What Is a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges in Garland are one of the easiest and fastest ways to replace several missing teeth in a row. This custom-made restoration features a set of dental crowns with one to three replacement teeth between them. The dental crowns are affixed over the teeth that neighbor the gap in your mouth, effectively bridging the empty space. Our dental bridges are made of the highest quality materials and are custom-made to look just like your natural teeth, so the end result should be virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Types of Dental Bridges

At Orbit Dental of Garland, we’re proud to offer two different types of dental bridges depending on your specific needs and preferences. We’ll go over each of these options in greater detail during your consultation to help you determine which option is best for you.

Traditional Dental Bridges

When comparing your two options, traditional dental bridges are most cost-effective, faster, and are less invasive. However, it should be noted that some enamel will need to be removed from the teeth that will be supporting either side of the dental bridge. They will last for about 10-15 years.

Implant Bridges

Alternatively, you can secure your dental bridge in place with dental implants. Instead of relying on your remaining healthy teeth for support, an implant bridge rests on top of two small titanium posts that are positioned in your jawbone. While this option requires more time and money initially, it offers longer-lasting and incredibly lifelike results.

The Benefits of Getting a Dental Bridge

If you’re missing a tooth in the back of your mouth, you may be wondering if it’s worth replacing since no one can see it. If you’re missing a few visible teeth, you may only be concerned with improving your appearance. However, getting a dental bridge offers a variety of important benefits that you may not have considered, including:

  • Preventing dental drift (teeth shifting into the open area), which in turn prevents crooked teeth and a misaligned bite.
  • Improving your ability to eat comfortably and speak clearly once again.
  • Providing support to your facial muscles, offering a more filled-out appearance
  • Promoting better oral health by reducing the risk of cavities, gum disease, and other common oral health issues
  • Helping you regain the complete, confident smile you deserve
