What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a custom-crafted restoration that can replace one or more consecutive missing teeth in an arch. The prosthetic is comprised of two dental crowns secured to either side of free-standing replacement teeth, called pontics. The crowns are secured to your natural teeth located on either side of the gap in your smile, holding the bridge in place and completing your arch of teeth. With the proper maintenance, dental bridges can last for anywhere from five to 15 years.
The Benefits of Dental Bridges
Replacing missing teeth is crucial in order to preserve your oral health. When you get a dental bridge, you can enjoy a variety of benefits, including:
- Prevent surrounding teeth from drifting into misalignment.
- Enhance your speaking and chewing abilities.
- Easy to maintain and keep clean.
- Maintain your facial structure.
- Restores the complete look and feel of your smile.
- Helps combat the threat of additional tooth loss.

The Process of Getting a Dental Bridge
When you come into our office to get a dental bridge, it will likely take place over the course of two appointments. First, we will prepare the teeth that the crown-portion of your bridge will be placed on. Then, we’ll capture a digital impression of the area that we’ll use to create a blueprint of your dental prosthetic with. All of our specifications will be sent to our laboratory to craft your crown. Once we receive it, we’ll call you back in to permanently cement it and complete your arch.
