Dental bridges are natural-looking devices that can repair the gap left by lost teeth. Bridges are tooth replacements that are natural-looking, custom-made, and barely detectable. We can not only restore your smile by replacing missing teeth with dental bridges in Burlington, but we can also provide a more natural appearance and an enhanced appropriate bite connection between your upper and lower teeth. Proper dental bridge care will allow your new dental restoration to last for ten years or more. This entails brushing and flossing your teeth daily, just as you would with natural teeth. In addition to everyday care, it is critical to visit Monahan Family and Cosmetic Dentistry on a regular basis for optimal care and cleanings.
There are three main types of dental bridges: traditional, cantilever, and Maryland. At Monahan Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we will work with you to determine which type of bridge is best for your smile. Traditional dental bridges are the most common type of dental bridge. They are composed of an artificial tooth (pontic) that is placed between two supporting crowns (abutments). Traditional bridges are usually made of porcelain, ceramic, or metal. Cantilever bridges are dental bridges that are supported by only one tooth or implant. They are typically used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth space. Maryland bridges, also known as resin-bonded bridges, are composed of an artificial tooth (pontic) that is attached to metal bands on either side of the pontic. These metal bands are then bonded to your existing teeth. Maryland bridges are typically used when there are adjacent teeth on both sides of the missing tooth space.
