In short, dental bridges are a tooth replacement solution made of two dental crowns at each end and a pontic tooth in the middle. Essentially, bridges close the gap left behind missing teeth. We strongly recommend replacing teeth right away. Missing teeth are known to cause issues such as teeth shifting, decay, and periodontal disease. With bridges, patients have a convenient and durable way of replacing their missing teeth. In fact, there are different types of bridges to fit your unique needs.
The traditional bridge is often recommended when there is one missing tooth and a natural tooth on either side of the gap.
These bridges are similar to traditional bridges with the exception of only needing one abutment tooth.
A Maryland bridge uses a framework made of porcelain and metal. The framework is adhered to the adjacent natural teeth as opposed to using dental crowns.
Dental implants are used to support the bridge as opposed to natural teeth. This is recommended when there are no supportive natural teeth to hold the bridge in place.

Dental bridges have many benefits. They are simple and unless they are implant-supported, they do not need surgery. They take only a couple of weeks to complete the process. Usually, they are the most affordable option. Lastly, dental bridges can last about 5 to 7 years.
