How does a dental bridge work?

If you have one or more missing teeth in a row, a dental bridge may be an ideal way to replace those teeth and restore your smile. At Alpine Family Dentistry, we can evaluate your oral health and determine if a dental bridge in Eagle Rock is the best solution for you. Our mission is to personalize your dental care to fit your goals and priorities.

Part of your dental bridge assessment is the health of your natural teeth on either side of the gap. You need these to be sturdy enough to support your bridge. If we are concerned about their stability, our dental team may recommend that we place a dental crown on one or both of your adjoining teeth for extra durability.

The appliance itself consists of a framework that creates an underlying structure on which we attach the missing tooth replacement, which is usually one or more porcelain crowns, the visible portion. These parts working together make your dental bridge an attractive and functional tooth replacement option.
