What are Dental Bridges?

When patients are missing teeth, they have a variety of options available to restore their smile. Dental implants, dental bridges, and partial dentures are the three ways that a cosmetic dentist such as Dr. John Aurelia can bring back the original beauty of a patient’s smile. A very affordable option is tooth bridges. Rochester Hills’ patients can benefit from having restorations such as these to improve the overall appearance of their smile.

Dental bridges are restorations that are typically made from porcelain. This material is often used in cosmetic dentistry due to the fact that it closely mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel, and is strong enough to function properly as a replacement for missing natural teeth. They can be fabricated to match a patient’s existing teeth closely, to keep it from standing out as a restoration. Other cosmetic restorations are made to match seamlessly with a patient’s smile, such as crowns, fillings, and partial dentures.

Bridges are fabricated with two crowns and a pontic. A pontic is a false tooth that is made and fused to two dental crowns to create a restoration that is designed to fill the space left from the missing tooth. The pontic rests on the gum line, while the crowns are bonded over the top of the surrounding teeth for support. They are bonded with strong dental bonding and can last several years with regular care and maintenance.

Dr. John Aurelia offers dental bridges along with other cosmetic restorations to assist patients in restoring their smiles after the loss of a natural tooth, or several teeth. While there are alternatives, dental bridges are an affordable way to improve the smile. If you are considering dental bridges, or are curious to learn more about the alternatives, call Dr. John Aurelia today to schedule your initial consultation appointment. During this time, you can discuss the various options for tooth replacement and decide on the solution that works best for you, your budget, and your lifestyle. Together, you and your dentist can make the best choice for bringing back the beauty and essence of your smile!
