Dental bridges treatment is a form of dental restoration treatment widely practised by dentists to fill in the missing gaps created by two or more teeth. This form of treatment involves the use of fixed prosthetic dental devices that are attached onto existing teeth (abutment teeth) or dental implant encircling the site where the original teeth/ tooth were present. Some of the biggest benefits of dental bridges are, they can help restore your smile, they help you to chew and speak properly, they maintain the shape of your face and most importantly they prevent the remaining teeth from moving out of place. Dental or tooth bridges are made up of two or more dental crowns with false tooth/ teeth in between and the crowns acting as anchors are cemented onto the natural teeth to hold the bridge firmly onto its place. The number of false teeth (pontics) available in a dental bridge depends upon the area to be covered by missing teeth. Dental bridges can be made of a number of materials, but porcelain or ceramic bridges are the best as they can be matched with the colour of your natural teeth. Before a dental bridge is made, your dentist will first prepare your abutment teeth by reducing its size such that the prosthetic fits in well. After reducing the size of your teeth, dental impressions will be taken and the correct shade of the bridge will be determined by the dentist and shared with the lab technician. Using this impression, the lab technician prepares the custom bridge. During this time your dentist will put on a temporary bridge to protect the "prepared" tooth from any further damage. Once your permanent bridge gets ready, the dentist cements it permanently onto your abutment teeth, which can last upto 15 long years. Cost of dental bridges treatment depends upon the bridge material used, but not as high as dental implant costs.
