Dental bridges are made up of artificial teeth that bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. These artificial teeth are held in place by one or two abutment teeth which are either existing natural teeth or tooth implants. A fixed porcelain bridge is a cost-effective way to replace a single tooth or a couple of missing teeth.
Porcelain Bridges Look Natural
Dental porcelain looks natural. It is durable and remarkable in its ability to replicate both the form and function of original teeth.
Dental Bridge Alternatives
Two alternative cosmetic restorations to bridges are dentures which offer a more affordable solution to replacing many missing teeth and dental implants which offer the most stable solution of all.
Benefits of Dental Bridges
Dental Bridges Provide Stability
Filling the gaps in your smile with dental bridges will provide stability and confidence when you smile, speak and eat. Fixed bridge restorations stabilise your jawbone, preventing your adjacent teeth from shifting to fill gaps caused by one or more missing teeth, reducing the risk of bone loss and maintaining your facial structure. Furthermore, the stability of bridge restorations protects your bite, preventing your teeth from wearing down over time.
- Equally distribute the forces in your bite preventing worn-down teeth
- Prevent healthy teeth from becoming misaligned
- Protect the integrity of your jawbone and maintain facial structure
- Improve your smile with natural-looking teeth
- Build your self-esteem and boost your confidence
- Speak and eat without inhibition
