What are Dental Bridges, and What are They Used For?

Dental bridges are dental prosthetics that we can use to ``bridge`` the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Bridges can be supported by dental implants, natural teeth, or a combination.
Bridges are an essential part of dental care because they can help to:
-Restore chewing and speaking function
-Maintain the shape of your face
-Prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of place

The Materials Dental Bridges Are Made Of

Dental bridges are usually made of porcelain, metal, or a combination. The type of dental bridge you choose will depend on your specific needs and preferences.
Porcelain dental bridges are the most popular type of bridge. They are made to match the color of your natural teeth and are less likely to stain. Porcelain bridges are also more durable than other bridges and can last for many years with proper care.
Metal dental bridges are made of titanium or another type of metal alloy. They are solid and durable but can be noticeable if your natural teeth are a different color. We often use metal bridges in areas of the mouth that don't show when you smile.

How Dental Bridges are Custom-fit to Your Mouth

Your dental bridge will be custom-made to fit your mouth. The first step is for Dr. D'Amelio and her team to take impressions of your teeth so that the dental lab can create a model. The dental lab will use this model to craft your dental bridge.
Once your dental bridge is ready, we will schedule a second appointment for you to come in and have it fitted. During this appointment, Dr. D'Amelio will check your dental bridge's fit and make any necessary adjustments. Once she is satisfied with the fit, she will bond the dental bridge to your natural teeth or implants.

How Long Do Dental Bridges Last?

The lifespan of a bridge can vary depending on several factors, including the materials used and the health of the surrounding teeth. Bridges made of ceramic or porcelain tend to be more durable than those made of gold or silver, but all bridges require regular brushing and flossing to stay clean and prevent gum disease.


How to Care for Dental Bridges

Taking care of your dental bridge is essential to ensure that it lasts for many years. Here are some tips for caring for your dental bridge:

  • Brush your teeth twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
  • Floss daily to remove plaque and food debris from between your teeth.
  • Visit your dentist regularly for dental checkups and cleanings.
  • Avoid chewing hard foods like ice that can damage your dental bridge.
