Welcome to City Dental and Implant Center, your trusted destination for comprehensive dental care in the heart of the city. At our state-of-the-art facility, we specialize in a wide range of dental services, including the restoration of missing teeth with dental bridges.

What are Dental Bridges? Dental bridges are an effective and popular solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. They are designed to bridge the gap created by missing teeth, restoring your smile and functionality. Bridges consist of prosthetic teeth, called pontics, which are supported by neighboring teeth or dental implants on either side of the gap. By filling the space left by missing teeth, bridges not only enhance your appearance but also improve your ability to chew and speak properly.

Types of Dental Bridges:
  1. Traditional Dental Bridges: These bridges are the most common type and are typically made of porcelain fused to metal or ceramics. The prosthetic tooth is held in place by dental crowns that are placed on the adjacent teeth.
  2. Cantilever Dental Bridges: This type of bridge is used when there is only one adjacent tooth available to support the prosthetic tooth. The pontic is attached to a crown on a single neighboring tooth, providing stability and functionality.
  3. Maryland Dental Bridges: Also known as resin-bonded bridges, these are made of porcelain or porcelain fused to metal. The pontic is held in place by a metal or porcelain framework that is bonded to the backs of the adjacent teeth, eliminating the need for crowns.

The Dental Bridge Procedure: Getting a dental bridge typically involves multiple visits to our dental office. During the initial consultation, our experienced dentist will evaluate your oral health, discuss your goals and expectations, and determine the most suitable type of bridge for your unique needs.

The procedure involves the following steps:
  1. Teeth Preparation: The adjacent teeth that will support the bridge are prepared by removing a small amount of enamel to create space for the dental crowns.
  2. Impression: Accurate impressions of your teeth are taken to ensure the bridge fits perfectly and blends seamlessly with your natural teeth.
  3. Temporary Bridge: A temporary bridge will be placed to protect your prepared teeth while the final bridge is being fabricated in a dental laboratory.
  4. Bridge Placement: Once your custom-made bridge is ready, you will return for its placement. Our dentist will carefully position and adjust the bridge for optimal comfort and aesthetics.
  5. Final Fit and Bonding: Once satisfied with the fit and appearance of the bridge, our dentist will bond it permanently into place, ensuring stability and longevity.
