If you lost one or more teeth, you will notice a difference in smiling, chewing and phonetics. There are different options to help restore your smile that Vancouver Dental Care would be happy to offer.
In addition to implants or a removable partial denture or a bridge may be an available option that should be discussed with your clinician.
Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks like teeth, and literally fills the gap where one or more teeth may have been. We can perform the restoration that can be made from different materials such as gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials and is attached onto supporting teeth.
Unlike a removable partial denture, which you can take it out and put in, a fixed bridge can only be removed at the dental office.
What are the benefits of a Dental Bridge?
- Long term replacement option for replacing missing teeth
- Once the bridge is prepared it is attached to adjacent teeth
- It prevents surrounding teeth from moving or drifting
- It requires less time to complete than an implants
