What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a single-unit restoration that looks like several teeth in a row. Aside from the replacement tooth or teeth (called “pontics”) there are two dental crowns on each side. These dental crowns are placed over the teeth on either side of where the missing tooth or teeth used to be. The pontics are supported securely between them, effectively “bridging” the gap in your smile!
Types of Dental Bridges
Thanks to the latest advancements in dental technology, we’re proud to offer two different types of dental bridges based on your unique preferences and situation. Both restorations are made from high-quality dental porcelain, which can be color-matched and carefully crafted to look exactly like your natural teeth. The difference between the two options is how they are placed. During your consultation, we’ll help you discover which type is right for you.
Traditional Dental Bridges
Traditional dental bridges are held in place by dental crowns that are placed over the remaining healthy teeth on either side of the gap. Dental crowns fit snugly over the top of a tooth, so some enamel will need to be removed to allow the dental crowns to fit.
Instead of securing your dental bridge onto your remaining healthy teeth, we can anchor them on top of two dental implants! A dental implant is a small titanium post that can be embedded into your jawbone to essentially replace the roots of your missing teeth. This allows us to place your dental bridge without altering your natural teeth, and while providing additional support for your jawbone! While implant bridges are more expensive and take longer to get than traditional dental bridges, they have the potential to last a lifetime.
