Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth. They can be made of porcelain, metal, or gold and they’re cemented in place by a dentist. Dental bridges are not only functional but also provide aesthetics through their natural-looking appearance.
Dentists often recommend dental bridges to patients who need tooth replacement due to loss of chewing function, damage caused by orthodontics, cracked teeth, and more. Here’s how they work: the crowns on either side of the bridge are attached with two artificial teeth known as pontic that fill in the space created when one or more teeth were lost due to decay or injury – this creates support for both sides of your smile and prevents shifting from occurring while you chew!
Many people lose teeth because of accidents, tooth decay, gum disease, or other medical conditions. Dental bridges are a good option for replacing lost teeth and preventing further tooth loss. A dental bridge is made by connecting two crowns with an artificial tooth called the pontic in between them. This can be done even if you don’t have enough healthy teeth to anchor the bridge to as long as there is one remaining molar on either side of the missing ones that can support it.
A dental bridge is similar to a false tooth in that it has a crown on either side. One of these two crowns will have the pontic, or artificial tooth attached to it. The other one would be fitted with an abutment post that connects between your natural teeth and serves as an anchor for the new bridge. This replacement tooth can be made by a dentist from gold, porcelain, or metal.
The dental bridge is attached to your natural teeth using strong cement called dental acrylic which fills the space where they are missing and provides support for the false tooth in between them. Once everything has been set up, you will have an extra molar that should last.
A bridge is a non-surgical way to replace one or many teeth. A bridge uses the adjacent teeth as anchors to support the missing tooth or teeth. With today’s dental advancements, a bridge can be fabricated in a fairly short period of time, using a metal or nonmetal foundation. Don’t let that missing tooth affect the way you speak, eat, and smile. Bridges yield immediate results that last a lifetime. Ask your dentist what type of bridge may be right for you.
