Dentist in Calgary Area Offers Teeth Bridge Services

Your smile is not what it was in your youth. Have you considered teeth bridge services in Calgary AB to restore the function of your smile and the overall upbeat character your face once possessed? A dentist who provides bridge services can help.

What Is A Dental Bridge?

A bridge is a custom-made replacement tooth that fills the space your original tooth left when it fell out. Unlike dentures, a bridge comes with the benefit of permanently restoring your bite while also maintaining the natural shape of your face. 

Are Dental Teeth Bridge Services the Same As Implants?

Teeth bridges are not the same as dental implants. A bridge is typically made of porcelain and moulded to the design of the original tooth. Such is the reason why a bridge maintains the shape of the person’s face. 

On the other hand, an implant is an artificial root and requires screws that mount the porcelain portion to the jawbone. An implant can last for up to 15 years without requiring replacement. Meanwhile, a dental bridge may need replacing within five to seven years. 

The Pros of Dental Bridge Services

One of the main advantages of dental bridge services is the comfort individuals feel. A dental bridge procedure does not involve invasive surgery and does not require bone grafting. 

Dental bridge procedures also tend to be cheaper than implants because of the non-invasiveness and fewer visits. You may only require seeing your dentist two times to complete the process.

Dental Bridge vs. Dental Implant

Some individuals choose a dental implant over a bridge because of longevity. It is undoubtedly true that implants do not lose their natural appearance with age, quite like teeth bridges. However, a dental implant is more expensive and less likely to be covered by your insurance company. 

The installation process also comes with longevity, as an implant can take up to six months to complete. Implants come with a 97 percent success rate. The complications associated with the invasive operation, should they arise, are significant, though.
