A bridge is a dental restoration that replaces one or more missing teeth. It is also called a “fixed bridge” or a “fixed dental prosthesis,” and extends across an area that has no teeth. It is typically made up of an artificial tooth fused between two crowns. There are different types of bridges:
- Traditional Bridges
- Implant Bridges
- Resin Bonded Bridges, also called Maryland Bridges
- Cantilever Bridges
Our dentists can explain to you the type of bridge that would be most appropriate for your optimal dental health, after a detailed examination.
Bridges are custom made so that your smile can be beautiful again and also so that the surrounding teeth do not shift out of position.
With good oral hygiene, bridges can last up to 10 years or longer.
