Sunshine Dental Dental Bridges

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge literally bridges the gap created by one or more missing teeth. The bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap. These two or more anchoring teeth are called abutments and a false tooth/teeth is placed in-between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials, but are typically made from porcelain to aesthetically blend in with your natural teeth. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

There are three types of bridges

Traditional Bridges

These involve 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.

Zirconia Bridges

Zirconia is a very hard ceramic that is used for crown and bridge work. It has an excellent combination of strength and aesthetics, has excellent compatibility with your tissues and is an attractive material for people who would prefer a metal-free bridge.

Maryland Bonded Bridges

Maryland bonded bridges (also called a resin-bonded bridge) Metal or porcelain wings often on just one side of the bridge are bonded to your existing teeth. Maryland bridges typically have higher failure rates than traditional bridges. However, they do not require the placement of crowns.

And the Sunshine Dental Team is just lovely, Vicky was a very nice lady as well. Will definitely recommend to all my friends and family.

My experience with Sunshine Dental has been wonderful. They’re always really cooperative, and are really patient with me. My dental hygiene has always been something I’ve struggled with, but I have never felt judged at all by any of the team as I have at other practices before. On top of having an ongoing dentist phobia (which has improved thanks to Sunshine), I’m also autistic and very sensitive to sound and light in particular. The team at Sunshine Dental have always been really patient with me when I’ve visited, letting me have breaks so I don’t get overstimulated. Last time I went, I was expecting to have a load of cavities (shockingly, I didn’t - guess I just have strong teeth and have been lucky) but Vishal was really caring and explained everything so that nothing was a surprise to me. Although I haven’t been for an appointment for a while due to being away at university, I’m always happy with the service when I do go. And although I still have a way to go with my phobia and anxiety, I’m definitely a lot better considering it took a while to even get me through the door when I first came! These days I find that it’s a lot less scary than I think, and my dental hygiene is slowly improving.
