Maryland bridge at SO Dental Surgery Chatswood
A Maryland bridge is a treatment option for replacing a missing tooth with a porcelain tooth with metallic wings. This bridge technique was first developed at the University of Maryland, and this is where it gets the name.
An original Maryland bridge consists of a metal framework with a porcelain tooth baked on to the front of the framework. The framework then ends up as a false porcelain tooth with two metal wings on the side. The wings are then bonded to the back sides of the neighbouring teeth.
At So Dental Surgery, we use CAD CAM technology to fabricate ‘high tensile strength emax’ wings (ceramic wings instead of the metal framework) delivering an aesthetic Maryland bridge in one single appointment.
