Dental Bridges in Vancouver

If you have missing teeth and are looking for a solution to restore them, ask your dentist if a dental bridge is a suitable option for you. Dental bridges are created using dental crowns that sit on top of the teeth on either side of the gap. These crowns hold a fake tooth in place, filling the gap between the teeth.

Why Do I Need a Dental Bridge

Dental bridges are popular as they offer a natural-looking solution for missing teeth. They improve the aesthetic appearance of the mouth and restore the natural chewing function of the teeth. Filling the gap is also helpful to maintain the alignment of the surrounding teeth, preventing them from shifting out of place.

What Type of Dental Bridge Do I Need?

Dental crowns come in multiple forms depending on the tooth being replaced— when filling gaps between two teeth, your dentist will use a traditional bridge. If the gap is at the back of the mouth, they will use a cantilever bridge to attach only one crown instead. A Maryland bridge uses metal wings instead of crowns to hold the fake tooth in place. This type of bridge is commonly used when replacing teeth at the front of the mouth.
