If you have missing teeth, including front teeth, a dental bridge can help restore the look and function of your teeth. It bridges the gap where the missing tooth is.
If you have one or more missing teeth, a dental bridge can fill the gap with one or more artificial (false) teeth. A bridge is typically made of crowns on either side of the missing tooth or teeth supporting the pontic (false tooth) and is cemented in place.
The dentist prepares the abutment teeth adjacent to the gap of the missing teeth.
The doctor determines the shape and size of the teeth to suit the size of the crowns, by removing the layer that covers the teeth called enamel, then the doctor identifies the shape to be implemented for the artificial teeth that have the entire dental bridge, including the false teeth and crowns.
Send the information to the lab, which will carry out the manufacturing process.
However, when the manufacturing process takes place, the doctor installs a temporary dental bridge to protect the jaw and gums from infections and pollution.
The doctor uses a local anesthetic to make the patient feel more comfortable.
Removing the temporary bridge and placing the permanent bridge made of porcelain or any other metal.
The dentist adjusts the bridge to match the shape and size of the teeth in the jaw.
There may be further visits to maintain and ensure the bridge is suitable for the mouth.
in a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 7 days. However, the treatment process of implant supported bridges is different.
The average price of a metal-supported dental bridge consisting of 3 teeth in Turkey is 400-450 Euros.
In Turkey, the average price of a zirconium supported bridge consisting of 3 teeth is 520-580 Euros
This bridge is the most common. It has two or more crowns and a filler tooth or teeth that are all connected. The crowns keep the bridge in place. Traditional bridges are made of metal, porcelain fused to metal, or ceramics.
It is considered the best choice in the manufacture of dental bridges due to its pressure tolerance and the fact that it is difficult to break or damage.
It consists of zirconium oxide, and it is one of the types of ceramics intended for dental implants.
It is distinguished by its hardness and it is perfectly consistent with the shape and color of natural teeth, and this ensures that the body will not have any negative reaction to the bridge, making it the best choice for those who suffer from metal sensitivity.
Metal supported porcelain crowns have been used in dentistry for many years, and are durable and constructed of a metal alloy cap coated with a porcelain finish. Metal supported porcelain crowns are designed in a laboratory environment.
The quality of the metal supported porcelain crown depends on their manufacture, and if poorly made may look unnatural and may not have an aesthetic appeal.

Production differences creates the price difference between these two materials. Zirconium is more expensive to produce because it needs higher technological infrastructures.
This bridge is similar to a “traditional fixed bridge” but instead of being cemented in place to teeth, it is held in place by implants.
In this bridge type, the pontic connects to only one abutment tooth. This can sometimes be an option for people who have teeth on only one side of the gap.
You may have this type of bridge if you have missing front teeth. It’s made of porcelain fused to metal or ceramic teeth, supported by a framework. Wings on each side of the bridge bond to your existing teeth.
A dental bridge can:
Help your bite.
Prevent remaining teeth from moving out of place.
Restore your ability to chew and speak.
Restore your smile.
Dental bridges can last at least five to seven years. With good oral hygiene and regular professional cleanings, the bridge may last more than 10 years.
The success of the dental bridge depends on the health and strength of the remaining teeth. With a bridge, it’s especially important to prevent tooth decay and gum disease that can lead to tooth loss. For proper tooth and gum care, you should:
Brush twice a day and floss daily:A dental professional can show you the right way to brush and floss. You will probably use a special type of floss called a threader that lets you slide the floss between the bridge and your gum.
Get regular professional cleanings:Seeing a dental provider regularly can help detect problems early, when treatment is more successful.
Eat a balanced diet:Include plenty of fruits, vegetables and fiber and try to limit chewy, fibrous foods like some meats.
In many cases, loose bridges may be quickly and simply removed and fixed, allowing your dentist to recement the bridge. In some cases the dentist will have to drill the bridge out and make a new one. What your dentist decides to do will depend on the reason the bridge failed, how well it now adheres to the teeth it is supporting, the integrity of those teeth, and the desired outcome.
