Dental Bridges

If you experienced a tooth loss and are suffering with a gap in your smile or bite, a dental bridge might be suitable for you.

What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental Bridges are commonly used to cover a space if you’re missing one or more teeth. They are cemented to natural teeth or implants surrounding the space where the tooth once stood. In addition to strengthening a damaged tooth, dental; bridges can be used to improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, alignment and dental occlusion (bite). Gaps left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, which can result in a misaligned bite. Bridges help prevent this from happening.

Replace Missing Teeth with Porcelain Bridges

Bridges made out of porcelain are a great replacement option for missing teeth as they can be shaped to replicate the original teeth and bite pattern. Porcelain is a very durable material that can withstand the mechanics of your natural bite, as well as naturally mimic the appearance and function of tooth enamel.

In-house Teeth Restoration Options available

Here at Naenae Dental Clinic with our experienced team we can create natural, and aesthetically pleasing restorations in-house using our computer aided design technology. This technology allows us to design restorations in-depth measuring your natural bite and tooth orientation so that the bridge restoration will fit seamlessly onto your teeth.

 

Alternatively, Implant-supported bridges are another option for replacing missing teeth. Instead of being supported by crowns or frameworks, these bridges are supported by dental implants.
