A bridge is like two or more crowns splinted together with a hanging tooth in the middle. It is one of the many possible solutions for missing teeth. Bridges can redistribute the chewing forces that are unbalanced when teeth are missing. If cared for properly, meaning regular checkups and cleanings with periodic x-rays, bridges can last a couple of decades or more. We use the finest methods and materials to ensure you receive a durable restoration. All of our off-site work is done by the finest dental labs in Whatcom County - ensuring you quality and precise fit - something we are very proud of.
During your consultation, our team at Moreno Dental will conduct an oral examination to determine which type of dental bridge is right for you. We’ll review your medical history and inquire about your goals to find the best option for your needs. Based on our discussion, we’ll recommend one of the following:
If you need to replace one or more missing teeth, we can use a traditional dental bridge. It’s anchored to your mouth with two dental crowns and will require the alteration of your natural enamel. This is the most commonly placed type of dental bridge.
Patients who want a more durable method of tooth replacement can opt for an implant bridge. It’s secured to your mouth with two dental implants instead of dental crowns. The implant posts are placed on either side of the missing gap in your smile. Once they fuse with the jawbone, we’ll attach a custom dental bridge to seamlessly complete your smile. Unlike traditional bridges, this option requires no alteration of your existing teeth.
