What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a false tooth, known as a pontic, which is fused between two crowns to fill in the space left by a missing tooth. The two crowns holding it in place are attached to your existing teeth and are called abutment teeth. A dental bridge is usually made from porcelain or ceramic, which can be matched to the color of your natural teeth. Bridge work can be an effective way to replace one or more missing teeth, restore your smile and improve your ability to chew and speak. It’s important to take good care of your mouth and gums before considering any type of dental bridge, as this will increase the chances of success. If you have gum disease, this needs to be treated before any work can be carried out. Plaque and tartar build-up can also lead to decay and gum disease, so it’s essential to brush and floss regularly, as well as visit your dentist for regular checkups. Dental bridges usually have a lifespan of around 10 years, but with good oral hygiene, they can last much longer.

Losing a tooth can be a traumatic experience, both emotionally and physically. Not only does it affect your appearance, but it can also make eating and speaking difficult. Fortunately, there are several options available for replacing missing teeth, and a dental bridge is one of the most popular. A tooth bridge is a great solution for people who have lost a tooth or multiple teeth. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, tooth bridges are also durable and long-lasting. If you are missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge is a great option to consider.
