Dental Bridges

Dental bridges can replace damaged or missing teeth with a prosthesis, usually held in place by a crown on the nearest tooth or teeth. A dental bridge can provide a full restoration of the function and appearance of your natural teeth.

Why Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges can be the perfect replacement option to restore a confident smile if you have missing or decayed teeth.

Understanding Dental Bridges

At TrUDent Clinics we provide dental bridges in Izmir. Our dentists are committed to finding the right solution for missing teeth, and bridges often win for options, durability, and price.

By restoring your ability to enjoy food and smile with confidence, dental bridges are an excellent solution to missing teeth. They can also help with other problems often associated with tooth loss, such as speech and language problems, and possible misalignment.

How Do Dental Bridges Work?

A bridge is a set of replacement teeth that are held in place by abutment teeth (either your own natural teeth or dental implants on either side of the gap). Bridges can be made in a variety of ways to suit the individual needs of the patient. Several materials can be used to make a pontic (false tooth). They are usually made of porcelain to ensure that they blend in with both sides of your teeth.

Should I Choose Bridges?

Bridges can be an excellent tooth replacement option. There are other solutions, including dental implants and dentures. Personalized medical advice for your situation is always best. To make an informed decision about your oral health, talk to your dentist about the benefits, risks, and costs of different options.

Types of Dental Bridges

Dentists can design bridges in different ways, depending on the number of teeth and other personal factors. Here are some dental bridgework options:

Traditional Bridges

Conventional bridges are the most common type used in dentistry. Your dentist will make two crowns on the abutment teeth, with the bridge extending between them, if your natural teeth are used to support the bridge.

Maryland Bridges

Maryland bridgework works like traditional bridgework, but rather than having two crowns on each tooth, metal or porcelain frameworks are bonded to each tooth to support it.

Cantilever Bridges

With a cantilever bridge, only one tooth is needed as an abutment. The bridge is supported on one side only, with a crown attached to the natural tooth. If you are missing several teeth and only have one tooth next to the gap, this is an excellent solution.

Implant-Supported Bridges

Implanted bridges work well for many missing teeth. The first step is to place dental implants in your mouth. These will support the bridge(s). Your dentist will use the implants as a support to place the bridge.

Bonded Bridges & Composite Bridges

Adhesive or composite bridges are often used as temporary restorations while people await the removal and replacement of one or more teeth. These bridges use a composite bonding material to hold the bridge in place.
