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.
