A dental bridge is a tooth replacement solution used to close the gap created by one or more missing teeth. The bridge is usually made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a prosthetic tooth that sits in between. Dental bridges may be recommended by a dental professional when the surrounding teeth could benefit from protective crown coverage. However, if the surrounding teeth are healthy, dentists will often recommend a single tooth implant as the preferred tooth replacement option. A single missing tooth can be replaced with an implant that won’t compromise the adjacent teeth.
The quality and longevity of bridgework will largely depend on the finesse of your dental surgeon. Many studies have shown that patients who have treatment completed by a Specialist Prosthodontist can benefit from longer-lasting crown and bridgework. At Aria Dental Perth, our principal is Dr Michael Zaninovich, one of Perth’s leading Prosthodontists. As a Specialist in dental crowns and bridges, Dr Zaninovich is known for his commitment to quality, and is dedicated to achieving highly aesthetic and functional results.
