Dental Bridges- A Way for Bridging the Gap between Your Teeth

The Dental bridges can restore your dental health by literally filling the empty space between your teeth which is caused by one or more missing teeth. Our dentists in Guardian Dental Care are experts in the fabrication of bridge for your teeth and you can find this service in our clinic.

What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridge comprises of a false tooth which is known as pontic, that bridges the gap between your teeth. The abutment teeth (support teeth) on either side of the gap which is also the anchoring teeth can hold the false tooth in its place. It is generally made from porcelain so that they can aesthetically blend with the original teeth.

Various types of Dental Bridges

The three types of dental bridges that are available for bridging the gap between your teeth are Traditional bridges, Maryland bonded bridges and Cantilever bridges. Among these, the traditional bridges are the most commonly accepted type for the patients.

Procedure for Getting the Dental Bridge

During your first visit at Guardian Dental Care, our dentist will first prepare the abutment teeth. It involves recontouring of these teeth through removing a part of enamel to allow space for the crown to be placed above them. In the next step, our dentists will takean impression of your teethand send it to a dental lab for the making of the bridge. A temporary bridge will be made for you in the interim, for protecting the exposed gum and teeth. During the second part of your visit, our dentist will remove the temporary bridge and the new porcelain bridge will be permanently fitted.
