What are Dental Bridges?

If you have lost one or more permanent teeth due to periodontal disease or injury you are not alone. Fortunately, as a dental patient, you have many options to replace the teeth, and Dr. Piero may recommend a dental bridge. A dental bridge literally will "bridge" the gap between two or more teeth.

A bridge is made of two or more custom-made porcelain crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap of the missing tooth. A false tooth, made up of porcelain or ceramic will the in created to fill the in-between gap.  Dental Bridges are supported by the dental patient's natural teeth or implants. Each dental bridge is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.

 

 

 

"I came to Dr. Piero because I had two missing teeth and I had pain in the right side of my mouth. He went over all of my options with me and put together a plan that I could afford and be happy with. I ended up with a beautiful dental bridge on the upper and an implant on the lower. He color matched my new teeth to my existing teeth. I love my smile now. Debbie his assistant was the nicest assistant ever. Love you guys.

Faq's about bridges

How do I maintain and care for my new Bridge
It's important to maintain the success of the bridge and to ensure the longevity of the foundation surrounding the tooth. Brushing twice a day and flossing help prevents tooth decay and gum disease which can lead to tooth loss.  Our dentist and hygienist will demonstrate how to properly floss your teeth.and it's crucial keeping regularly scheduled cleanings with Dr. Piero.

Durability - How long do they last? 
Bridges can last up to 10 years or even longer. Depending on good oral hygiene, It's not unusual to see a bridge last more than 15 years.

Cost
The cost will vary depending on the type of bridge and how many teeth need to be replaced. Typically the cost depends on the individual dental plan. Dental insurance will typically pay a percentage of the fee, but there is still some out of pocket expense.  Call for a free consultation.
