Custom Dental Bridges Restore a Lost Tooth Beautifully and Comfortably.

A dental bridge is a customized way to replace a single or multiple missing teeth. This prosthetic creates a bridge to fill the area where a tooth or teeth were lost or extracted, supported by either natural teeth or implants. If you have one or more missing teeth, a dental bridge in Lisle can allow you to smile with total confidence, as this restoration will appear completely natural.

What are Dental Bridges?

A bridge is made of crowns placed on either side of the area where a tooth or teeth are missing. In between these two anchoring points is a “pontic,” an artificial (false) tooth that is custom-made to look and function just like a real tooth. After your bridge has been crafted, it will be securely cemented in place, looking and functioning like a natural tooth. 

When Would a Dental Bridge Be Necessary?

A dental bridge may also be recommended if your remaining teeth do not have enough stability or strength to support a dental implant. It can also help maintain facial structure while decreasing potential problems associated with an uneven bite, as well as reduce stress on the surrounding natural teeth. Ultimately, a dental bridge offers improved functionality and aesthetics for those with missing teeth.

What are the Benefits of Getting a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a treatment option for filling the gap created by a missing tooth. Not only does getting a dental bridge restore your smile and enhance your appearance, but it also provides several practical benefits that make it an ideal choice for replacing lost teeth. 

  • A bridge helps keep other teeth in the correct position, prevent the misalignment of neighboring teeth and improve bite mechanics, resulting in less strain on your jaw muscles. 
  • A dental bridge means there is no potential discomfort from the extra stress caused by spinal or opposing teeth moving into the open space. 
  • A dental bridge can also be relied upon to last many years if cared for properly.

Types of Dental Bridges

There are several different types of dental bridges available, each providing different benefits. 

  • The most common type is a traditional fixed bridge, which has two or more crowns and a filler tooth, all connected. These bridges are made of metal, porcelain fused to metal, or ceramics, with the crowns helping to keep them in place. 
  • Maryland dental bridges are another choice for those with missing front teeth; these bridges feature resin-bonded wings that bond to existing teeth and come in porcelain fused to metal or ceramic styles. 
  • Finally, an implant-supported bridge is similar to a traditional fixed bridge except it relies on dental implants instead of being cemented in place. 

No matter which type of bridge restoration is best for your condition, once in place, your smile is complete, with the problem of a missing tooth completely resolved.

How many visits will I need for a dental bridge?

Dental bridges in Lisle can usually be completed in two visits, one to prepare the adjacent teeth, and one to fit the bridge.

What is a dental bridge made of?

Its construction involves two abutment teeth – either a natural tooth or dental implants onto which crowns are placed. Custom-crafted tooth replacements are crafted to ensure a perfect color and shape match, and then affixed to the crowns to create a strong connection, and a durable, natural-looking restoration. As a bridge is secured and does not move like dentures, they provide a long-lasting solution for anyone missing one or more teeth and can help to preserve existing teeth by distributing points of stress evenly and reducing pressure on, for example, surrounding teeth.

How long will a dental bridge last?

A bridge is typically a long-lasting restoration, and with proper care, could last a lifetime. However, depending on your lifestyle, a bridge may require replacement after many years.
