Affordable Alternatives to Dental Bridges

A dental bridge, otherwise known as a tooth bridge, is another alternative to tooth replacement when teeth are missing. Often consisting of crowns and fairly vigorous dental procedures, dental bridges require a substantial commitment. Most procedures require an individual to have the enamel sanded down from the neighbouring teeth to support the bridge.

With this in mind, there are four different types of dental bridge depending on the stress that the bridge will take in the bite. For example, stronger and more effective bridges will be needed for areas of high bite force such as molars, but these procedures are a heavier commitment and can be a burden.

What are they used for?

Although the obvious answer is within the name, there are several reasons as to why you may need a dental bridge procedure.

  • To restore your smile: With gaps in your smile, and with the surrounding tooth or teeth needing a little TLC you might feel the bridge will be ideal to restore portions of your smile at a time.
  • Maintain the shape of your face: Our jaw and dental profile plays a significant role in keeping our face a certain shape. As we grow older, our natural teeth will shift, changing the shape of our face.
  • Protecting your oral health: Bridges will be put into place to ensure that your bite is even. If your bite is uneven, your surrounding natural teeth could suffer.
  • Alternative to dental implants: Many people find the dental implant procedure too extreme and too costly. A bridge provides an alternative solution whilst avoiding the hefty costs and dental work.

What is the procedure?

Although bridges are fairly common in the world of oral health, the procedure itself can be unknown to many.

A dental bridge procedure isn’t as black and white as some other dental procedures and everybody may find themselves needing a different type of dental procedure. However, all dental bridges start with hefty dental preparations.

Dental Crown Bearing in mind that your dental bridge requires a crown to be fitted onto the surrounding natural teeth in order to support a dental bridge, you will need to undergo the typical crown procedure.

To enable your tooth to host a dental crown, your dental care professional will need to sand your natural tooth down significantly, shaping it to host a laboratory-crafted crown. With this in mind, you could be facing hefty and numerous dental procedures before you receive your bridge.

Dental Implants In some cases, the tooth decay of your surrounding teeth is too severe and would not be able to support a bridge. If this is the case, the next best solution would be to have a dental implant procedure that would provide more strength to your bridge.

The dental implant surgery is an extremely vigorous treatment that requires several dental visits. After a possible tooth extraction, the implant surgery starts with a screw being drilled into the jaw bone underneath the gum line. This screw then protrudes through the gum line where a false tooth can become the base structure for your new dental bridge.

What's the alternative?

At instasmile, we provide a simple yet effective fix for missing, cracked, chipped and discoloured teeth in a way that bridges can’t. With our clip on veneers, you do not have to commit to any vigorous dental procedures that shave away your enamel. No permanent commitments. No hefty costs. No trips to the dentist.

Types of dental bridge

  • Traditional Bridges One of the more effective bridges in regards to molars and areas of the arch with high bite force. The enamel will be removed from the natural tooth to make room for a crown which will be cemented over the top. This is a permanent decision as the crown will be needed for life to protect the tooth. Each tooth on either side of the gap will be required to undergo this procedure. This will ensure that the false tooth can be supported by the adjacent teeth when resting on the gum.

  • Cantilever Bridges Much like traditional bridges, the tooth will have to undergo an enamel removal procedure to make way for a crown. With the cantilever bridge, only one tooth will need to be stripped of enamel and crowned, however, this bridge can cause as many problems as it can solve. Such problems include cracks and fractures which can eventually lead to more trips to the dentist.

  • Maryland Bridges This dental bridge is a very stripped down and weaker version of the traditional bridge, however, it does not require as much dental commitment. The new tooth will latch onto the neighbouring teeth via melted metal or porcelain. Although this procedure is less permanent, it is much weaker than other bridges and shouldn’t be used for areas with high bite force.
