BRIDGES ARE RESTORATIVE STRUCTURES THAT REPLACE MISSING TEETH.
Dental bridges literally “bridge the gap” resulting from the missing of one or more teeth. Dental bridges are a very common, affordable, low-risk treatment for those who are suffering from missing teeth problems.
Bridges are placed with the help of dental crowns. The false tooth which lies between the two crowns is called the pontics. The pontics is fixed on the gum with the help of anchoring crowns.
DENTAL BRIDGES ARE OF DIFFERENT TYPES.
Different types of bridges include:
Fixed / traditional bridge
Maryland bonded bridges
These artificial teeth are made of different materials such as gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. In most cases, bridge fitting requires 2 visits.
Dental bridges give a natural look to your teeth. If properly cared for, a bridge can last many years.

Improve your smiling appearance
