Dental Bridges Benefits Materials Used And Types

What material is used for dental bridges?

Dental bridges can be fabricated in metal-ceramic combination or can be all porcelain or all metal.

The metal used can be an alloy of base metals such as cobalt and Chromium, high Noble/ Noble metal alloy such as palladium, silver and gold.

Benefits of Dental Bridges:

  • Help restore your smile
  • Help to chew food and speak clearly
  • Help in enhancing your appearance
  • Help in distributing the biting forces evenly to the anchor teeth
  • Prevents neighboring teeth from drifting out of position
Types of bridges:

Traditional bridges: They are the most common form of bridges where there are anchor teeth on either side of the missing tooth

Cantilever bridges: Such bridges are used when there are teeth on only one side of the lost teeth.

Maryland bridges: They are made of porcelain or porcelain fused to metal. Have metal or porcelain wings on either side of the bridge that is bonded to your existing teeth.

If you have any queries related to dental bridges, feel free to consult our emergency dentist in Philadelphia.

I never thought I'd use "love" and "dentist" in the same sentence. Finally, a dentistry practice I trust! Dr. Maryam and her team are fantastic and so friendly. They are professional and took the time to sit with me and explain all the ins and outs of the procedures I was scheduled for. I highly recommend this practice.
