What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges are a great way to replace up to three missing teeth in a row. When you receive a bridge, your dentist in Putnam fits crowns over the remaining teeth at either end of the space in your smile. Then, more crowns are placed in between, literally bridging the gap and resulting in a tooth replacement that feels great and looks 100 percent natural. Note: if your missing teeth are not consecutive or you’re missing more than three in a row, you might be a better candidate for full or partial dentures instead.

Types of Dental Bridges

Whether you are missing one tooth or three consecutive teeth, there’s a good chance that our team can rebuild your smile with dental bridges. We offer two types at our Putnam dental office, and you can learn more about each right here:

Traditional Dental Bridge

Traditional bridges use dental crowns to anchor your replacement tooth or teeth securely in place. Although this may require some of your healthy teeth to be altered, the end result is extremely natural-looking and durable. So, your new and improved smile will look as great as it feels!

Implant Bridge

Implant bridges differ from traditional ones because they use dental implants to anchor the bridge instead of dental crowns. While the process often is a bit longer, it comes with numerous benefits, including that no healthy teeth need to be altered and the results can last for more than two decades with proper care.

The Benefits of Getting a Dental Bridge

  • Prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of alignment.
  • Evenly distribute the force of your bite.
  • Restore your smile and increase your confidence.
  • Custom-made to mimic the appearance of the rest of your pearly whites.
