About Dental Bridges

Dental bridges offer helpful cosmetic and restorative solutions for missing teeth. While we typically think of missing a tooth as an aesthetic issue, it can also cause structural damage to your jaw and mouth overall. A bridge is a prosthetic that can either fill in for a single tooth or a few teeth that are adjacent to one another.

What Are They and How Do They Work?

The prosthetic tooth (or teeth) fits into the gap from missing teeth. It is supported by the teeth adjacent to the gap.

The existing teeth—also known as abutments—are usually fitted with crowns to support the dental bridge. This helps ensure its durability, longevity, and structural support.

As is the case with all of our procedures, we custom-make the prosthetic to perfectly match your smile, crafting it to the ideal size and color of your existing teeth.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

Not only does a bridge improve the look of your smile, but it also helps keeps your mouth healthy. A bridge will improve your chewing and nutritional intake and it prevents food particles from accumulating in the empty space, where they may lead to cavities. For dental bridges supported on dental implants, the stimulation to your jawbone can help it stay strong and prevent bone resorption.
