If you are missing one or more teeth, our dentist may recommend a dental bridge in Hagerstown, Maryland, to restore your oral health. Dental bridges are natural-looking, custom made dental appliances that can replace a section of missing teeth by being cemented onto the teeth or a dental implant on either side of a gap in your smile. Because they are custom made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between the upper and lower teeth.
There are several types of fixed (non-removable) dental bridges, including:
- Conventional fixed bridges
- Cantilever bridges
- Resin-bonded bridges
- Implant-supported bridges.
Dental bridges can be made from porcelain, zirconia, gold alloys or a combination of materials. Porcelain is a popular choice for dental bridges because its appearance is very similar to that of the natural teeth. Dr. Everett Eklund will help you determine which type of dental bridge and which material will best fit your personal dental needs and goals.
