More About Bridges


If you’re missing teeth, a dental bridge can close the gap in your smile. Composed of materials such as gold or porcelain, dental bridges are strong and durable false teeth that easily blend in with your natural teeth.

How does a dental bridge work?

An abutment (a connector) is created with the patient’s existing teeth. These teeth are reworked to act as a stable base for the bridge

Once the abutment is formed, a mold is taken of the area

The mold is sent to a dental lab where a custom made bridge is built to fit the patient in a way that feels as close to their natural teeth as possible.

While waiting for your permanent bridge, a temporary bridge will be placed in your mouth to protect the abutments and vulnerable gum areas.

 

A missing tooth or teeth can cause structural shifts to the mouth and jaw which may result in difficulty eating or speaking normally. With a dental bridge, you can restore your smile, speech, ability to chew and maintain the shape of your face. 

We recommend coming in for a consultation so we can discuss your case specifically and put together a few options for you.

 


Common Questions


When is a dental bridge needed?

If you have a missing tooth, the empty space can cause your other teeth to shift over time. A dental bridge is used to fill the empty space and preserve the structure of your teeth and smile.

How long does a dental bridge last for?

Most dental brindles will last between 10 and 15 years, but it ultimately depends on the amount of care and the level of hygiene practiced.
