Dental Bridges

Home General Dentistry Services

Gaps in your smile can be a major confidence killer, but you don’t have to live with missing teeth. Dental bridges are a great option to fill the gaps made when a tooth or teeth fall out. Dental bridges can be used to replace anywhere from one to four missing or badly damaged teeth. Getting a dental bridge won’t just improve how your smile looks, it can also improve your dental health, speech, and job opportunities. Your family dentist at Heroes Dental can help you determine if a dentist bridge is right for you.

Protect Your Dental Health and Restore Your Smile With a Dental Bridge

Traditional Dental Bridge

The most common type, traditional dental bridges are made of two crowns with artificial teeth in between.

Cantilever Dental Bridge

Cantilever dental bridges are made up of a dental crown attached to an artificial tooth, filling a gap.

Maryland Dental Bridge

A Maryland dental bridge is made of a pair of metal wings on either side of a dental bridge of artificial teeth.

Implant-Supported Bridge

Rather than being supported by your natural teeth, implant-supported bridges are connected to the jaw via implants.

Dental Bridges Frequently Asked Questions

Are There Any Drawbacks to a Dental Bridge?

When they’re installed by a careful and experienced dentist, there are no health issues associated with dental bridges. However, it’s possible that a bridge could trap bacteria against nearby teeth. The best way to protect against this is by practicing good dental hygiene.

Are Dental Bridges Painful?

You shouldn’t expect to feel any pain during your dental bridge procedure. It’s possible that you may experience some dental sensitivity following your installation, and preparing your teeth for a bridge can also be painful.

How Many Teeth Can a Dental Bridge Replace?

Dental bridges are meant to fill the gaps made by severely damaged or missing teeth. Bridges can be used to replace between one and four missing teeth.

How Long Will a Dental Bridge Last?

Dental bridges are a long-term solution to serious dental problems, but they don’t last forever. The average dental bridge can last anywhere from five to 15 years, with some bridges lasting even longer with careful hygiene.
