Dental bridges are a popular and effective treatment option for individuals who are missing one or more teeth. This restorative procedure involves the placement of a prosthetic tooth, or pontic, that is anchored to the adjacent teeth on either side of the gap. The result is a natural-looking and functional replacement tooth that restores your smile and improves your oral health.
There are several reasons why dental bridges are a great option for individuals with missing teeth. First and foremost, bridges can help restore your ability to chew and speak properly. When you have missing teeth, it can be difficult to eat certain foods and pronounce certain words. Dental bridges provide a stable and durable solution that allows you to enjoy your favorite foods and speak with confidence.
Secondly, dental bridges can help maintain the alignment of your remaining teeth. When a tooth is missing, the adjacent teeth can shift and move out of their proper positions, leading to bite problems and potential jaw pain. By filling the gap with a dental bridge, you can prevent these issues and maintain a healthy and properly aligned smile.
On average, dental bridges can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years with proper care and maintenance.

Dental bridges are designed to look and feel like natural teeth. They are custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of your existing teeth, resulting in a seamless and natural-looking smile. With dental bridges, you can regain your confidence and feel proud of your smile once again.
Missing teeth can make it challenging to bite and chew properly. Dental bridges restore the full function of your teeth, allowing you to enjoy a varied and nutritious diet without restrictions. Whether it's biting into a crisp apple or savoring your favorite steak, dental bridges enable you to eat with ease and comfort.
When a tooth is missing, the surrounding teeth can become more susceptible to decay and gum disease. Dental bridges not only fill the gap but also provide support to the adjacent teeth, preventing them from shifting and reducing the risk of oral health issues. By maintaining good oral hygiene habits and regular dental check-ups, you can ensure the longevity of your dental bridges and protect your overall oral health.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Landon Lowell will examine your oral health and determine if dental bridges are the right solution for you. This may involve x-rays and impressions of your teeth to create a custom treatment plan.
To ensure a secure fit, the adjacent teeth on either side of the gap will be prepared by removing a small portion of their enamel. This step is necessary to create space for the dental bridge to be placed.
Using dental cement or adhesive, the dental bridge will be carefully placed and adjusted for optimal fit and comfort. Our dentist will ensure that the bridge blends seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a functional and aesthetically pleasing result.
