Dental Bridges in Chicago's Lakeview & South Loop

dental bridges from chicago dentist in 60657 and 60605A bridge is a tooth replacement alternative to implants. The teeth on either side of the space are covered with crowns and a false tooth is suspended between them. The only downside to a bridge is that it requires more home maintenance and for some can be more difficult to keep clean.

Instead of placing a bridge made of porcelain with a metal base, which, years later, can often result in unsightly dark lines at the gum line,
Art of Modern Dentistry can now restore your smile with an all-porcelain bridge.

An all-porcelain bridge still uses adjacent teeth for support, but will not show a dark line where the bridge meets the gums. Many all-porcelain bridges can be bonded in place, which gives a tighter seal and more accurate fit.

All-Porcelain Bridges

Tooth-colored bridges used to be made only of porcelain and metal. But with the new technology available today, they can be made entirely of porcelain.

To have enough strength to withstand biting forces, porcelain bridges used to be built upon a metal core. Unfortunately, this created a noticeable dark line at the edge of the bridge.

New breakthroughs in adhesives and stronger porcelain materials now make it possible to create bridges entirely from porcelain. All-porcelain bridges maintain a translucency that makes them difficult to tell from real teeth.

Without metal, the dark line at the edge of the gums is eliminated. This allows the edge of the bridge to be placed above the gum line, which is healthier for your teeth and gums.

When you want to improve your smile, an all-porcelain bridge is an excellent choice! -Fillings

Alternatives to Bridges

When you’re missing one or more teeth, you have several options:

  • Delay treatment
  • Implants
  • Partial dentures
  • Space maintainer

Delaying treatment is the least desirable option. Things will only get worse.

An implant with a crown might be a good choice. Treatment time is much longer, but your dentist wouldn’t have to modify the teeth next to the space.

A partial denture could work well if several teeth are missing throughout the mouth. It fills in the spaces and restores your natural bite.

A space maintainer is used as a temporary solution when a child loses a tooth. It keeps the teeth from shifting as it holds a space for the emerging permanent teeth.
