Bridge To Restore Your Smile
There are four main types of dental bridges: traditional bridge, cantilever bridge, Maryland and implant supported. A traditional bridge consists of a false tooth that is being held by dental crowns that have been cemented to another tooth. The most popular type is the traditional bridge. Similar to the traditional bridge is the cantilever dental bridge. It is held in place by a dental crown that is cemented to only one abutment tooth. You would only need one natural tooth next to the missing tooth. Maryland bridges use the adjacent teeth to the missing tooth. It uses either metal framework or porcelain that is bonded on the back of the teeth. Implant supported bridges use dental implants instead of crowns. Usually, an implant is surgically placed for each missing tooth and then the implants hold the bridge in position.
The cost of a bridge will vary due to many different things such as:
- number of teeth that need to be filled
- materials used
- additional treatments
Depending on the type of bridge you would be receiving will also change the price. A bridge will restore your smile, your ability to properly chew, restore your speech and maintain the shape of your face.
