A dental bridge is a great solution to replacing missing teeth. This is a possible solution when you have some natural teeth remaining in the mouth that can be used to support the dental bridge.
A fixed dental bridge offers more benefits compared to removable dentures. It’s also far less complex procedure compared to a dental implant procedure.
There are several benefits to choosing a dental bridge, including:
- Appearance: Restores the cosmetic appearance of a smile and helps to support facial structure.
- Strength: Distributes the bite force of the teeth evenly across the teeth and helps to restore strength to the teeth.
- Tooth alignment: Prevents the neighbouring teeth from entering into a gap and becoming crooked.
Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials including porcelain (ceramic) crowns, and porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crowns. There are pros and cons to choosing different materials. Crowns are chosen based on strength and also which type will be the most natural looking restoration.
Placing a bridge normally involves two visits to Goulburn Dentist. During the first visit, we will prepare for the fit of your crown or bridge and take an accurate measurement. In the meantime, you will be fitted with a temporary bridge until your custom fitted bridge is ready.
On the second visit, the custom fitted bridge will be placed in your mouth and final adjustments will be made. Finally the dental bridge will be bonded in place.
