A dental bridge is a fixed (permanent) rehabilitation that restores missing teeth. Bridges mimic the look, shape, and function of natural teeth. Crowns are created to fill the area and anchored using healthy teeth on both sides of the gap.
They are also custom-made for every patient.
In more severe cases, a patient may need multiple dental bridges. This is called “full mouth rehabilitation.”

What Does a Dental Bridge Look Like?
A dental bridge is an artificial tooth called a pontic that anchors it to the neighbouring teeth. The pontic is designed to fit your mouth. Your dentist must recontour the anchoring teeth to maintain the Dental Bridge in place effectively.
Most dental bridges are made of porcelain. They are connected to a metal base for support.
Different bridges are made of all-ceramic or zirconium, a combination of porcelain and other similar materials.
Before fitting, your dentist will remove some structure from the abutment teeth. These are the supportive teeth on each side of the Bridge. The tooth structure removal required is the same for both the front and back teeth.
Dental Bridge: Step by Step Guide
Dental Bridge placement is split into multiple appointments:
During your initial consultation, your dentist will evaluate your suitability for dental bridge treatment. Good nominees for dental bridges are patients with healthy teeth on both sides of the gap you wish to fill. Suppose your dentist sees any underlying issues with the surrounding teeth that may evolve in the coming years. In that case, they may suggest a dental implant instead, as this form of dental procedure is not reliant on the presence of solid abutment teeth. Your dentist should run through the advantages of each treatment nevertheless and may need to take an X-ray to get a proper sense of which one is ideal for you.
Anesthesia & Tooth preparation
A local anaesthetic is applied during the first appointment to ensure comfort and relieve pain during the procedure.
Your dentist will design and prepare the abutment teeth. All abutment teeth (supporting teeth) are shaped like a dental crown. This means all enamel and any extra tooth structure are removed to make a clear route to the other tooth.
After the teeth are shaped, impressions are made and sent to our dental laboratory. This is where your custom dental bridge is created. While the permanent bridge is being made, your dentist will put a temporary bridge over the recently shaped teeth and gap.
Once the pontic is ready, you’ll come for the final appointment. Your dentist will extract the temporary bridge and clean the area underneath. A local anaesthetic will be applied before taking off the temporary bridge.
Your dentist will take x-rays of the dental bridge to ensure it fits correctly. Then the dental bridge and abutment teeth are bonded using special dental cement.
4 Types of Dental Bridges
There are four primary types of dental bridges known.
Traditional dental bridges are the most common choice of a dental bridges. They consist of ceramic, zirconium, porcelain fused to metal, or all-metal-like gold.
These bridges have an artificial tooth called a pontic. A dental crown keeps it in place on both sides.
Your dentist will prepare and shape the two abutment teeth next to the fake tooth during the process. This ensures that the two dental crowns fit correctly. Traditional bridges are durable, strong, and long-lasting with proper care. They typically only restore teeth (premolars and molars).
Cantilever bridges are comparable to traditional bridges, except they are anchored to one abutment tooth from one side. To keep a cantilever bridge, you must have one natural healthy tooth next to the missing tooth.
This kind of dental bridge is commonly used to fix front teeth. Cantilever bridges aren’t firm enough to replace molars (back teeth).
The Maryland bridge is the right option for those who do not wish to deal with the long-term effects of reshaping surrounding teeth. This involves using a pontic kept in place by a metal framework. Maryland dental bridges are porcelain and nearly the same color as your natural teeth. These bridges hold “wings” that glue to the neighboring teeth, which keep them stable. The wings can be porcelain instead of metal.
Less tooth preparation is essential for Maryland bridges because they bind to the rear side of your front teeth next to the missing tooth. Other kinds of dental bridges need additional tooth structure removal before fitting.
Maryland dental bridges are used to repair front teeth. They are not recommended to restore missing molars or canines. Canine teeth are critical to your bite, and Maryland bridges can move or slack easily.
Rather than a metal framework or dental crowns, implant-supported bridges are entirely backed by dental implants. This kind of dental bridge restores premolars and molars teeth.
Implant dental bridges are perfect for patients with at least three missing molars in a row.
When is a Dental Bridge Necessary?
Nearly 70 per cent of grown-ups (35-44) have lost at least one tooth to gum disease, an injury, decay, or a failed root canal.
Most dentists suggest dental bridges over implants if you already have current dental crowns on the abutment teeth. They may also advise a dental bridge if you can’t get implants for medical bases.
You might need a dental bridge if you lost a tooth or teeth to:
• Trauma or injury
• Gum disease
• Old age
