Why should I get a dental bridge?
Losing a tooth can put a damper on your smile and self-confidence. But there’s no need to wait to fix your situation — a dental bridge can fortify the healthy teeth that surround your gap and can replace your missing tooth in just two visits. The bridge prevents your surrounding healthy teeth from shifting and reduces the risk of bone loss or bite problems. Plus, this appliance is permanently fixed into your surrounding teeth, which prevents it from moving around like dentures. You’re just one bridge away from getting your grin back.

The Benefits of Dental Bridges
No Surgery Needed
Undergoing a dental bridge treatment is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process. An implant-retained bridge will require surgery.
Durable & Sturdy
Permanently affixed to your surrounding healthy teeth, bridges can last for years with proper care.
Strengthens Your Smile
Bridges preserve your alignment and keep your other teeth from shifting.
The Dental Bridge Treatment Process
Preparation & Impressions
After cleaning and numbing your mouth, your dentist will prepare the teeth next to your missing tooth. These “abutment teeth” will hold your crowns, which will be permanently attached to the bridge. Next, your dentist will take impressions or models of your teeth and send them to a lab to build your dental bridge.
Depending on your needs, your dentist in Mesa will place a temporary resin bridge to protect your prepared abutment teeth, or two temporary dental crowns. Either way, your prepared teeth will be covered and protected until your permanent bridge can be placed.
Once your permanent bridge is ready, you’ll come into the office to have the bridge checked for proper fit. Minor adjustments may be made to ensure that your bridge looks and feels natural. Your dentist will then use powerful dental cement to attach the dental crowns and bridge permanently to your abutment teeth, restoring your smile and your bite.
