3 Dental Bridge Types To Restore Your Smile
Dental bridges can be used to fix gaps in your smile if you have missing teeth. A dental bridge is an artificial tooth, referred to as a pontic, held in place by abutment teeth on each side of the gap. Pontics can be made of a variety of materials, including gold, alloys, or a mix of these materials, but they are most commonly made of porcelain to blend in with your natural teeth aesthetically.
With bridges, your smile will be restored, as well as your ability to chew and speak properly. Your face’s, especially your mouth’s, shape will be maintained due to the lips now being supported. Your other teeth will also benefit from bridges being installed, by having biting force now being evenly distributed and ensured that they do not start to move out of place.
A fake tooth is wedged between two crowns in this most common dental bridge. The fake tooth will next be secured in place by crowns fitted to the teeth on the left and right sides of the gap. This approach also works if there are multiple missing teeth. Traditional bridges are strong and long-lasting, but they require considerable enamel loss on the surrounding teeth to support the crown. Traditional bridges can cost anywhere from RM6,000 to RM20,000.
Cantilever bridges are comparable to regular bridges in that the fake tooth is only linked to one crown rather than two. If there is only one neighbouring tooth beside the lost tooth, this procedure will work. This situation is uncommon, and cantilever bridges are also less secure, thus they are rarely employed. A cantilever bridge will set you back around RM4,000.
Implant-supported bridges are typically utilised when multiple teeth are lost. Implants are surgically implanted into the gums, and the bridge is joined to them in a subsequent treatment. This dental bridge is the most safe and comfortable, and it does not necessitate the crowning of neighbouring healthy teeth. The cost of an implant-supported bridge normally starts at RM1,500.
Our dentist will propose the most suitable bridge type upon evaluation of your dental condition, and will review the advantages, cost and care methods with you. Make an appointment with our dentists today to restore the great smile you deserve.

I had my dental implant surgery done at Beverly Wilshire Dental Clinic with Datin Dr Norma Abd Jalil. I am still astonished at how comfortable the whole procedure was. Not only was it totally painless (honestly!), from start to finish I was given clear information about the procedure and the pricing, all in a very relaxed environment. I cannot recommend the clinic and Datin Dr Norma Abd Jalil highly enough.
While visiting KL, I broke a veneer on my front tooth that required immediate replacement. I found Beverly Wilshire Dental online and scheduled an appointment. They were able to see me the next day and being from North America I was unsure of what to expect. I can gladly report that my experience and the work performed was excellent. My highest compliments to Dr. Tan Ying Yin for her professionalism and for the quality of her work.
I went for a routine scaling and teeth cleaning at this place. I must say, Dr. Tan Ying Yin is very professional and friendly. She explained the entire procedure and was constantly checking if everything was okay throughout the entire procedure. I would definitely recommend this clinic. Thank you Dr. for the excellent and very professional service! 5-stars for sure!

Great skill. I had serious teeth alignment issue and my doctor managed to fix it nicely!
Amazing dental centre, amazing people, doctors, and dentists. I took appointment and started my veneer treatment and I was happy with their hygiene standards and I felt so comfortable with the great team there and of course special thanks to Dr Tan and her professional team for answering all my questions and been always present and accommodating.
My treatment was very smooth and I didn’t feel any pain even when they injected me with the needle. it was definitely a great experience and would definitely keep treating my teeth there.
Appointment was right on time, service from the attendants was friendly in total job well done, my teeth shines brighter and I feel better in my mouth.
Very comfortable and friendly. no pain at all for my root canal.
Our 1st visit to the dental centre for my daughter having gum bleeding issue. The appointment arrangement was effortless. I just dropped them a message via Google and they responded quickly in the morning. On the day, the service is cordial. My daughter loves it.
I had a perfect uncomplicated treatment. After another dentist told me that I have to get 6 holes fixed and at least one root treatment done I was looking for another opinion and it was the best decision I've ever made! Had my holes fixed in a short time and happy with the result.
I'm extremely happy with my teeth after having braces done here. Smiling away with confidence. Thanks Beverly Wilshire Dental. Will recommend surely to any searching for dental services. Kudos!!
Easy, considerate staff and doctors. We are international patients and came for a cleaning and 2nd opinion. Our dentist in Hong Kong recommended 2 more crowns, but this dentist saw no issues and only recommended a couple cosmetic options, but did not press for us to get them. Our visit was efficient.
Great team and excellent customer service, I did my teeth whitening using Zoom technology. Very happy with the results and the price was surprisingly very affordable. Keep up the good work guys.
Brought both my kids 2.5year and 7 year for their first appointment. The staff are very nice. Dr was very gentle and understanding. It was a pleasant first experience for them.
