What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges provide a solution for when you're missing one or multiple teeth in a row at a given position within your smile. Bridges span the gap between the ends of a run of missing teeth. A dental bridge consists of artificial teeth, known as pontics, which are held in place by abutments or anchor teeth.

Bridges offer some versatility in that they can be anchored to your natural teeth or by dental implants, depending on your specific needs. Our tooth-colored bridges are designed with care, using high-quality materials chosen specifically to mimic the look of your existing teeth, so they fit in seamlessly. Dental bridges serve the vital role of improving your ability to chew and speak while preventing your remaining teeth from shifting out of position.

Our Process for Providing Dental Bridges in Lakeview

Whether providing traditional or implant-supported bridges, we aim to make your experience with us as streamlined and reassuring as possible. We design our process to take place over the space of two appointments. We'll work to help you feel fully informed and comfortable with each step of your treatment plan. Our team values communication and welcomes your questions whenever they arise. While everyone's restorative treatment plan will look different, here's what you can expect in general over the two appointments:

First Appointment:

  • Initial Consultation: Our approach begins with an in-depth oral examination. Using advanced diagnostic tools, we evaluate the health of your teeth and gums, which aids us in determining if a dental bridge is the ideal solution for you.
  • Tooth Preparation & Impressions: To support the bridge, we prepare the anchor teeth or prepare you for placing dental implant posts. We then take detailed impressions of your teeth and send them to our reputable dental lab partner, where they'll craft your traditional or implant bridge prosthetic.

Second Appointment:

  • Bridge Placement: When the lab finishes making your bridge, we'll schedule your placement appointment. This process will differ depending on whether you're getting a traditional or dental implant-supported bridge. However, once the bridge is in place, our dentist will work to make any adjustments to ensure an excellent fit.

Maintaining Your Dental Bridge

Maintaining your dental bridge is crucial for its longevity and goes hand in hand with good oral hygiene. We emphasize the importance of a consistent routine for brushing and flossing. Our team also gives you specific instructions for cleaning under and around the bridge. Routine dental check-ups and in-office cleanings are vital for keeping your dental bridge in good condition. Following these simple maintenance steps can keep your prosthetic in excellent condition for many years.

Traditional & Implant Dental Bridge FAQs

We know the importance of being well-informed, especially when making decisions about your dental health. Our dedicated team is always ready to address your questions and concerns about fixed dental bridges. We take the time to make sure you are fully aware and confident about your treatment plan. Here are some of the common questions we get from our patients:

Should I straighten my smile before or after getting a restoration?

It depends on factors such as how long you have had missing teeth, whether your other teeth have shifted out of place, and if you are looking to get a traditional dental bridge or an implant-supported bridge. Our dentists will talk to you about whether we can offer orthodontic services after placing your restorative prosthetic.

Yes. Bridges can still be a suitable option even if you have other dental concerns, like gum disease. Our comprehensive oral health assessment will help us recommend the best course of action. We'll address any underlying issues before proceeding with bridge placement.

Immediately after getting your bridge you may experience some minor discomfort with your bridge as you heal. After healing, your bridge will fit in seamlessly, and will quickly feel like a natural, comfortable part of your smile.
