The “traditional bridge” is the most popular type of dental bridge and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. This type of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached to pontics (artificial teeth), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth. The great thing about dental bridges is that they are very strong and durable, providing you take proper care of your mouth, and will only need replacement or to be re-cemented rarely, and almost always it’s due simply to normal wear-and-tear.
Reasons for a fixed bridge:
- Fill space of missing teeth
- Maintain facial shape
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
- Restore chewing and speaking ability
- Restore your smile
- Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance
