Dental Bridges - Replacing Missing Teeth Effectively

At Warrington Dental PC, we provide dental bridges as a durable and aesthetic solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. Bridges help restore your smile, enhance your ability to chew and speak, and maintain the shape of your face.

What is a Dental Bridge and How Does it Work?

A dental bridge is a custom-made false tooth (or teeth) that is anchored on either side by crowns fitted onto the natural teeth or implants. The bridge spans the gap where one or more teeth are missing, restoring the functionality and appearance of your smile.

What are the Different Types of Dental Bridges?

The main types of dental bridges are traditional bridges (where crowns are placed on adjacent teeth), cantilever bridges (used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth), and Maryland bonded bridges (which use metal or porcelain wings attached to adjacent teeth).

What are the Benefits of Getting a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges not only improve the aesthetics of your smile but also restore your ability to chew and speak properly. They distribute the forces in your bite correctly and prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.

What is the Process of Getting a Dental Bridge?

The process typically involves reshaping the adjacent teeth to accommodate crowns. Impressions of your teeth are taken to create a custom bridge. A temporary bridge may be placed while the permanent one is being made. Once ready, the permanent bridge is fitted, adjusted, and cemented into place.

How Long Do Dental Bridges Last?

With proper care and good oral hygiene, dental bridges can last 5-15 years or even longer. Regular check-ups and cleanings are important to ensure the longevity of the bridge.
