Dental Bridges

What are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are one of the least invasive methods for replacing missing teeth. They quite literally bridge the gap that exists between missing teeth lost due to oral disease or injury. 

 

Dental bridges can be made of different materials, including porcelain, alloy, silver, gold, or a combination of these materials. They help in maintaining the shape of your face and eliminate stress on the bite, which is important for maintaining the integrity of your smile

Why Do You Need Dental Bridges?

Missing teeth can cause all kinds of issues that go beyond just the cosmetic. Replacing them can prevent a lot of issues with the alignment of your teeth down the line, and it’ll also prevent troubles and pain associated with eating when you’re missing a tooth. 

 

If you’re not interested in dental implants, which are usually more invasive, a dental bridge can be a superior alternative.  

What does a Dental Bridge look like?

At Sparr Heights Smiles, our goal is to give you a bright, happy smile. We create dental bridges that will blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth. They are undetectable, so others will not be able to tell that you have a dental bridge.  

Types of Dental Bridges

There are a few different types of dental bridges. 

 

  • A traditional dental bridge is best for replacing one missing tooth. It consists of a false tooth that connects to two crowns. The crowns are placed over the teeth adjacent to where the missing tooth was. 

  • A cantilever dental bridge is similar to a traditional bridge, but with only one crown. It’s a solution when there is only one natural tooth adjacent to the gap. 

  • A Maryland bridge relies on metal or porcelain bonded to your teeth from behind in order to anchor your false tooth in place. It’s another great option when only one tooth is missing. 

  • Implant-supported bridges are often a solution when multiple teeth are missing and a traditional bridge or a single implant will not suffice. Two implants are first embedded into the jaw, and then the bridge is attached to them.
