Bridge the Gap – Replace Missing Teeth, Unlike Dentures

Dental Bridges are false teeth that are used to replace missing teeth, unlike dentures however these are fixed permanently onto your teeth by metal hooks that attach onto teeth on either side of the gap creating a bridge across the gap.

Can I have a bridge immediately after the extraction?

It can take up to 6 months for your gums to heal properly after an extraction. This means that you may need to have a temporary solution before the bridge is fitted.

What are bridges made of?

Bridges are usually made of porcelain bonded to precious metal. However, other non-precious metals can be used in the base for strength. There are also new bridges made entirely of a special type of strong porcelain.

There a few types of bridges:

  • Traditional bridges involves creating a crown for the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth, with a pontic in between. Traditional bridges are the most common type of bridge and are made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.
  • Cantilever bridges are used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth.
  • Maryland bonded bridges (also known as a resin-bonded bridge) are made of plastic teeth and gums supported by a metal framework. Metal wings on each side of the bridge are bonded to your existing teeth.
