Those who have always been embarrassed with their smiles can always consider cosmetic dentistry procedures, like dental bridges, to achieve better-looking pearly whites. Normally, dental bridges are attached to replace a missing tooth or teeth. The abutment are two or more anchoring teeth placed in the middle of the bridge, with the adjacent teeth covered in crowns.
Types Of Dental Bridges
Generally, there are three main types of dental bridges, namely traditional, cantilever and Maryland bonded bridges.
Traditional bridges are the most common type used by a Temecula dentist. These are typically made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramics and implanted on either side of the missing tooth, with a pontic in between. Traditional bridges are typically recommended for those who still have healthy dental structures surrounding the diseased teeth.
