Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is effective in restoring confidence to smile again. Understanding the basic process of having a bridge may help to ease anxiety or fear of visiting a dentist to replace missing teeth.

Dental bridges are one of the options available to replace missing teeth. Dental bridges may not be the best permanent solution especially when compared to dental implants but they are however more cost efficient. Dental bridges can effectively replace teeth successfully providing that the abutment (supporting) teeth holding the bridge in place are healthy.

The abutment teeth are prepared by reshaping them in order to bond a fixed anchor cap which attaches to the bridge. The dental bridge is then affixed to the anchor teeth – filling in the missing tooth or teeth.
