A dental bridge is a series of caps that cover the gap between one or more missing teeth. Anchoring teeth on either side of the gap are trimmed to accept the caps from the bridge. Cutting otherwise good teeth may cause problems with healthy teeth which is why we recommend a dental implant.

They not only have years of experience but also attend training to stay up to date with the latest dental bridges materials & techniques.

Dental Bridge Cost
A dental bridge range in cost from $3,500 up depending on the complexity; however, insurance often covers part of the cost and financing is available for those that qualify.
Dental Bridge vs. Implant
We recommend dental implants rather than bridges; however, implants usually aren’t covered by insurance. A dental bridge may cause problems to otherwise healthy teeth which is why we recommend a dental implant. Dental bridges are susceptible to maintenance problems and can break increasing the long-term costs and time investment.
Types of Dental Bridges
There are two primary types of dental bridges traditional and cantilever. We only offer traditional bridges as cantilever have to high of a probability of failure or damaging the abutment tooth. There are others such as Maryland bonded bridges which we feel are worse than cantilever because it has a false tooth on each side of the abutment.
Dental Bridge Pain
Dental bridge pain shouldn’t exist. If you have a problem, please be sure to call us.
