Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are a reliable solution for individuals who are missing one or more teeth in a row, offering a natural-looking and functional way to restore your smile. Unlike removable dentures, dental bridges are fixed restorations that stay securely in place. This means you can regain the confidence to speak, eat and chew without worry.

The process of getting a dental bridge typically involves two visits to our dentist and team. During the first visit, Dr. Jim Const will prepare the adjacent teeth or dental implants that will serve as anchors for the bridge. Custom-made dental crowns are then placed on these prepared teeth or implants. These crowns are essential as they provide stability and support for the artificial tooth or teeth, also known as pontics, which fill the gap left by the missing teeth.

One of the significant advantages of dental bridges is their ability to distribute bite forces evenly, preventing excessive stress on surrounding teeth. This not only helps maintain the integrity of your natural teeth but also enhances your overall oral health.

Additionally, dental bridges can improve the aesthetics of your smile by restoring the shape and volume of your face and preventing adjacent teeth from shifting out of position. Whether you have lost teeth due to injury, decay or other reasons, a dental bridge can give you back your confident smile.

Our experienced dentist and team are committed to helping you make informed decisions about your dental health. During your initial consultation, our dentist will assess your unique situation and guide you in choosing the most suitable dental bridge option.
