The perfect dental bridge solution is waiting for you at America Dental!
What are dental bridges and how do they work?
A dental bridge typically consists of two or more specially fitted crowns that are placed on either side of the missing tooth or teeth, over abutments, or anchoring teeth.
The crowns are joined in the middle by a “pontic” or more of them, thus, forming a dental bridge that fills the gap in your smile.
The dental crowns and the pontics will closely match the color of your teeth so that there is no telling that they are not your natural teeth. They become a permanent dental solution when the crowns are cemented.
Our state of the art technology allows us to perform CAD-CAM bridges (digital bridges), which are designed to model the desirable result of your smile.
Once you approve it, we can start making it a reality, so you can be satisfied with that perfect smile you are getting.
At America Dental we have the right types of dental bridges that can match a large variety of dental gaps. They are made with high-quality material that ensures its longevity and biocompatibility.
The price of our Zirconium bridges is also very affordable, at just $450.
Comparison between Bridges and Dental Implants
A dental implant replaces the underlying structure of a tooth with a metal post. Bone will later fuse with the post to ensure the implant is fully integrated.
While a dental bridge may be integrated into dental implants, there are type of bridges that do not require them, so the bridge is integrated into the existing teeth and gaps without any surgery.
Advantages and disadvantages between Bridges and Dental Implants
Bridges and dental implants may be used for different dental situations. However, it is important to know the advantages of each one, if you need to choose between them.
Dental implants place less of a burden on surrounding teeth and promote the healing of bone structure and gums under the teeth. However, they are normally a more costly treatment.
Dental bridges are one of the most cost-effective treatments to replace missing teeth. They are also a quicker process for replacing them. However, they do place stress on the two teeth that are attached to it, making it less durable than implants.
