Dental Bridges

Replace Missing Teeth with a Dental Bridge

If you suffer from tooth loss, we know that living without a complete smile can take a toll on your health and happiness. Here at Warren Family Dentistry, we offer dental bridges to restore your smile if you’re missing multiple teeth across your upper or lower arch.

A dental bridge is made up of two or more crowns that bridge the gap between your missing teeth. They’re supported by your surrounding natural teeth or by dental implants.

During your consultation with our team, we’ll take a look at your dental health and determine a treatment plan that’s best for you.

Benefits of a Dental Bridge

When looking for a tooth replacement option at our Warren dental office, we’ll always lay out your options and help you decide on the right treatment for your needs. Dental bridges offer many different benefits for you and your smile. With a dental bridge we’ll be able to:

  • Restore your smile
  • Help improve your abilities to eat and speak
  • Maintain the shape of your face
  • Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position

How Do You Place a Bridge?

When it comes time to place your dental bridge, the entire treatment will be done within just two appointments. At your first visit, we’ll prepare your anchor teeth by reshaping them so that the dental crowns can be secured precisely over them.

We’ll also need to take impressions of your teeth where the bridge will be placed so our dental lab can carefully craft a restoration just for you.

After a two week period, you will come back for your second visit and our team can place your new dental bridge. Before fastening the bridge over your prepared teeth, we’ll check that the shape, size, color fit perfectly and blend seamlessly with your smile.

Once it’s been placed, you’ll be able to leave our office with a complete and beautiful smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

A dental bridge isn’t permanent, but it is a long-lasting solution that won’t need to be replaced for typically 15 years. With a proper oral hygiene routine and regular checkups at Warren Family Dentistry, you can help prolong the lifetime of your dental bridge.

During your checkups, we’ll regularly tighten your dental bridge to ensure it stays secure for years to come.

Dental bridges generally won’t fall out because they’re made of durable material and are strategically placed to deliver ultimate comfort and security. While they may become loose over time, our team can quickly tighten it during your routine appointments.

If your dental bridge feels loose or it has fallen out or broke, contact us immediately so we can repair it. In the meantime, avoid trying to fix the bridge yourself or trying to re-adhere it so you don’t damage it further.

Caring for your dental bridge is just as you take care of your natural teeth. Simply brush and floss twice a day and rinse at least once a day with a non-alcoholic mouthwash.

Additionally, It’s crucial to know that bridges are prone to decay if not taken care of properly, so be sure to come in at least twice a year to ensure your smile remains healthy.

Dental bridges and dental implants can replace missing teeth, but there are some differences between the two treatments. For instance, the cost, and longevity of the two solutions are very different.

A dental implant can last a lifetime because it is surgically inserted into your jawbone and known as a permanent treatment. A dental bridge isn’t completed through surgery, and instead, it’s placed over your gaps and supported by your natural teeth.

The cost is also a differentiating factor. For example, the price of your dental implant treatment is determined by the condition of your dental health and how many implants are needed. Dental bridges are considered a more affordable option to replace missing teeth and the overall cost depends on the number of teeth being replaced.
