Denver Dental Bridges

Contact Brilliant Family Dentistry today to learn more about our dental services.

At Brilliant Family Dentistry, we help people who have suffered tooth loss restore their smiles using dental bridges. This popular dental treatment helps individuals regain self-confidence and protect their oral health. If you have one or more missing teeth, our dental team can recommend a suitable dental bridge solution.

What Is a Dental Bridge?

People lose teeth for various reasons, including tooth decay, gum disease, and injuries to the mouth. The empty spaces can lead to other bite complications and tooth loss due to shifting and extruding teeth. Dental bridges fill these gaps to improve smile appearance and prevent shifting.

In general, a dental bridge consists of one or two abutment teeth on both or one side of the gap and the attached replacement teeth made of metal, porcelain, or a combination of the two. A dentist may place a crown on the abutment tooth or use dental implants to anchor the artificial replacements depending on the type of dental bridge.

Types of Dental Bridges

A dentist may recommend one of four types of dental bridges depending on the unique needs of your smile:

  1. A traditional bridge uses two or more dental crowns to keep the artificial teeth in place. A crown covers the exposed surface of an existing tooth as a protective cap.
  2. A cantilever bridge attaches to only one abutment tooth. Patients with this type of bridge may not have teeth on both sides of the gap.
  3. A resin-bonded bridge often replaces lost front teeth and uses wings to connect to the backs of the abutment teeth.
  4. An implant-supported bridge attaches to dental implants instead of crowns placed on existing teeth.

The dental team at Brilliant Family Dentistry can help determine which type of dental bridge will best suit you to restore the health and appearance of your smile.

Reasons To Consider a Dental Bridge

Patients consider dental bridges to resolve many issues associated with tooth loss, including:

  • Impaired speech
  • Difficulty eating
  • Shifting teeth
  • Bite issues
  • Low self-confidence

Tooth shifting caused by tooth loss may also result in difficulty cleaning the spaces between your teeth.

What To Expect During a Dental Bridge Procedure

Preparing your mouth for a permanent dental bridge takes one or more visits. During these appointments, the dentist prepares abutment teeth, scans or molds your teeth, and affixes a temporary bridge.

Once the permanent bridge has been created and colored to match your natural teeth, the dentist attaches it to the already prepared crowns or implants. It’s essential to update our office if you experience persistent discomfort with your new bridge after a few days.

I have been here multiple times having crowns put in,filling in areas with enamel corrosion ,cleaning and standard root canals, on my first visit I was depressed about my teeth humble state of affairs and didn't think much would be done with my insurance however at the end of the session I had my faith restored, total skill and professionalism, months later at the time of writing this , my teeth are no longer something iworry about! Also a very friendly and approachable staff not once did I feel any sharp pain or intolerable discomfort. Best dam dentist office I've ever been to.
