Dental bridges are an essential restorative dentistry solution offered at DC Family Dental by Dr. Mayur Patel, designed to replace one or more missing teeth. These prosthetic devices are anchored to the natural teeth or dental implants adjacent to the gap, effectively restoring both function and appearance.

Benefits of Dental Bridges
Dental bridges provide numerous advantages, including:

  • Restored Functionality: Bridges enable patients to chew, speak and smile confidently, improving overall oral function.
  • Enhanced Aesthetics: They blend seamlessly with natural teeth, providing a natural and attractive appearance.
  • Prevented Teeth Shifting: Bridges prevent adjacent teeth from shifting into the gap, which can lead to bite problems and further dental issues.
  • Improved Oral Health: By filling the gap left by missing teeth, bridges help maintain the alignment and integrity of the remaining teeth.

Types of Dental Bridges
At our office, we offer several types of dental bridges tailored to meet your specific needs:

  • Traditional Bridges: Consist of one or more artificial teeth held in place by dental crowns cemented onto the adjacent teeth.
  • Cantilever Bridges: Used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth.
  • Maryland Bonded Bridges: Feature a metal or porcelain framework bonded to the back of the adjacent teeth.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges: Anchored to dental implants rather than natural teeth, providing a secure and durable solution.
