Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. We offer both bonded and traditional dental bridges at our Cupertino dental office to meet all of your dental needs and goals. Traditional bridges are anchored to the teeth adjacent to the gap through the use of two dental crowns, which are bonded to the artificial teeth. Traditional bridges are the most common type of dental bridge. Bonded bridges, which are also known as Maryland bonded bridges or resin-bonded bridges, are composed of plastic teeth and gums, supported by a metal framework. The metal wings on each side of the dental bridge are then bonded to the natural teeth. Our gentle dentist, Dr. Murray, may recommend a bonded or traditional dental bridge to:
- Restore lost facial volume
- Prevent the remaining teeth from shifting in the mouth
- Improve your ability to properly chew, speak, and eat
- Alleviate stress on the bite
- Enhance the appearance of your smile
Custom dental bridges are typically placed in just two comfortable visits to our dental office. If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to learn more about how a dental bridge can improve your smile, please call us today at Murray Dental Care. We are committed to improving your smile!
