What is a Dental Bridge?

When you’re missing multiple teeth, you can rely on what is known as a dental bridge. Made from two dental crowns and artificial teeth (pontics), the crows sit on top of healthy abutment teeth that must be altered to hold the bridge in place. Between the crowns are pontics that mimic the look of natural teeth but rest on top of the gumline. Once bonded into place, these restorations make it easier to speak, eat, and smile so that you can continue to live with a more confident and positive attitude.

Types of Dental Bridges

Before you can receive a dental bridge, you must make an appointment with Dr. Holinbeck or another member of our team. It is during this visit that she will go over the various types of dental bridges you can choose from:

Traditional Dental Bridge

Traditional dental bridges are also referred to as fixed bridges because they are bonded into place over healthy teeth. These have been around for decades, giving people the chance to enjoy their smiles again.

Using traditional crowns and pontics to fill in the gaps, dental bridges are known for their stability and durability so that you can eat what you like, speak confidently, and feel completely at ease when conversing and smiling around others.

Implant Bridge

Instead of altering healthy teeth to serve as anchors for a traditional bridge, there is also the option of choosing implant bridges. Using two dental implant posts, we can place them within the jawbone on either side of the gap before placing a customized bridge over the top. Securing it into place, you will notice a dramatic difference in what your smile looks and feels like as well as how durable it is when eating and speaking. Not to mention, with proper care, these bridges can last a lifetime.

What Are the Benefits of Getting a Dental Bridge?
