What is a Dental Bridge?

A fixed bridge is the most traditional method to replace one or more consecutive lost teeth. Your dentist in Norton Shores takes an impression of your mouth to recreate your teeth from all-ceramic material. The bridge will blend in with your real teeth to look natural as it takes the place of those you’ve lost. You’ll restore your confidence and chewing ability while providing your remaining teeth with the support they need to stay in place to avoid additional complications down the road.

Types of Dental Bridges 

You have more options than ever to treat missing teeth. After examining your smile and learning more about your preferences, we’ll recommend either:

Traditional Dental Bridge

All-ceramic dental bridge

As a tried-and-proven solution, a fixed bridge is the most common method to replace one or more teeth in a row. Your carefully crafted bridge will rely on the support of your adjacent teeth to stay in place, which means they’ll need to be reshaped to allow dental crowns to fit over them. It’s a quick, convenient means to complete your smile using a treatment that lasts about 7 to 10 years before needing to be replaced.

Implant Bridge

As an alternative to a fixed bridge, you can anchor your teeth in place using 1-2 dental implants. The posts are surgically placed into your jawbone to serve as new roots to enjoy unmatched support because they don’t rely on healthy teeth. You’ll preserve your natural smile by replicating the roots, which stops bone loss associated with missing teeth to lower your long-term costs for care. With over a 95% success rate to last for decades with the proper care, you can advantage from the next best thing to your real teeth.
