What are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are a proven solution for replacing missing teeth, designed to restore your smile's function and appearance. They consist of artificial teeth (pontics) anchored by crowns on adjacent teeth or implants, forming a "bridge" across gaps. Bridges can be crafted from materials like porcelain, ceramics, or metals, chosen to blend with your natural teeth in color and durability.

The installation process typically requires two visits: one for tooth preparation and impressions, and another for fitting the custom bridge. Beyond aesthetics, bridges improve chewing and speech and prevent other teeth from shifting. With proper maintenance, they offer a long-lasting, cost-effective option for filling tooth gaps.

Our dental team will guide you through choosing the most suitable bridge, considering factors like gap location and oral health, to ensure a natural look and comfortable fit.

Do I Qualify For Dental Bridges

While one of our highly skilled Nashville based dentists will ultimately be able to suggest the right restorative solution for you, here are some factors they will likely take under consideration:

  • State of Natural Teeth/Gums
    • The health of the surrounding teeth and gums is important for the success of a dental bridge placement to last long term. If you’ve recently had a tooth extracted, you may need to wait a few months for the gum and underlying bone to heal.
  • Amount of Missing Teeth
    • If you have a few adjacent missing teeth, a dental bridge is an ideal solution. For a single missing tooth, you might consider a dental implant and for a large quantity of missing teeth or spaced out gaps, you may benefit from dentures.
  • Age
    • Dentists do not typically place bridges on children since their teeth are still in development. When a child’s jaw and teeth are fully mature, they can have a dental bridge placed if that is the optimal solution.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Bridges?

  • Maintain face shape
    • When you have gaps due to missing teeth, they no longer provide structural support for your face. Without this support, your facial contours may begin to shift, resulting in reduced definition and sagging skin.
  • Protect Teeth Alignment
    • Without prevention from a dental bridge or implant, the teeth around the gap are likely to move into the space - resulting in teeth alignment being thrown off and less straight smile.
  • Improve Bite
    • Because of the improvements to teeth alignment, the alignment of the bite as well can see improvement, leading to better chewing ability. 
  • Long-lasting 
    • With proper care, dental bridges can last up to 15 years! When the lifespan of a dental bridge reaches its end, your dentist can skillfully replace it with a new one to maintain the aesthetic of your smile

What Are the Differences Between Bridges and Dentures?

While both solutions are used to replace missing teeth, there are significant differences between dentures and dental bridges. Here is a summary:

Dental Bridges
  • Fixed in mouth
  • Higher cost
  • Complicated cleaning under the bridge
  • Good for a few missing teeth only
Dentures
  • Removable
  • Less Costly
  • Easier to clean due to being removable 
  • Partial and entire mouth options
