What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges are tooth replacement prosthetics used to replace one or a few consecutive missing teeth. They work by attaching dental crowns to two surrounding healthy teeth. The replacement tooth or teeth are then fused to the dental crowns, recreating flawless smiles and healthy function.

Types of Dental Bridges

We’ll perform an oral examination, review your medical history, and inquire about your goals to determine whether dental bridges in Richardson are right for you. Based on our findings, we’ll recommend one of the following options:

Traditional Bridge

The restoration is anchored to your mouth with dental crowns. It’s worth noting that it requires the alteration of your natural healthy tooth structure to ensure the bridge fits properly when placed.

Implant Bridge

They’re secured to your mouth using two dental implants instead of crowns. Each implant is placed on either side of the gap in your smile. Once they’ve fused with the jawbone via osseointegration, we’ll attach a dental bridge to the implants to complete your grin. A significant advantage of this option is that it doesn’t require the alteration of your existing teeth.
