Dental bridges are an incredibly popular, simple, and highly effective dental procedure – one that does what its name implies and performs cosmetic wonders: dental bridges quickly and efficiently work towards literally ‘bridging’ the gaps that are often left by one or more missing teeth. A single bridge is comprised of up to two or more dental crowns for the affected teeth, located on either side of the gap and a false tooth – or combination of false teeth – in between. The two or more ‘anchoring teeth’ are referred to as abutment teeth, while the false teeth are referred to as pontics. Pontics can be made from a wide variety of materials including gold, porcelain, or alloys – and even a combination of all these. Dental bridges can either be supported by an individual’s own natural teeth or prosthetic implants.
Dental bridges and crowns can provide you with a wide variety of visible benefits while resulting in as little recovery or down time as possible. In fact, when properly administered, this particular cosmetic dental procedure can offer to:
- restore your ability to both chew and speak properly
- prevent any of your remaining teeth from drifting out of their proper positions
- effectively maintain the look and shape of your face
- adequately distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing any lost or missing teeth
- in addition to efficiently helping you restore your smile
