What Is a Dental Bridge?

As you might have guessed from the name, a dental bridge is designed to literally “bridge” the gap in your smile. To accomplish this, dental crowns or dental implants are placed on either side of the opening and pontics (the replacement teeth) fill the open space. Most often, our Worcester dentist uses this tooth-replacement solution to replace between one and four teeth.

Types of Dental Bridges

Our team at Winthrop Street Dentistry is proud to offer two types of dental bridges. Of course, we will review each of them in-depth during your consultation to ensure you can make an informed decision about which one is best for you. In the meantime, you can learn more about each below:

Traditional Dental Bridge

A traditional dental bridge secures the replacement teeth between two dental crowns. While this may require some of your natural tooth structure to be altered, this solution is incredibly durable and lifelike. Plus, it can last for over a decade with proper care!

Implant Bridge

Implant bridges, on the other hand, secure the pontics between dental implants. Although this option often requires a higher upfront investment, the numerous benefits make it well worth it. Not only do the dental implants stimulate your jawbone, but they can last for 30 years!
