At Dentistry for Life in Philadelphia dental bridges can be fabricated with a metal-ceramic combination or can be all porcelain or all metal.

The metal used can be an alloy of base metals such as cobalt and Chromium, high Noble/Noble metal alloy such as palladium, silver and gold.

Benefits of Dental Bridges:

Types of Bridges:

Traditional bridges: They are the most common form of bridges where there are anchor teeth on either side of the missing tooth

Cantilever bridges: Such bridges are used when there are teeth on only one side of the lost teeth.

Maryland bridges: They are made of porcelain or porcelain fused to metal. They have metal or porcelain wings on either side of the bridge that is bonded to your existing teeth, securing it in place.
