What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is the quickest, easiest way to treat small cases of tooth loss. It literally “bridges” the gap between missing teeth with a prosthesis made from natural-looking ceramic material. It is secured onto either your natural teeth or dental implants. To ensure your dental bridge looks lifelike, we take an impression of your remaining teeth. This way, the bridge will mimic the exact size, shape, and color of the pearly whites you’ve lost. Not only does ceramic look incredibly realistic, but it’s also durable enough to last for a decade or longer with the right aftercare.
Types of Dental Bridges
When you come to see us for your initial consultation, we’ll go over your specific circumstances and goals to determine which type of dental bridge is right for you. Your dentist in The Woodlands, TX may then recommend one of the following:
A traditional bridge is held in place with dental crowns placed over the remaining teeth at either end of the gap in your grin. For the crowns to fit over these teeth, some of their enamel will have to be removed. However, once the bridge is in place, you’ll be able to smile confidently and chew virtually all of your favorite foods with ease.
Instead of anchoring a bridge onto two healthy teeth and permanently altering their structure, a bridge can be secured onto dental implants. One or two of these titanium posts are surgically inserted into your jawbone to replicate the roots of your missing teeth. Because the root structure is restored, you can enjoy several benefits that traditional bridges do not provide, such as jawbone stimulation and increased chewing power. Although implant bridges tend to cost more initially than traditional bridges, they can potentially last for much longer, making them a smart long-term investment.
