What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge in Landrum

A dental bridge is a customized restoration that is created using two dental crowns and artificial teeth. The crows are placed over healthy abutment teeth that are already filed down. Attached to these crowns are pontics or artificial teeth. Filling in the gap of your smile, you can trust that your dental bridge will last up to 10 years or more with optimal maintenance. And the best part is that you can likely receive your new teeth in just two visits.

Types of Dental Bridges

Currently, there are two types of dental bridges available. During your appointment, you and our team will go over your available options and discuss which one is right for you.

Traditional Dental Bridge

Traditional dental bridges have been widely used for decades. Although they are highly effective, they do require altering healthy teeth to serve as anchors for dental crowns. The remaining teeth, the pontics, fill in the space to create a clean, cohesive, and beautiful smile.

Implant Bridge

Implant bridges are designed with the help of two titanium posts that mimic the natural root structure as well as a customized dental bridge. Instead of relying on healthy teeth to anchor the bridge, it is attached to two surgically placed implant posts that fuse with your jawbone.
