¿How does a dental bridge work?

A dental bridge is a structure comprised of three or more artificial teeth, of which one or more are pontics or teeth replacing the missing ones, and a dental crown attached to each end, bonded to one of the natural remaining teeth to support them.

Bridges are designed using impressions taken of a patient’s smile. Dr. Aguirre prepares the pillar teeth to work as anchors for the crowns to fit the bridge into place.

¿Do the dental bridge work like natural teeth?

Once the structure is fixed, the dental bridge will function like natural teeth, allowing you to eat and smile with confidence.

¿Do dental bridges look like natural teeth?

In the last years in our practice we have been able to make amazing restorations thanks to the newest materials we have available for the construction of dental bridges like Zirconium and other ceramic compounds.

The dental bridge will look close to the natural appearance, aiming to match your natural teeth, to achieve a refreshed and healthier appearance.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

¿What are the advantages of dental bridges?

A dental bridge is a system to replace lost teeth, in a manner that it is permanently attached to the adjacent natural teeth.

Fixed dental bridges are very safe and proven efficacious for decades.

Is very important to replace all missing teeth as soon as possible to prevent remaining teeth from shifting and to deter additional tooth loss. When permanent teeth shift, problems start to unfold: malocclusion, TMJ/TMD, bruxism, and bone loss in the jaw.  Your overall facial structure will begin to change and sag, causing premature aging.

Advantages of dental bridges:

  • Safe and proven technique
  • More youthful appearance
  • Improved chewing ability
  • Balance to your bite
  • Enhanced smile
  • Self-confidence improvement
  • Preservation of supporting tissues (bone and gums)

How are Bridges Constructed?

¿What materials are dental bridges built from?

Dental bridges are made of a series of different materials: ceramic, zirconia, or porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM). At dental Medellin, Dr. Aguirre will help you determine which material is best for your personal oral needs.

  • Zirconia: One of the latest materials used for dental bridges. Is a white, visually appealing ceramic is biocompatible and very resilient. Zirconia is the strongest ceramic and hardest material used in dentistry, characteristics that allow us to construct strong dental bridges with extraordinary aesthetics.
  • E-Max Bridges: These all-ceramic bridges are created from a block of lithium disilicate ceramic, a high-quality ceramic recommended for its durability and natural color.
  • Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM): Is a material combination used for decades. A metal base structure is fused to a porcelain veneer in a high heat oven to create PFM bridges. The metal provides strong density and strength, while the porcelain adds the white, tooth-like appearance most suitable for front teeth restorations. Although strong and offering fine aesthetics, the newest zirconia and Lithium disilicate bridges provide a much better result in achieving a natural appearance.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Dental Bridge?

Most patients with missing teeth qualify for a dental bridge. If a patient has a gap produced by extracted, missing or fractured teeth, flanked by strong enough natural teeth to support the bridge, is very possible to give him/her a solution by constructing a dental bridge in the latest materials.

What are dental crowns ?

Dental Crown Medellin dentis
Dental Crown Medellin dentis

Dental crowns (or caps) are dental restorations that are placed over a tooth when conservative restorations are insufficient to restore form and function. A dental bridge serves to replace a missing tooth or teeth. One type of dental bridge consists of dental crowns placed on either side of the missing tooth to connect the replacement tooth or teeth to them. Another type of dental bridge consists of the replacement tooth attached to the adjacent teeth with wing-like appendages. Dental bridges can also be supported by dental implants. Dental crowns and bridges can be made entirely of tooth-colored material, metal, or a combination to provide optimal aesthetics. Some metal-free dental crowns and bridges incorporate stress-bearing materials to enhance their strength and wear-resistance.

When is a  dental crown required?

Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain, or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term solution.

Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to  cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.

Is A Dental Crown Right For Me?

A dental crown has many advantages. Dental crowns address aesthetic needs, restore tooth function, and enhance the overall health of your mouth. In cases where teeth have large broken down fillings, a dental crown can protect and preserve the remaining natural tooth. To enhance your smile, metal-free, tooth colored, porcelain crowns can also replace older metal or metal with dental porcelain crowns. Porcelain crowns have translucent qualities that, with the help of an expert cosmetic dentist professionals like Dr. Aguirre at dental Medellín,  can look just like natural teeth. Following root canal therapy, a dental crown is typically placed over the remaining tooth structure to preserve aesthetics and tooth function.

How long does it take to make a dental crown?

Dental Crown Medellin The complete dental porcelain crown procedute  requires at least three visits to our office. In the first appointment we remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.

Some people talk about restorative dentistry when referring to oral rehabilitation.

Dentists use techniques of oral rehabilitation or restorative dentistry  to restore the integrity of teeth.   However, when only the damaged teeth in any mouth are restored, that too could be defined as an oral rehabilitation. The advent of esthetic dentistry has encouraged oral rehabilitation for esthetic reasons only. We believe that such restorative dentistry, as part of oral rehabilitations should be preceded by thorough informed consent and education about other, more conservative, treatment alternatives.

Oral Rehabilitation or restorative dentistry refers to restoring the natural dentition, integrating several dental specialties, mostly prosthodontics but also periodontics, Cosmetic and Restorative dentistry.

The objective of oral rehabilitation or restorative dentistry is to achieve the closest to optimal conditions in terms of function, anatomy, comfort and esthetics.

Patients should be thoroughly informed of all possible alternatives of treatment to make the best choice in regard to the dental care they are about to receive. In many cases, large scale dental processes in oral rehabilitation are not required, and may require frequent re-treatment at significant cost. Qualified specialists, experienced dentists with a deep understanding of the biological, mechanical, and scientific concepts involved, must offer the patient the information about treatment implications, levels of oral rehabilitation -. restorative dentistry and costs.

DENTAL BRIDGE MEDELLIN, CROWN AND DENTAL BRIDGE

What’s a dental bridge

Dental bridge is a rigid structure consisting of a series of dental crowns in a sequence resembling that of the natural teeth. In dental bridge design we can distinguish two different situations:

  1. When we face the problem of replacing missing teeth. We may need to replace one or more missing teeth in a segment, but have teeth remaining on both sides of the space left by the missing teeth.
  2. When we have the natural teeth but their integrity has been compromised by different factors.

When we have the second situation, where several adjacent teeth need to be treated, due to fracture, chips, decay, deterred restorations, or abrasion, we have the option of designing a dental bridge to be placed over all the teeth involved, restoring their shape, size, integrity, function and esthetics.

Para coronas dentales en porcelana Medellín en español aqui: > 

Another case where we can choose a dental bridge presents when a tooth needs to be replaced, either the tooth is missing or it is present but compromised beyond the possibility of resolution for a pathology of the surrounding bone tissue, root fracture, or damage occurred within the pulp tissue of the tooth that can’t be managed through a root canal treatment, among other problems.

If the tooth´s prognosis leads to extraction, and it is not possible to place a dental implant, then we have the option to consider to use a dental bridge to replace the extracted tooth.  This new tooth which will be a dental porcelain crown will be supported by the two adjacent teeth, one on each side.

A dental bridge used in this situation will be the second option if conditions for a dental implant are favorable. The downside to this alternative is that two teeth must be prepared to serve as pillars for the replacing crown. On the other hand, the positive aspects are important: esthetic results can be excellent, the structure will be perfectly functional, time of treatment process is significantly less, and costs will be also much lower.

How does a dental bridge works.

Teeth that will serve as pillars to support the missing tooth (teeth) are prepared by removing an external layer of dental tissue in order to give room for the crown that will be fitted on it. This procedure must follow a specific shape in the design to achieve the most accurate adaptation of the dental bridge to the margins of the gum line and the tooth root/crown contour.

After we have prepared the pillar teeth on both sides of the space left by the missing tooth, a dental impression is taken to copy the exact details of the dental and gum anatomy to proceed with the design of a structure that will fit restoring the complete shape, function and esthetic characteristics of the dental arch.

The impression is sent to the dental technician to construct the dental bridge on two or three phases.  The dental bridge constructed to replace the missing teeth, is placed in the space where we find missing teeth, and supported by the adjacent remaining teeth.

The dental bridge is placed and permanently bonded to the pillar teeth by a dental cement. The dental bridge is now part of your denture, so hygiene must be very meticulous to maintain it in the best condition.

Treatment steps in dental bridge

The time required to complete a dental crown or bridge is about 5 days for a simple crown to two weeks for a dental bridge, depending on the individual circumstances and conditions.

In our dental practice we rely on a top quality laboratory so the completion time of a dental bridge treatment can be done in minimum time of four days for a single crown and 7 to 12 days for a fixed dental bridge consisting of several teeth.

The process consists of several steps:

The first step to determine the need for a dental bridge as a solution for a patient is to a detailed clinical examination including x rays or the area.

In dental Medellin We believe that the decision for a dental treatment must be the agreed result of a close understanding by the patient as a person with specific needs, of the implications, the conditions and all the possible options applicable to each individual case.

Preparation of the involved teeth with local anesthesia (May I add carefully applied), guaranteeing the dental procedure will be absolutely painless.

The tooth is then prepared to fit the dental crown as part of the dental bridge that we will design.

Dental impression. We then proceed to take a mold with the imprint, a detailed copy of the prepared teeth and surrounding area are using a silicon putty contained in a metal tray.  This impression is sent out to the dental laboratory for the technician to design and create the individual dental bridge with the needed characteristics to fill the gap left by the missing teeth.

The prepared teeth are then covered and protected by a temporary crown in acrylic, for the days the process takes; this way we cover the esthetic need for the time, and allow for their easy removal during the tests carried out in a following appointment, to ensure the accurate adjustment of the structure until it is finished.

The internal structure of the crown or fixed dental bridge is tried to ensure accurate fit and adaptation to the tissues.

We then determine the closest shade of the natural teeth to make the dental bridge match as close as possible the appearance of the surrounding natural teeth to select the porcelain used to create the dental crown or dental bridge.

The final test is done in mouth, checking out occlusion or biting contacts to make the proper adjustments.

Finally, the dental crown or dental bridge is seat and permanently bonded to the prepared teeth, using a dental cementing material.

The dental rehabilitation with permanent dental crowns or fixed porcelain dental bridges can offer patients a natural aesthetic appearance and normal function.

How long does a dental bridge last

A dental crown or dental bridge constructed with the high quality latest porcelain materials of today, when correctly designed, built and adjusted can last decades.

An essential factor to determine the good condition of the dental bridge over time is hygiene. A conscious oral hygiene routine is mandatory to keep the gum, bone and tooth tissues healthy guaranteeing the solidness of the base for the dental bridge and crowns.
