A dental bridge is used to “bridge” a gap or gaps due to missing teeth. Traditional dental bridges are held in place with two porcelain crowns on either side of the gap. Dental implants can also be used to anchor the dental bridge for added security. Missing teeth affect how you speak and chew so getting a dental bridge can help improve these abilities. At New Look Dental, we offer several different types of dental bridges in West Kelowna, including:
Traditional bridges utilize dental crowns on either side of the gap in your smile to anchor your dental bridge. They are ideal for patients who have natural teeth on both sides of your gap. In order for the crown to fit and attach properly to your natural teeth, your dentist will remove some enamel.
Cantilever bridges are most commonly used for gaps with natural teeth on just one side. These bridges typically use a crown to anchor the bridge.
Implant-supported bridges can be used when a client is missing one or more teeth. Rather than using crowns or frameworks to anchor the bridges, this option is supported by dental implants. Implants are like artificial tooth roots that are fused to your jawbone to support artificial teeth.
Dental crowns, sometimes called dental caps, are placed over the visible portion of your natural teeth to enhance their look and strength. If your tooth or teeth are discoloured, chipped, cracked, misshapen or worn down, a dental crown can help restore it.
Similar to crowns, veneers are used when natural teeth are discoloured, worn down, chipped or misaligned. A veneer is a very thin, custom-made shell that is placed over the surface of your tooth to improve its look. They are made from tooth-coloured materials like porcelain or resin in order to blend in with the rest of your teeth.
