Bridges

Dental bridges are a great way to replace missing teeth by bridging the gap in the lower or upper jaw.
Bridges are usually made of porcelain fused to metallic alloy. The use of porcelain is for attractive appearance and the use of underlying metal is to ensure strength and durability. Recently they are made of ceramic hard substrate such as zirconia.
The procedure of making a bridge begins by preparing the existing teeth on each side of the missing tooth or teeth. The enamel of the existing teeth is reduced to provide a space for bridge materials. Then, an impression is taken and sent to the laboratory. The laboratory technician makes a model of the prepared teeth and custom make the bridge to fit the exact bite with the proper materials.
While waiting for the technician to fabricate the bridge, a temporary bridge is fashioned to cover the prepared teeth. Once the dental office received the dental bridge, it is cemented on the prepared teeth with a suitable cement and checked for comfort.
The bridge may take some time to be tolerated, then it should be reasonably comfortable. Similar to any oral appliances, oral hygiene and follow-up dental office visits are highly recommended to ensure its workability and longevity.
