Dental bridges are an effective means of replacing missing teeth. Unlike dental implants, which require a surgical procedure for placement and may necessitate additional procedures for preparation, dental bridges are affixed to existing teeth, reducing both your treatment period and potential risks. What’s more, in many instances, teeth adjacent to a missing tooth have also been impacted by trauma and decay. Since a dental bridge utilizes dental crowns placed over supporting teeth, not only is the missing tooth or teeth replaced, adjacent teeth are strengthened and beautified in the process.

Dental Bridge Aesthetics and Function
Dr. Williams offers zirconia and porcelain-fused-to-metal bridges. Both of these options offer superior strength and stunningly beautiful, natural-looking restorations. The type of bridge best for your smile will depend on the number of teeth being replaced and tailored to meet your unique needs.
The placement of dental bridges requires two office visits. During your first visit, adjacent support teeth will be prepared for dental crowns, an impression of your teeth will be made, and a temporary bridge will be placed. You will continue to wear this bridge while your dental crowns are being custom created by one of our dental lab partners.
After your customized dental crowns have been made, you will return to our office to complete your treatment. Your crowns and bridge will be cemented into place, preventing issues that may be common with removable bridges or dentures such as slippage, and restoring full strength, function, and beauty to your smile.
