Dental bridge is a dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants. 

Type of Bridge

  • Traditional bridges involve creating a crown for the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth, with a pontic in between. Traditional bridges are the most common type of bridge and are made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.

  • Cantilever bridges are used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth.

  • Maryland bonded bridges (also called a resin-bonded bridge or a Maryland bridge) are made of plastic teeth and gums supported by a metal framework. Metal wings on each side of the bridge are bonded to your existing teeth.
