Professional Bridge Treatment Newbury Park, CA
A bridge is prescribed when one or more teeth are missing in between two healthy teeth or implants. With these two anchoring teeth, a pontic can be used to bridge the gap. Pontics can be made from various materials including solid gold for reliable long wear, porcelain fused to a gold base for strength and beauty, and high-strength metal-free porcelain for optimum cosmetic results.
Specific oral problems can also be fixed with various types of bridges, such as:
- Traditional Bridges – The most common type of bridges, these involve creating a crown for the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth to provide anchor for the pontic in between.
- Cantilever Bridges – These are used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth. However, this is not recommended in the back of the mouth where it can put too much force on other teeth and cause damage.
- Resin-bonded Bridge – Also known as Maryland bridges, these are made of porcelain, porcelain fused to metal or plastic teeth which are bonded to your existing teeth.
