We’ll cover the ins and outs and everything you ever wanted to know about how you have a brand-new smile full of beautiful, healthy teeth!


Bridge the Gap Between a Frown and a Smile

A dental bridge does just what its name implies: it bridges the gap left behind by two or more teeth. If you’re missing teeth, you may want to replace them for several reasons, and they’re not just cosmetic. We offer several restorative dentistry options for replacing missing teeth, and a dental bridge is one of the faster, more affordable options that have made many patients smile. 

A bridge consists of two or more prosthetic teeth connected to cover the gap left behind by missing teeth. They typically use the natural teeth on either side of the gap for support. They are solid, long-lasting, and just as functional as your natural teeth. 


Bridges look great, too! We customize them from specialized dental material designed to look and feel like your natural teeth. They’ll match the size, shape, and color of your teeth to fit perfectly within your smile!


When you smile and talk, others can hardly tell the difference between your natural teeth and your dental bridge. But you’ll notice the improvement – bridges can improve your quality of life, dental functionality, and dental health. You won’t have to worry about the health risks of missing teeth, including increased tooth decay and jawbone deterioration, not to mention the unsightly gap in your smile. 


You’ll have teeth solid enough to bite into and chew all your favorite foods. And with proper care and dental hygiene, your bridge can last a lifetime. You only need to brush and floss your teeth regularly to keep your bridge and natural teeth in tip-top shape. 


Why Are Dental Bridges So Strong?

A dental bridge benefits from the support of your natural teeth. When we place the bridge, we prep and form the natural teeth on either side of the gap the bridge will cover. This way, they’re perfectly shaped for the bridge to fit over them, and then we cement the bridge in place to ensure a long-lasting restorative dentistry solution. 


A few different types of dental bridges use other support systems. The right solution for you can depend on your goals, time limitations, and budget. During your consultation, we’ll answer all your questions and cover all the restorative dentistry solutions we offer, including dental bridges, crowns, and implants


How Much Do Dental Bridges Cost?

The cost can vary, depending on the type of dental bridge you choose and the complexity of your treatment. But another benefit of dental bridges is that they can be more affordable than alternative solutions, such as dental implants. Bridges are also less invasive and faster than implants. 


If you are interested in dental bridges, dental implants, or any of our treatments, the best first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kisner and her team. During your consultation, she’ll cover cost expectations and provide helpful recommendations.
