What is a Dental Bridge?

You’ve probably seen countless bridges, and a dental bridge works the same basic way. It spans the space left by one or more adjacent missing teeth using a series of dental crowns that are bonded together and fitted into the mouth. Every bridge we place is 100% custom-designed for each patient to deliver the best when it comes to aesthetics, function, and durability.

Types of Dental Bridges

No two people experience tooth loss the same way, and that’s why our practice offers two different kinds of dental bridges. We’ll discuss the unique points of both at your initial appointment so you and your dentist can decide which one would be best for you.

Traditional Dental Bridge

For this, the replacement teeth are anchored to dental crowns that are fitted over the healthy teeth on either side of the gap. A traditional dental bridge can be fixed or removable based on your preference, and getting one made and placed typically takes about two appointments.

Dental Implant Bridge

With a dental implant bridge, the crowns that restore your lost teeth are held in place by one or two dental implants topped with crowns placed on both ends. These offer more stability and strength compared to a traditional bridge, plus the prosthetic will keep the nearby jawbone strong as well.
