Dental Bridge

If you are missing teeth consider a dental bridge

A dental bridge is used when your natural teeth surround a missing tooth or gap on both sides. Dental bridges are often a less expensive alternative to dental implants for teeth replacement. These bridges consist of one or more teeth that are held in place by two abutment teeth. “Abutment teeth” are natural teeth that are given dental crowns to support the fake teeth between them. It typically requires multiple appointments to complete the process.

During your first appointment, the doctor will take an impression of your teeth, which will be used to craft your permanent bridge. The temporary bridge is placed while your permanent restoration is being constructed by a dental laboratory.

At a subsequent appointment, the temporary bridge is removed, and the permanent bridge is fitted and attached to your teeth. Once completed, the area is restored to optimal function and appearance.

Who is a Candidate for a Dental Bridge

Dental Bridges

If you have one or more missing teeth, bridges are a great alternative to improve your smile. Dental bridges fill in the gaps, or bridge the gap, for our patients with missing teeth in a safe, natural-looking way. Bridges are milled to fit precisely between healthy teeth with one or more custom created crowns attached to the bridge. If you have an older bridge, we may recommend having it replaced as it shows signs of wear.

The bridge is affixed to the healthy teeth so that the crown(s) in the middle replaces the missing tooth. The result is a beautiful smile and healthy mouth, built to last!

What Happens During

Dental Bridges

We begin with a localized anesthetic to numb the area that is being treated. We then file down the two surrounding teeth to make more than enough room for the bridge. Impressions are taken and used to craft the bridge that will be made. You’ll come in for a second visit to have the permanent bridge placed. This is done quickly and easily, and we’ll adjust the bite and fit of the bridge before you leave the office. With proper care and oral hygiene, you can expect your bridge to last for many years.
