What Is a Dental Bridge?

This restoration is designed to replace one or several missing teeth in a row. To achieve this, Dr. Makwana will first take impressions of your mouth, using this to recreate the parts of your smile that will need to be replaced. These will be sent to a dental lab so that they can fabricate your new teeth that will blend seamlessly with the rest of your grin. Your dental bridge will be supported by the natural teeth adjacent to the gap, which will have been prepared beforehand.

Types of Dental Bridges

Our team will walk you through your options during your initial consultation, should you be eligible for the treatment. Depending on your situation and dental needs, we’ll recommend providing you with one of the following solutions:

Traditional Dental Bridge

Like a traditional dental crown, fixed bridges require at least two visits to complete. The bridge consists of one or more replacement teeth attached to two dental crowns. Each crown is set in place over the surrounding healthy dental structure to anchor the prosthetic in place. With proper care, fixed bridges can last for decades and look and feel like a natural part of patients’ smiles.

Implant Bridge

For those patients interested in replacing a single tooth or several consecutive teeth without damaging healthy dental structures, dental implant-supported crowns or fixed bridges may be a better option. A single titanium post below the gums can be used to support a dental crown, and two or more implants can be used to support a fixed bridge.
