If you have lost teeth, one of the options our prosthodontists may discuss with you are dental bridges in Denver, CO. This prosthetic tooth replacement literally “bridges” the gap caused by your missing teeth, restoring your smile as well as your ability to eat and speak normally.

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are a traditional and effective solution for replacing missing teeth. Composed of one or more prosthetic teeth, known as pontics, bridges are anchored onto neighboring teeth or dental implants. These anchoring teeth, called abutments, serve as the main support for the bridge, allowing the pontics to fill the gap left by missing teeth. Crafted from materials like porcelain, ceramics or metal alloys, dental bridges not only restore the functionality of teeth but also maintain the aesthetics of your smile.

When Are Dental Bridges Recommended?

Dental bridges are recommended for patients who have lost one or more teeth and wish to restore their dental function and appearance. They are particularly beneficial for those who seek a non-removable option and have healthy adjacent teeth or implants that can support the bridge. Bridges help prevent the shifting of remaining teeth into the empty spaces, which can lead to bite problems and other dental issues. They also aid in the distribution of bite forces, improve chewing efficiency and enhance speech clarity.

The Dental Bridge Process

The dental bridge process involves several steps. Initially, our Denver prosthodontist will assess the suitability of the patient’s adjacent teeth to support a bridge. Once deemed appropriate, these abutment teeth are prepared by reshaping them to accommodate the bridge. Impressions of the teeth are then taken to create a model from which the custom bridge is crafted. A temporary bridge may be placed while the permanent bridge is being fabricated. Once ready, the permanent bridge is adjusted for fit and comfort before being securely cemented into place. This process not only restores the patient’s smile but also reinstates the natural function of their teeth, making dental bridges a reliable and long-lasting solution for missing teeth.
