RESTORING ONE OR MORE TEETH IN A ROW WITH A DENTAL BRIDGE RESTORATION AT HEBRON SMILES
Patients who need tooth replacement have a variety of options to choose from. That includes implants, implant-supported overdentures, partial dentures, full dentures, and dental bridges. However, dental bridges are a unique option that many patients overlook. The dental bridge is a dental treatment used to replace one or several teeth. It spans the gap where the teeth are missing, using the adjacent teeth to support one or both sides. The dental bridge is also made of porcelain, which looks just like natural teeth, to ensure it blends in with the smile and does not stand out as an artificial dental restoration. Dr. Adnan Saleem and the staff at Hebron Smiles in Carrollton, Texas, are here to help patients find out if they are a good fit for dental bridges.
How does a bridge work?
The bridge works by essentially “bridging the gap” left after a patient has one or more teeth lost or extracted. The porcelain restoration uses false teeth called pontics that are attached to dental crowns on each side. The dental crown is placed over a dental implant abutment or a natural tooth to hold it in place. The bridge obtains its strength and stability from the teeth or implants on both sides of the restoration.
Why choose the dental bridge?
There are many reasons why a patient might opt for a dental bridge over other tooth replacement options. Bridges:
- Are more permanent than options such as partial dentures, which are removable and require special care
- Less expensive than dental implants
- Replace one or more teeth in a row, depending on the patient’s needs
- They are made of porcelain, allowing them to blend in with the smile
- They are often covered in part by dental insurance, making them more affordable for patients
- Are simple to care for
- Last many years with proper care
