Why Choose Cove Choice Dental for Dental Bridges?

What Is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a set of prosthetic teeth that is fixed in your mouth to literally “bridge” the gap left behind when one or more teeth has been lost. It consists of several dental crowns fused together, with the crowns on the ends secured onto your remaining natural teeth. Alternatively, a bridge can be anchored onto dental implants if three or more consecutive teeth need to be replaced. In either case, a dental bridge lets you enjoy having a confident, complete smile that flawlessly blends in with the rest of your pearly whites.

Types of Dental Bridges

When you meet with your dentist in Copperas Cove, you’ll go over your medical history, the current state of your oral health, and the specific goals you wish to accomplish with your smile. From there, our team can let you know which of the two types of dental bridges would be better suited for your unique needs.

Traditional Dental Bridge

With a traditional dental bridge, a crown is bonded to each of the healthy teeth on the ends of the empty space in your grin. Multiple artificial teeth are strung between them, which will rest on top of your gums. This solution doesn’t involve oral surgery, so it’s considered less invasive and more affordable up-front than a dental implant bridge.

Implant Bridge

Instead of relying on your natural teeth (which can weaken them over time), an implant bridge is secured onto two dental implants. One of these titanium posts is surgically placed at each end of the gap to hold a bridge in place. Not only do implant bridges not require the removal of healthy enamel, but they also stimulate your jawbone to prevent facial collapse.
