Dental bridges literally bridge the gap between one to three missing teeth. As a more secure option than dentures and a less invasive option than dental implants, bridges are one of the most popular ways to replace missing teeth and restore strength and beauty to your smile.

Missing teeth can detract from the appearance of your smile. Worse still, missing teeth can present a number of functional issues, making everyday tasks a burden. Dental bridges serve to replace missing teeth, allowing them to provide benefits including:
Dental bridges provide a long-lasting solution for tooth replacement, however, unlike dental implants, bridges do not address jaw shrinkage and may, over time, need to be adjusted or replaced. This will be discussed with you in greater detail during your tooth replacement consultation.
Ideal candidates for dental bridges should be missing one or more teeth, but no more than three in a row. To place a dental bridge requires healthy teeth on either side of the gap, making it a poor solution for replacing multiple teeth or full arches.
We will need to ensure your adjacent teeth are healthy and that you are free of gum disease before placing a dental bridge. If either of these things are an issue, we can discuss treatments that may be necessary prior to the placement of your bridge. The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for a dental bridge is with a one-on-one consultation with our experienced Media cosmetic dentists.
