A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth.
Types of bridges vary, depending upon how they are fabricated and the way they anchor to the adjacent teeth. Conventionally, bridges are made in the laboratory using a variety of materials. A bridge is fabricated by reducing the teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth by a preparation pattern determined by the location of the teeth and by the material from which the bridge is fabricated.
The materials used for the bridges include gold, porcelain bonded to metal or in metal free materials. The amount and type of reduction done to the adjacent teeth varies slightly with the different materials used.
A dental bridge usually requires at least two visits to the practice. In the first appointment, the dentist will numb and prepare the area where the bridge will be fitted. An impression/3D scan will be taken and the dentist will note the shade of the surrounding teeth to best match the crown to your teeth. A temporary bridge will be fitted whilst we wait for the permanent bridge to be designed at the laboratory.
During your second visit, usually a fortnight later , your permanent bridge will be fitted by the dentist.
There are a few reasons why you might need a crown or a bridge. Instances include:
