At Anderson Family Dentistry, we understand the importance of a complete smile for both your oral health and self-confidence. Dental bridges are a time-tested solution we offer to replace missing teeth, effectively bridging the gap created by one or more lost teeth. Composed of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth or teeth in between, bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants. This restorative procedure not only restores the aesthetics of your smile but also its functionality.

The process begins with preparation of the anchor teeth or implants, which involves reshaping these teeth to ensure a proper fit for the crowns that will support the bridge. Next, impressions of your teeth are made, serving as a model from which the bridge, crowns and false teeth will be crafted. While your custom bridge is being created, you will wear a temporary bridge to protect the exposed teeth and gums. Finally, the new bridge is fitted, adjusted and cemented into place, completing your restored smile.

Choosing a dental bridge offers numerous benefits:

  • Restoration of your smile and the ability to chew and speak properly
  • Maintenance of the shape of your face, preventing jawbone deterioration
  • Even distribution of the forces in your bite, helping to preserve oral health
  • Prevention of remaining teeth from drifting out of position

Dental bridges represent our commitment to restoring not just the look of your smile, but its health and function as well. If you are missing one or more teeth and are considering your replacement options, we are here to guide you through the process of getting a dental bridge.
