What are dental bridges?

Reset Decrease Increase
When a tooth is missing, a three unit bridge can be a good choice for replacing it. In a three unit bridge an artificial tooth is connected on either side to crowns which are placed on the neighboring teeth to hold the bridge in place.

A three unit bridge can be made of gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal. Dental bridges are custom made for you in a dental laboratory so it may take two or more appointments to complete your bridge.

On the first visit, the dentist will numb the area to make you feel more comfortable.
The dentist may also use a rubber dam to protect your mouth while he or she is working. The dentist will first remove any decay and will use a hand piece to shape the teeth that will support the bridge. Then, the dentist will take an impression of your teeth.
The lab uses the impression to make a model of your mouth. They’ll use the model to make a bridge that precisely fits your teeth and bite.

In the meantime, the dentist will place a temporary bridge. On the next visit, the dentist will remove the temporary bridge and begin a series of steps to confirm the fit of you new bridge.

When the dentist is satisfied with the fit he or she will try in the final bridge.
When everything looks good, the dentist will cement or bond the bridge into place.

Three unit bridges have several advantages:

- they replace teeth and improve the biting and chewing
- they assist in clear speech
- help prevent teeth from shifting
- the crowns can serve as restoration for the neighboring teeth that have damage or decay

When you need to replace a missing tooth, a three unit bridge can be a functional good looking solution.
