Dental Bridges, An Alternative To Dental Implants

How Can A Dental Bridge Help?

This simple and effective treatment can give your mouth its natural support and functionality and help you smile with confidence. Because Gunnerson Dental also has an in-house lab, you can receive more accurate restorations in a more timely manner.

Why Dr. Gunnerson May Recommend A Dental Bridge?

If you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth in a row, we may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration, meaning it is non-removable. The dental bridge is anchored in place through the use of two dental crowns, which are custom made to fit your smile and are placed on the teeth or dental implants next to the space left by the missing tooth. These crowns hold the artificial tooth in place to restore your smile, ensuring that your restoration will not easily shift or come loose. It typically requires only two visits to our practice to complete the dental bridge. Dental bridges are designed to last for many years and restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile.

Dr. Gunnerson may recommend a dental bridge to improve your smile by:

  • Restoring your ability to speak, eat, and chew as normal
  • Alleviating excess stress on the bite
  • Improving the shape and volume of your face
  • Replacing an unwanted removable partial denture
  • Preventing the remaining natural teeth from moving out of position
  • Enhancing the appearance of your smile
