What is a Bridge Tooth and How is it Made?

Our blog

If some of the teeth that make up your smile are missing or lost, this can lead to both aesthetic and functional issues. Fortunately, bridge teeth provide an effective solution to address such problems. In this blog post, we will discuss what bridge teeth are, how they are made, and their advantages.

What is a Bridge Tooth?

A bridge tooth is a prosthesis used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of two main components: artificial teeth (pontics) and the supporting teeth that hold these teeth in place (abutment teeth). The bridge teeth are placed over the supporting teeth and fill the gaps left by missing teeth.

How is a Bridge Tooth Made?

  • Examination and Planning: Before starting the bridge tooth application, the dentist evaluates the missing teeth and surrounding tissues. A treatment plan is created, and preparations for the teeth begin.
  • Preparation Process: The enamel part on the supporting teeth is removed, and temporary covering is placed over them. This step prepares the abutment teeth to support the bridge.
  • Measurements: Measurements of the abutment teeth and missing teeth are taken. These measurements are sent to the laboratory, where the bridge tooth is custom-made.
  • Placement of the Bridge Tooth: Once the bridge tooth is prepared, the dentist places it over the abutment teeth. Proper connections between the bridge teeth and abutment teeth are established.
  • Final Touches: Final touches are made to ensure that the bridge tooth fits in place and conforms to the jaw structure. Finally, the color and appearance of the bridge tooth are adjusted to match natural teeth.

Advantages of a Bridge Tooth:

  • Quickly and effectively fills the spaces left by missing teeth.
  • Restores dental functions and chewing ability.
  • Provides an aesthetic smile and can enhance facial features.
  • Prevents displacement of adjacent teeth.
