    Dental Bridges

    What Are Dental Bridges

    If you have lost one or more adjacent teeth in an arch and want a fixed replacement, you may consider dental bridges. A dental bridge consists of two or more artificial teeth that close the missing tooth gap. It relies on the support of healthy teeth or dental implants on either side for stability and retention.

    At our St. John’s, NL, facility, we design dental bridges from durable dental materials, including metals, porcelain, or porcelain-fused-to-ceramic (PFM). We ensure that the bridge fits comfortably over your teeth and allows you to eat and speak more comfortably.

    Types of Dental Bridges We Offer In St. John’s, NL

    • Traditional Bridges
      It is the most common type that consists of two or more units secured in place by the support of adjacent natural teeth. The natural teeth on each side must be healthy and free of cavities to support the bridge.
    • Implant Bridges
      This type is ideal for those who do not have healthy natural teeth on one or both sides of the bridge. The implant posts fuse with the surrounding bone and offer a stable foundation.
    • Resin-Bonded Bridges
      Also known as Maryland bridges, this type of restoration uses porcelain or ceramic wings that attach to the back of the supporting teeth. It is a suitable option for replacing missing front teeth.
    • Cantilever Bridges
      This type resembles a traditional bridge, except it only has a supportive crown on one end. We recommend a cantilever bridge if you have a healthy tooth on just one side of the missing gap.

    What to Expect From the Treatment Procedure

    The process of dental bridges in St. John’s, NL, requires two dental appointments. During your initial consultation and oral evaluation, we will examine the missing tooth region to determine whether a dental bridge is the right option for you. If so, we will start by numbing the teeth with local anesthesia.

    For optimal bridge insertion, we will need to prepare the adjacent healthy teeth by trimming a thin enamel layer. We will then take dental impressions and send them to a lab. The fabrication process may take 10 to 14 days.

    During the second visit, we will fit the bridge over your teeth and make the necessary adjustments. Our team will ensure that it fits snugly and adapts to your natural bite.

    From the moment that I first met Dr. Chedella at his dentist chair, I knew I was in good hands. I had implants started in another country but not finished due to the pandemic. Dr. Chedella did a perfect job in completing the procedure. After waiting 20 months in limbo, I can't thank you enough Dr. Chedella.

    Nice friendly staff. The doctor gave practical, easy advice on every day changes I could make to help my TMJ problem - and it worked! One of the few specialists I’ve seen in years who I didn’t feel was trying to push an expensive device or unnecessary procedure on me - it was refreshing.
