Dental Bridges

Top Dentist In Cottleville, MO

Missing teeth can have a profound impact on your smile, facial appearance, bite, and overall oral health. Dental bridges provide an effective and aesthetically pleasing solution to fill the gaps and restore your smile.

What are Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth, known as pontics, held in place by dental crowns cemented onto the adjacent teeth or implants. The bridge spans the gap where teeth are missing, restoring functionality and appearance.

Types of Dental Bridges

  • Traditional Bridges: These are the most common type, made of porcelain fused to ceramics or metals.
  • Cantilever Bridges: Used when adjacent teeth are present on only one side of the gap.
  • Maryland Bonded Bridges: Supported by a metal or porcelain framework.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges: Anchored to dental implants, offering higher stability.

Why Choose a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge offers multiple benefits:

  • Aesthetic Improvement: Enhances the appearance of your smile.
  • Functional Restoration: Allows you to chew and speak normally.
  • Prevention of Misalignment: Keeps surrounding teeth from drifting out of position.
  • Facial Structure Support: Helps maintain the natural shape of your face.
  • Alleviating Bite Stress: Distributes bite force evenly across teeth.

  • Follow-up Care: Regular check-ups ensure the bridge is functioning correctly.
