Dental Bridge

If you are missing teeth due to trauma, gum disease, or untreated cavities, you may struggle to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. A dental bridge is a completely customized set of prosthetic teeth that fills the gap in your smile and provides lasting comfort.

Why is a dental bridge the solution for me?

A bridge renews your ability to chew and speak properly:  A bridge not only immediately improves your quality of life, but also prevents surrounding teeth from shifting. This lowers your risk of misalignment in the future.

Bridges are custom-made to blend with your natural teeth:  Your dentist can create a stunning bridge that fits seamlessly into your smile and complements your unique facial features.

A bridge can be supported by dental implants: If you choose an implant-supported restoration, your healthy teeth will not need to be altered to support a bridge. 


 

What is involved in fabricating a dental bridge?

Traditional Bridge

  • Your dentist will resize your surrounding teeth to make room for your dental bridge and the supporting dental crowns.

  • He or she will then take impressions of your smile to design a bridge that looks and feels very natural for years to come.

  • Your impressions will be sent to a lab, where a skilled technician will create your custom bridge.

  • Once your dental bridge is ready for placement, your dentist will secure it in place using dental cement.

Implant-supported Bridge

  • Your dentist will perform dental implant surgery.

  • Four to six months later, your dentist will place your abutments and take impressions of your smile.

  • Your impressions will be sent to a trusted lab.

  • When your permanent bridge is ready, your dentist will secure it to your dental implants.
