What are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are a proven solution for replacing missing teeth, designed to restore your smile's function and appearance. They consist of artificial teeth (pontics) anchored by crowns on adjacent teeth or implants, forming a "bridge" across gaps. Bridges can be crafted from materials like porcelain, ceramics, or metals, chosen to blend with your natural teeth in color and durability.

The installation process typically requires two visits: one for tooth preparation and impressions, and another for fitting the custom bridge. Beyond aesthetics, bridges improve chewing and speech and prevent other teeth from shifting. With proper maintenance, they offer a long-lasting, cost-effective option for filling tooth gaps.

Our dental team will guide you through choosing the most suitable bridge, considering factors like gap location and oral health, to ensure a natural look and comfortable fit.

Do I Qualify For Dental Bridges

While one of our highly skilled Louisville based dentists will ultimately be able to suggest the right restorative solution for you, here are some factors they will likely take under consideration:

  • State of Natural Teeth/Gums
    • The health of the surrounding teeth and gums is important for the success of a dental bridge placement to last long term. If you’ve recently had a tooth extracted, you may need to wait a few months for the gum and underlying bone to heal.
  • Amount of Missing Teeth
    • If you have a few adjacent missing teeth, a dental bridge is an ideal solution. For a single missing tooth, you might consider a dental implant and for a large quantity of missing teeth or spaced out gaps, you may benefit from dentures.
  • Age
    • Dentists do not typically place bridges on children since their teeth are still in development. When a child’s jaw and teeth are fully mature, they can have a dental bridge placed if that is the optimal solution.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Bridges?

  • Maintain face shape
    • When you have gaps due to missing teeth, they no longer provide structural support for your face. Without this support, your facial contours may begin to shift, resulting in reduced definition and sagging skin.
  • Protect Teeth Alignment
    • Without prevention from a dental bridge or implant, the teeth around the gap are likely to move into the space - resulting in teeth alignment being thrown off and less straight smile.
  • Improve Bite
    • Because of the improvements to teeth alignment, the alignment of the bite as well can see improvement, leading to better chewing ability. 
  • Long-lasting 
    • With proper care, dental bridges can last up to 15 years! When the lifespan of a dental bridge reaches its end, your dentist can skillfully replace it with a new one to maintain the aesthetic of your smile

  • Good for a few missing teeth only
Dentures
  • Removable
  • Less Costly

Crowns & Bridgework

Dentistry is an art as well as a science; dental crowns offer a perfect example of this. A dental crown or “cap” is a covering that fits over a damaged, decayed, or unattractive tooth. It can even replace a tooth entirely as part of dental bridgework.

Dental Bonding

We are proud of the ways in which dentistry can restore broken or decayed teeth to full beauty and function. One of the easiest and least expensive ways of doing this is with dental bonding.

Dental Implants

Implants are made of titanium and have special coatings that encourage the fusing of human bone. The top of each implant has an internal screw channel so that crowns, bridges, and or dentures can be screwed in place.

Clear Aligners

Straighten your teeth with a clear alternative to metal braces. (For Example: Invisalign®)

Clear aligners are a removable, discreet orthodontic treatment. They consist of a series of trays that you wear for several weeks at a time. As your teeth gently move into position, you start using the next set of trays.

Botox and Dermal Fillers

Botox and Dermal Fillings, can also be used to treat some TMJ/TMD issues.

Dental Sealants

Sealants are a thin, protective coating that bonds to the surface of your teeth. When properly applied, sealants can help prevent cavities.

Dentures

Tooth loss is challenging on many levels. Not only can it affect what you eat and how you chew leading to more serious health concerns, it can also make you feel embarrassed and uncomfortable.

Fillings

Dental fillings are the most conservative way to restore smaller areas of tooth decay. In a dental expert's hands, these types of restorations can be made to conserve as much of your natural tooth as possible while providing a restoration that is almost indistinguishable from the natural tooth. Both resin and porcelain fillings can be adhesively bonded to your natural tooth to add strength.

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical endodontic treatment. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and involves opening the crown of the tooth, exposing the roots and pulp of the tooth. When the pulp and root is exposed the infected areas of the tooth are removed.

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.

Teeth Whitening

Let our team help you determine what whitening process is right for you, based on the current color and condition of your teeth.

Veneers

Our veneers are designed to look and fit naturally over your teeth. Remember, veneers are a permanent dental solution.
