Dental bridges are permanent dental appliances used to replace missing teeth. They are called dental bridges because this appliance literally bridges the gap between your remaining teeth. We are excited to offer our patients multiple types of dental bridges to ensure you find the perfect solution to your smile. Based on the teeth you have lost, Dr. Bansal and Dr. Jun, our practiced dentists, may suggest one of the following:
- Traditional bridge – The most common form of dental bridges. Made from two dental crowns that anchor the false tooth, known as a pontic, in place.
- Resin-bonded bridge – Perfect for your front teeth. The pontic is cemented into place with brackets bonded to the back of the teeth adjacent to the gap.
- Cantilever bridge – Works in the same way as a traditional bridge, but is used when there are no teeth on one side of the gap.
Dental bridges are a great permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. We work hard to ensure that your dental bridge fits perfectly in your smile to restore your ability to chew and eat and to also boost your self-esteem after tooth loss.
