The definition of a bridge is a connection or link between two permanent structures. A dental bridge attaches restorative teeth to the natural teeth on either side of the gap. The bridge acts as your new teeth and both closes the gap as well as restoring your smile. Bridges are usually made of metal or gold foundations with porcelain fused to them. This construction allows your bridge to support normal mouth functions.
There are three main types of dental bridges: Traditional, cantilever, and Maryland Bonded.
- Traditional bridges use a pontic between the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth, with a crown on the tooth or implant. Traditional bridges are the most common variety and are usually made of either ceramics or metal with porcelain fused to them.
- When there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing teeth or tooth, it is appropriate to use cantilever bridges.
- Maryland bonded bridges which are also known as a resin-bonded bridge or a Maryland bridge, are made of porcelain teeth and gums with a metal framework support. On each side of the bridge, your existing teeth are bonded to metal wings.
