Are you self-conscious about your missing teeth? A dental bridge may be the solution you’re looking for. A dental bridge is a custom-made appliance that fills the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
It is a non-invasive and affordable way to restore your smile and improve your oral health. Here are some benefits of dental bridges:
A dental bridge is designed to look and feel like your natural teeth, enhancing your smile and overall appearance.
Restored Chewing Ability
Dental bridges can help restore your ability to chew and speak properly, making it easier to enjoy your favorite foods and communicate effectively.
Prevents Shifting of Teeth
A dental bridge prevents the remaining teeth from shifting out of position, which can lead to bite problems and further dental issues.
Durable and Long-lasting
Dental bridges are made from high-quality materials that are durable and long-lasting, so you can enjoy the benefits of a healthy smile for years to come.
Convenient and Non-Invasive
Getting a dental bridge is a relatively quick and non-invasive process, with minimal discomfort and downtime, allowing you to get back to your normal routine in no time.
Why are dental bridges a great option for you?
A dental bridge, as mentioned above, is used to fill a gap in your smile due to missing teeth. Bridges work well for one or two missing teeth, but not for replacing full arches or teeth that aren’t adjacent. Bridges work by attaching to neighboring teeth, using them as an anchor. There are two main parts to a bridge, the crowns and the pontic. Bridges can use your existing adjacent teeth if they are healthy, or in some cases, a dental implant can be installed and used as the anchor.
When getting a bridge, you have two options, whether you would like a removable bridge or a fixed bridge. Each has its own set of pros and cons. Fixed bridges provide a worry-free guarantee that the device won’t fall out, and is securely attached with bonding agents or dental implants. These can be more expensive. A removable bridge is great for easier cleaning when daily brushing or flossing.
The struggles of having missing teeth
Not everyone suffers from having a missing tooth or teeth, but it can happen to anyone. Whether you have had an injury, illness, or severe tooth decay that led to an extraction, missing teeth can weigh heavy on your self-esteem.
Your smile is one of the first things a person will notice about you, be it a co-worker, employer, friends, or any other potential relationship. Those that go into social situations confidently do get better results, in virtually all aspects of their life. Confidence is key. With missing teeth, a part of this confidence fades and is replaced with anxiety and worry that the other person is solely focusing on a visible flaw.
Luckily there is a solution to teeth replacement; dental bridges are an excellent choice for anyone who wants a full, natural-looking smile and to fill the gap of a missing tooth.

WHAT IS A DENTAL BRIDGE?
A dental bridge is a custom-made appliance that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. The bridge is typically made of two or more dental crowns that are attached to neighboring teeth or dental implants, with a false tooth (or teeth) in between to fill the gap.
DOES A DENTAL BRIDGE HURT?
Dental bridges are a painless procedure. The area being worked on will be adequately numbed, and most patients report feeling no pain at all. Once the work is done to prepare the teeth for accepting the bridge, a temporary bridge will be fitted. There is only minor discomfort on the first day or two.
WHEN SHOULD A DENTAL BRIDGE BE REPLACED?
There is no set time that a dental bridge should be replaced. Typically patients will have a bridge replaced due to failure of the dental fixture. They can also be replaced if the teeth used to attach the bridge weaken or become decayed. In this situation, patients can have the decayed teeth removed and fitted with a dental implant as a new supporting structure.
HOW MUCH DOES A DENTAL BRIDGE COST WITH INSURANCE?
The cost of bridges depends significantly on what insurance company you have, and what type of bridge you have installed. Those that use dental implants and bridges may not be covered by insurance. Dental implants on average cost $2,500 to $3,500 each, and then the cost of the bridgework. For fixed or removable bridges using your own teeth is typically covered up to 50% by insurance; however, this will vary from plan to plan.
WHAT TYPES OF DENTAL BRIDGES ARE AVAILABLE?
There are several types of dental bridges available, including traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, and Maryland bridges. Traditional bridges are the most common and involve using dental crowns to anchor the bridge to neighboring teeth. Cantilever bridges are used when there is only one neighboring tooth available for anchoring. Maryland bridges use a metal or porcelain framework to hold the bridge in place.
HOW IS A DENTAL BRIDGE APPLIED?
The process of applying a dental bridge typically involves two appointments. During the first appointment, the dental professional will prepare the neighboring teeth by removing a portion of the enamel to make room for the dental crowns. Impressions of the teeth are taken and sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge is custom-made. During the second appointment, the bridge is fitted and bonded into place using a specialized dental adhesive.
HOW LONG DO DENTAL BRIDGES LAST?
There are two types of bridges, those that are removable and those that are fixed. A fixed bridge is a top option for those that want a worry-free solution to missing teeth that look more natural and won’t fall out. Most patients can expect to get 15 years out of the bridges, sometimes more with proper care.
WHY WOULD SOMEONE NEED A DENTAL BRIDGE?
Someone might need a dental bridge if they have missing teeth that are affecting their ability to speak or eat properly, or if they are self-conscious about their smile. Dental bridges can also help prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of place, which can cause further dental problems down the line.
