What is a bridge?
Looking for dental bridges? Then you should visit Smile Hub Dental Clinic.
A dental bridge is used to substitute a missing tooth. A bridge is a fixed restoration that is anchored by the adjacent teeth on either side of the crevice. The neighbouring teeth are known as abutment teeth. The bridge has a crown on each of the abutment teeth, and the false tooth that replaces the missing tooth is affixed to the crowns, thus closing the gap.
There are three primary varieties of bridges available at Smile Hub Dental Clinic, which can be provided to patients seeking dental bridges:
1. Conventional Bridge
By minimising the size of the abutment teeth, a bridge is created. The quantity of reduction the dentist will make to the abutment teeth will depend on their location and the type of bridge that will be created. The restorative material used to construct the bridge will replace the tooth structure extracted from the abutment teeth. The restorative material is utilised to restore the teeth’s size and shape. The replacement tooth will be affixed to the two abutment teeth, closing the gap and restoring function.
These conventional bridges can be constructed from three distinct materials:
All-ceramic, metal-free cosmetic bridges: these are porcelain bridges that do not require any metal reinforcement.
A porcelain-metal fusion bridge Gold
2. Resin-bonded or Maryland-style bridges
If the abutment teeth are beautiful, healthy teeth, the tooth reduction necessary for conventional bridges would not be desirable. Therefore, we provide the option of a resin-bonded bridge, which requires minimal or no tooth reduction. These bridges use metal or porcelain wings fused to the abutments with a resin material to anchor the pontoons.
