Bridges can be made of different materials. One alternative are the ones which combine a metal base such as gold or metal base covered by porcelain, another one are those made up only of ceramics such as zirconium or alumina.
Our specialist will recommend the best option for you depending on the place where the bridge will be placed and the quantity and type of pieces which will be substituted.
The specialist should carry out dental attrition or occlusal wear on the pieces which will support the bridge and make a temporary bridge while the laboratory makes the new one.
One or several missing dental pieces
Patients with no periodontal problems
The bridges’ success depends on the follow up appointments and the dental cleaning carried out by the patient, in this case your dentist will recommend important cleaning accessories/gadgets.
This type of treatment should be checked at least every 6 months, since the pieces which support the bridge can suffer tooth decay or periodontal diseases or nerve problems.
Remember that the pieces which house the crowns that support the bridge should not have to suffer dental attrition or occlusal wear or reduce its size if the missing piece or pieces are replaced with dental implants.
