What Is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is essentially a fabricated tooth that's fitted on and around a damaged or missing tooth, often with the help of porcelain crowns. The major difference between dental bridges and dentures is that a dental bridge does not come out once it has been placed inside a patient's mouth.

The three dominant types of dental bridges are:

  • Traditional Fixed Bridge –Two crowns hold this type of bridge in place.
  • Resin Bonded Bridges – This bridge is best-suited to addressing problems with your front teeth.
  • Cantilever Bridges – This is a solution for when there are teeth on only a single side of an open space inside a patient's mouth.

One of the best things about dental bridges is that most anyone with a missing or chipped tooth is a candidate for this type of cosmetic dentistry treatment. Then, by taking great care of your teeth going forward, you can anticipate years of dental bridge use without having to repair or replace it.
