What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are typically mentioned alongside dental crowns because they work together in unison – the new bridge is designed to resemble the missing teeth in their look and feel, and the crowns fit over nearby healthy teeth to hold it in place for permanent, lifelike results. During your consultation, our dentists in Longmont can help you determine if a dental bridge or a different tooth replacement option is the right fit for you.

Types of Bridges

Depending on your smile goals and your tooth loss situation, your dentist may recommend either a traditional or implant dental bridge.

Traditional Dental Bridge

Traditional dental bridges offer faster results, but they require alteration of your surrounding healthy teeth in order to support the restoration. As mentioned above, traditional bridges depend on your healthy teeth to act as abutments to hold the bridge in place. This offers natural-looking results and is cost-effective, but some patients prefer a more natural-feeling outcome. In these cases, an implant bridge may be the better option.

Following the loss of a single tooth or several teeth in a row, we can also recommend a dental implant-supported tooth replacement solution. For one lost tooth, a dental implant post can be used to support a custom crown. Unlike a fixed bridge restoration, the implant-retained crown is fully self-supporting, protecting your surrounding healthy teeth. If you’ve lost two or more teeth in a row, a dental implant-supported bridge can be placed. Rather than attaching to surrounding teeth for support, an implant-retained bridge is anchored to two dental implant posts.

The Benefits of Getting a Dental Bridge

When you invest in a dental bridge to repair your smile, you’ll be able to enjoy these amazing benefits:

  • Improved oral health and reduced risk of further tooth loss.
  • Maintenance of your dental alignment, as bridges prevent surrounding teeth from shifting.
  • Results that look natural and will help you smile with more confidence.
  • Easy maintenance—simply brush and floss your teeth like you normally would.
  • Results that can last for 15 or more years with good dental hygiene.
