At Dr. Sanjay Kalra’s Multispeciality Dental Clinic, where we’re dedicated to renewing your smile and confidence through our Dental Bridge service. If you have one or more missing teeth, a dental bridge could be the perfect solution to restore function, aesthetics, and your overall oral health.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a fixed prosthetic device used to bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. It consists of artificial teeth, known as pontics, which are anchored in place by adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. Dental bridges are custom-made to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth, providing a seamless and natural-looking result.

Different types of Dental Bridges offered by our clinic:

Traditional Dental Bridges –

Traditional dental bridges are the most common type and consist of one or more pontics anchored in place by dental crowns placed on the adjacent natural teeth. This method is ideal for patients with strong, healthy teeth adjacent to the gap.

Cantilever Bridges –

Cantilever bridges are similar to traditional bridges but are anchored in place by a dental crown on only one adjacent tooth. This type of bridge is typically used when there is only one healthy tooth next to the gap.

Maryland Bridges –

Maryland bridges, also known as resin-bonded bridges, use metal or porcelain framework bonded to the back of adjacent teeth with resin. This conservative option is suitable for replacing front teeth and requires minimal alteration of the adjacent teeth.

Types of Materials used for Dental Bridges:

Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth and are made from various materials, each offering unique benefits. One common type is porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) bridges, which combine the strength of metal with the aesthetic appeal of porcelain. These bridges are durable and can withstand biting and chewing forces. Another popular option is zirconia bridges, which are known for their strength and natural appearance. Zirconia bridges are highly biocompatible, making them suitable for patients with metal allergies. They are also resistant to chipping and cracking, offering long-lasting results. Both types of bridges can be customized to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, providing a seamless and natural-looking smile.
