What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge allows patients with one or more missing teeth to enjoy a complete smile once again. Missing teeth are known for causing many problems, especially as it pertains to eating and speaking. Not to mention, the potential shifting of natural teeth as well as weakening of the jawbone over time. Having a dental bridge created and secured into place is a positive and beneficial way to improve the aesthetics and overall health of an individual’s smile.
Types of Dental Bridges
You’ll first want to schedule a consultation with our team to determine the best approach for addressing your missing teeth. Once we’ve had a chance to look over your dental history and assess your smile, we can walk you through the types of dental bridges you can consider.
Traditional Dental Bridge
Traditional dental bridges use healthy adjacent teeth as anchors. These teeth must be prepped to ensure a proper fit when the bridge is put into place. This process involves removing a small amount of the enamel. Lab technicians will fuse multiple dental crowns to create what looks to be a bridge. When ready for placement, the outer crowns fit over the adjacent, anchoring teeth while the interior crowns rest on top of the gums.
If a patient prefers a more stable solution for rebuilding their smile, an implant bridge can be created and attached to two or more implants, which are surgically placed into the jawbone. This tooth-replacement option will not only help preserve any remaining natural teeth, but the metal posts will serve as your new roots, promoting stronger and healthier bone growth in the jaw. Furthermore, your results can potentially last several decades to a lifetime with proper care!

With modern advancements in dental technology, you can expect to enjoy numerous benefits with dental bridges, including:
