Missing Teeth? Discover the Natural Look of a Dental Bridge!
Although there’s no perfect prosthetic for replacing natural teeth, modern dentistry does offer workable solutions, one of which is the dental bridge. A natural-looking bridge can restore your smile beautifully if you’re missing two or three teeth consecutively. Bridges are fixed prosthetic teeth supported by dental crowns placed on the healthy teeth on either side of the gap left by missing teeth. At Lake Chaparral Dental Care, we offer tooth bridge services to our patients to help replace missing teeth.
Tooth Bridge Options
Dental bridges can be made from various materials, including gold, pure porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, and porcelain fused to zirconia. Porcelain fused to metal or zirconia bridges combines durability with the natural-looking appearance of real teeth.
The most common types of dental bridges are traditional bridges and implant-supported bridges.
- Traditional bridges are fixed prosthetic teeth, also called pontics, supported by dental crowns on abutment teeth on either side of the gap left by missing teeth. Dr. Palka Sawhney Sharma will custom-design your bridge to match the colour, size, and shape of your natural teeth so that it blends smoothly with your smile.
- Implant-supported bridges are anchored by dental implants rather than crowns on abutment teeth, making your bridge more stable and secure.
Advantages of Choosing a Dental Bridge to Replace Lost Teeth
A fixed dental bridge can resolve many of the issues you face when losing natural teeth. It can:
- Restore the beauty of your smile
- Restore your ability to bite, chew, and eat
- Restore your ability to speak clearly
- Keep your face and jaw from sagging due to bone loss after losing natural teeth
- Prevent natural teeth from shifting
