Dental Bridges

What is a Bridge?

A dental bridge is a restoration that can replace one or more missing teeth. If you are interested in a tooth replacement that is stable, long-lasting, and natural-looking, a bridge may be just what you need. While three main types of bridges are available, the most common dental bridge in Centennial, Colorado, is known as a traditional bridge. A traditional dental bridge comprises two dental crowns and one pontic, or artificial tooth (if we replace multiple teeth, the bridge will include multiple pontics). The crowns are attached to the remaining natural teeth adjacent to the gap or dental implants to anchor the pontics. Because we create the bridge from impressions of your teeth, your restoration will blend in with your smile’s appearance and look natural. This is also a secure restoration because it is attached to the natural teeth or implants.

What is the Process?

We undertake the process with precision and care, ensuring we meticulously execute each step for optimal outcomes. We prepare the adjacent teeth by reshaping them to accommodate the bridge. We then make a detailed impression of the teeth, guiding the custom bridge and ensuring a seamless fit and natural appearance. 

During a subsequent visit, we carefully positioned and adjusted the custom-made bridge, confirming perfect alignment with the bite and aesthetic harmony with the surrounding teeth. Finally, we securely cement the bridge, restoring functionality and aesthetics. With a commitment to excellence, we perform every step in the dental bridge process with your comfort and dental health as top priorities.

What is the Cost?

Navigating the cost of a dental bridge can often feel like a trek through uncharted territory, but a thorough consultation with our team can illuminate the path ahead. The price of a dental bridge varies significantly based on several factors, including the number of teeth involved, the materials used, and the complexity of the placement procedure. A detailed consultation allows us to assess your needs and outline the optimal course of action, ensuring you understand the investment required for oral health. This crucial not only demystifies the cost of getting a dental butt it also lays the groundwork for a successful outcome, bringing you one step closer to a restored smile.
