Dental Bridge

If you are missing teeth due to trauma, gum disease, or untreated cavities, you may struggle to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

A dental bridge is a completely customized set of prosthetic teeth that fills the gap in your smile and provides lasting comfort.

Curious what a dental bridge can do for you?

A Dental Bridge Can Restore


Dental Bridge To Chew & Speak Properly

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.

Dental Bridge To Blend With Your Natural Teeth

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.

Dental Bridge Supported By Dental Implants

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...

Both traditional and implant-retained bridges improve daily function…


Traditional vs. Implant-Supported Bridge

For a Traditional Bridge

Dental Exam Step 1

Your dentist will resize your surrounding teeth to make room for your dental bridge and the supporting dental crowns.

Dental Exam Step 2

He or she will then take impressions of your smile to design a bridge that looks and feels very natural for years to come.

Dental Exam Step 3

Your impressions will be sent to a lab, where a skilled technician will create your custom bridge.

Dental Exam Step 4

Once your dental bridge is ready for placement, your dentist will secure it in place using dental cement.

For an Implant-Supported Bridge


Your dentist will perform dental implant surgery.


Four to six months later, your dentist will place your abutments and take impressions of your smile.


Your impressions will be sent to a trusted lab.


When your permanent bridge is ready, your dentist will secure it to your dental implants.

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

But Will My Dental Bridge


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.

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.
