Dental Bridges at Collins Road Family Dental
Dental Bridge at Collins Road Family Dental
Are you missing one or more teeth? A dental bridge is a fixed restoration which uses crowns to replace missing teeth with tooth replacements that are permanently attached. A bridge is anchored onto healthy teeth or implants to restore your smile. They can help you eat and speak normally. Bridges can also prevent your teeth from shifting and improve your smile. They can replace the unwanted removable denture. Please call us at (860) 589-4577 for an appointment to see if this is the proper treatment for you.
There are a few types of bridges that the dentist can choose from.
This type of bridge is ideal for closing off very small gaps between teeth, or spaces caused by decay. They will utilize material from the surrounding teeth to create the false tooth itself as well as cement it into place.
This type of bridge will be slightly larger than the onlay, and they are perfect for closing gaps created by missing or broken teeth.
Cantilevers come in handy when there is one tooth on either side of the gap that can support a section of dental bridge. They will extend over the front teeth, but the back teeth bear the brunt of the weight and stress.
An implant supported prosthesis is ideal for closing wide spaces created by missing teeth.
