient to choose the right option for the case.
Crowns used to form the bridge can be from various materials such as metals, porcelain, porcelain fused metals and resin. Metal-Porcelain Crowns or Zirconium-Porcelain Crowns are two of the most common methods. Dental bridges we use are crafted at reputable dental laboratories from around the world. The quality of the material is as important as a skilled, experienced dentist to achieve satisfying results.

Our dentist will discuss the desired outcome and plan the treatment with the patient. The teeth around the gap and general oral health will be examined. The dentist will prepare the abutment teeth by reshaping the enamel for the bridge to fit perfectly. Images and measurement of the area will be taken and sent to a certified dental laboratory for the creation of the bridge. A temporary bridge will be given to the patient to protect the area until the permanent bridge is made.
