Dental Bridges in Brunswick, GA

Are you missing one or more teeth? Looking for a practical and long-lasting tooth replacement option? Consider a Dental Bridge.

Dental bridges have various advantages. Cosmetic dentists use them to address a range of oral health issues but mainly to replace missing teeth. A porcelain fixed bridge replaces a missing tooth or teeth by using the surrounding healthy teeth as a foundation, essentially creating a “bridge” between the remaining teeth and the missing teeth.

What is a Dental Bridge?

When a patient has one or more missing teeth, they have several tooth replacement options, one of the most popular being a dental bridge. A bridge is a natural-looking porcelain prosthetic that fills in the gap left behind by a missing tooth or teeth. Once in place, the bridge looks and functions just like natural teeth do and will last for many years.

Dental bridges come in different styles to meet different needs:

  • A traditional bridge consists of a prosthetic tooth or teeth supported by crowns on either side. The crowns are cemented onto the healthy teeth on each side of the gap, leaving the prosthetic to fill in the space and creating a strong bond that will keep the bridge firmly in place even after years of use.
  • A cantilever bridge is very similar but only uses one crown to hold it in place.
  • A Maryland bridge stays in place with a metal or porcelain framework that is bonded to the backs of the supporting teeth.
  • An implant-supported bridge attaches to dental implants and does not rely on crowns to stay in place.

After a thorough examination of your teeth and mouth, Dr. Britt will determine which type of dental bridge will be best for your particular situation.

Why Get a Dental Bridge?

Living with missing teeth can cause significant problems for your overall oral health. For example, over time, your bite pressure will shift to other parts of your mouth to compensate for the inability to chew efficiently in the area of the missing tooth. This can cause the neighboring teeth to shift out of alignment, resulting in pain, infection, gum disease, and more problems down the road.

  • Enhance your smile

  • Alleviate your pain
