More About Bridges


Dental bridges are a great way to replace missing teeth. Your existing teeth are used to literally create a bridge to cross the area where your tooth is missing. Bridges are made of gold, metal, alloys, or porcelain to ensure that they are strong and durable.

How does a dental bridge work?

An abutment (a connector) is created with the patient’s existing teeth. These teeth are reworked to act as a stable base for the bridge

Once the abutment is formed, a mold is taken of the area

The mold is sent to a dental lab where a custom made bridge is built to fit the patient in a way that feels as close to their natural teeth as possible.

While waiting for your permanent bridge, a temporary bridge will be placed in your mouth to protect the abutments and vulnerable gum areas.

If you are missing a tooth you should strongly consider having it replaced. Besides the aesthetic disadvantage of missing a tooth, it could also cause structural changes to your mouth and jaw, as well as make it difficult to eat or speak properly. Set up an appointment today to restore your smile.

A new dental bridge may take some time to feel like your natural teeth. Following the dental bridge placement, it is highly recommended that you eat soft foods for a few days before transitioning back to regular habits. Our team will go over pre- and post-treatment information during your visit.

We recommend coming in for a consultation so we can discuss your case specifically and put together a few options for you.


Common Questions


When is a dental bridge needed?

If you have a missing tooth, the empty space can cause your other teeth to shift over time. A dental bridge is used to fill the empty space and preserve the structure of your teeth and smile.

How long does a dental bridge last for?

Most dental brindles will last between 10 and 15 years, but it ultimately depends on the amount of care and the level of hygiene practiced.
