Dental bridges are used to replace a missing or extracted tooth or teeth. If you have lost teeth, then a dental bridge can make a dramatic difference, allowing you to enjoy a full range of foods again, restoring your smile and improving your speech.
When you come to a Real Dental surgery, your dentist will assess the condition of your teeth and decide on the best treatment options to offer you. He or she will then talk through the choices that are available and advise on the best way forward. Dental bridges are often used to replace one or more teeth. They work by using the teeth on either side of gap that needs to be filled as anchors for new crowns and artificial teeth. These new elements comprise the dental bridge. The base of a bridge is usually made out of precious metal and the crowns and artificial teeth are constructed out of substances such as porcelain, which is also often used to cover the bridge base to give an attractive cosmetic finish. Dental bridges must be specially prepared to ensure a perfect fit and a natural look. They provide an excellent cosmetic solution that, with good oral care, can last for many years.
