What Is a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges are typically the first choice for patients seeking a natural-looking and easy way to restore their smile. A dental bridge is a set of false teeth (pontics) that are customly made to fill the space of missing teeth. They’re secured with the use of custom dental crowns, giving your smile a naturally beautiful appearance. A dental bridge can replace up to four missing teeth. Once dental bridges are placed, they should be taken care of as natural teeth.

Why Patients Need Dental Bridges

Patients often choose dental bridges when they have missing teeth, significant teeth gaps, or severely damaged teeth. Dental bridges are an inexpensive option for patients experiencing:

  • One or multiple missing teeth
  • Bite problems
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Feeling self conscious about their smile
  • Pain caused by excess stress on the teeth or jaw

The Dental Bridge Process

At Elevate Dental Wellness, our Basalt dentists will ensure that your dental needs are met. In just two appointments, our dentists can fully restore your smile.

At your first appointment, one of our dentists will prepare your anchor teeth by gently removing a small portion of enamel to ensure your bridge will fit perfectly. A detailed digital impression of your smile will then be taken to craft your customized dental bridge. 

Two weeks later, you’ll return to our office for your final fitting appointment. The dentist will perfectly fit the bridge to your teeth and your smile will officially be restored. Unless stated otherwise, there isn’t a need for a third appointment. 

Patients should care for their dental bridges by practicing good oral hygiene such as brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing, cleaning underneath your bridge to remove any debris and food particles, and scheduling regular dental cleaning and exams visits with your dentist at Elevate Dental Wellness.

Dental bridges are often covered by insurance, as they’re typically considered a necessary treatment. To learn more about insurance coverage, please give our Basalt office a call at 970- 279-5647 and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have. 

How long does it take to get a dental bridge?

Depending on your needs, you may be able to receive a dental bridge in one to two visits to our Basalt, CO dental office. If you choose to receive an implant-supported bridge, you’ll need to wait longer for your final restoration than with traditional bridges. Dr. Steinbach will provide you with an estimated treatment timeline at your initial consultation.  

How many teeth can be in a dental bridge?

Dental bridges can support one to four adjacent missing teeth. Patients who need more than four teeth replaced may benefit from a partial denture. During your initial appointment, our dentist will evaluate your oral health to determine if dental bridges are best suited for your needs.
