Using dental bridges for tooth replacement
Dental bridges are one of several tooth replacement options available for patients in Windsor Hill, Maryland, at Edmondson Family Dental Care. Dr. Jon Edmondson and his team work alongside patients to ensure they have solutions that fit their needs and budget. Many patients choose fixed dental bridges for smile restoration because they are affordable and long-lasting. Let’s take time to learn more about dental bridges and how they work to restore the function and health of the smile.
What is a dental bridge?
Dr. Edmondson describes the dental bridge as a restoration that is not removable but is bonded into place within the smile to replace one or more teeth in a row. The bridge is made of dental crowns on each side and false teeth fused in between to create a single restoration. The adjacent teeth are used to anchor the bridge in place. Dental implants may be used instead if there is no adjacent tooth on one or both sides of the missing teeth.
Why should I consider dental bridges for tooth replacement?
There are several advantages to choosing a dental bridge for tooth replacement:
- Cost-Effective. Dental bridges offer an affordable way to replace missing teeth for patients.
- Durability. Fixed dental bridges can last up to 15 years or longer with proper care and maintenance.
- Natural Aesthetic. Dental bridges are customized to blend in with the shape, size, and color of existing teeth for a natural look, thanks to the use of porcelain. This material closely mimics the look of natural tooth enamel.
- Improved Function. Quality dental bridges restore your ability to chew and speak correctly, which is lost when teeth are missing.
