What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a common, cost-effective way to treat tooth loss. It involves the use of custom-made prosthetic teeth that fill the space of the missing teeth. The restoration itself is held in place by dental crowns that are fused to either side of free-standing replacement teeth, called pontics. For example, a “three tooth” bridge is supported by two teeth and replaces a single missing tooth.

Types of Dental Bridges

If you are looking for an affordable and effective means to treat your tooth loss, a traditional bridge may be the right option for you. This is especially true if there is insufficient bone to permit placement of a dental implant.


Traditional bridges are anchored in place with two dental crowns that are permanently cemented onto the existing teeth on either side of the gap in your smile. This treatment is excellent for patients who want faster results and don’t want to undergo oral surgery, and they can last for well over a decade with good dental hygiene.


Dental bridges can also be retained by dental implants, which are small titanium posts that are surgically placed below the gumline and into the jawbone to replace the roots of missing teeth. This method offers enhanced stability, prevents the jawbone from eroding with time, and can last for over 35 years with proper maintenance. It’s excellent for patients looking for a more lifelike aesthetic and feel.
