A Dental Bridge Can Restore Balance and Function to Your Smile

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. 

Now let us show you how a bridge works... 

A Bridge Can Replace One to Three Consecutive Teeth in a Single Treatment

According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, most middle-aged adults only have an average of 25 out of 32 natural teeth remaining

Both traditional and implant-retained bridges improve daily function...

But Will My Dental Bridge Look and Feel Natural?

When carefully designed by a dentist and expertly manufactured by a laboratory, a dental bridge can provide natural-looking results for up to 15 years or more after placement

Prior to placing your bridge, your dentist will conduct a bite assessment to ensure that your new prosthetic fits comfortably in your smile. There are a variety of materials that can be used to craft bridges, including porcelain, zirconia, and porcelain-fused-to-metal. Your dentist can help you choose the best type for you based on your budget and goals.

Are you wondering what to expect during treatment

After reshaping your surrounding teeth to make room for your dental bridge, your dentist will cement the restoration in place.

Still not sure whether a dental bridge is the best choice for you?

Understand Your Options

If you need to replace a single tooth, you may consider the benefits of an implant-supported crown. However, if you are missing several teeth or an entire arch, you may qualify for implant-supported dentures.

A bridge is a custom tooth replacement solution that can be tailored to your budget and long-term goals. If you are missing teeth, you should receive treatment as soon as possible to prevent more widespread damage. Schedule an appointment today to protect your smile.
