Understanding the Benefits of Dental Bridges

Common Challenges: Missing teeth can compromise your ability to chew and speak correctly, leading to shifting surrounding teeth, which may cause further oral health issues.

Tailored Solutions: Our dental bridges are custom-designed to fit seamlessly into the unique contours of your mouth.

Crafted from high-quality materials, these bridges mimic the appearance and function of natural teeth and are anchored securely to neighboring teeth or implants.

Positive Outcomes: Patients who opt for our dental bridge solutions enjoy restored functionality, improved aesthetics, and enhanced oral health.

Bridges help prevent the shifting of adjacent teeth and maintain the natural shape of your face and smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some FAQs to help you understand what to expect when being treated with a dental bridge at Sarasota Dental Arts.

What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth definitively to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
How do dental bridges work?

Dental bridges span the gap where teeth are missing. They are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space. These teeth, called abutments, serve as anchors for the bridge.

A replacement tooth, called a pontic, is attached to the crowns that cover the abutments.

What are the benefits of dental bridges?
Dental bridges offer several benefits including restoring your smile, improving your ability to chew and speak properly, maintaining the shape of your face, and preventing remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
How long do dental bridges last?
With proper care and maintenance, dental bridges can last 5-15 years or even longer. Regular checkups and good oral hygiene can help ensure the longevity of your bridge.
Are dental bridges noticeable?
Our dental bridges are designed to look like your natural teeth in color, shape, and size, making them virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
How do I care for my dental bridge?
Care for your bridge by brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice a day and flossing daily. Special floss tools and interdental brushes can help clean hard-to-reach areas around the bridge.
What materials are used in dental bridges?
Dental bridges can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramics, or metal alloys covered in porcelain, which are selected for their aesthetic qualities and durability.
How many visits does it take to get a dental bridge?
Typically, getting a dental bridge requires two visits: one for preparing the abutment teeth and taking a mold, and a second to fit and place the bridge.
Is getting a dental bridge painful?
The procedure for installing a dental bridge is usually performed with anesthesia and is not painful. There may be mild soreness or discomfort after the anesthesia wears off, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relief.
How much does a dental bridge cost?

The cost of a dental bridge varies depending on the number of teeth needed to fill the gap, the materials used, and other factors specific to the case.

We provide detailed estimates and discuss all costs and payment options during your consultation.
