Are you looking to replace one or a few missing teeth that are affordable and looks great!
Then the dental bridge could be the option for you!!
A dental bridge is made up of crowns that are supported by either your natural teeth or dental implants. To replace one missing tooth, you will require a 3 unit bridge which is made up of 3 crowns. The outside crowns on the bridge will be fitted over your prepared natural tooth and the middle crown of the bridge will be your replacement tooth. If you have 2 missing teeth, then a 4 unit bridge would be required using the same technique. They are a great affordable option if you choose not to have dental implants and can use your natural teeth for the support.
Crowns can be made of a variety of different materials and new materials are continually being introduced. Some of the most popular options are listed below.
- Porcelain bonded to precious metal: This is what most crowns are made from. A precious metal base is made and then porcelain is applied in layers over it.
- Porcelain: These crowns are made entirely out of porcelain and are not as strong as bonded crowns. But they can look very natural and are most often used for front teeth.
- All-ceramic: This modern technique offers a metal-free alternative, which can give the strength of a bonded crown and the appearance of a porcelain crown. Therefore it is suitable for use in all areas of the mouth. Porcelain fused to metal
Dental bridges can be completed in one trip only with 1-3 visits to the dentist if using your natural teeth for the support. If you are having a dental bridge using dental implants as the support then it may be 1-3 trips depending on your bone quality and success of the dental implant.
