If you are missing one or more teeth, then a dental bridge can help make your smile whole. A bridge rests on your natural teeth or on dental implants for support and it suspends one or more false teeth over the spots where your missing teeth used to be. Dental bridges are also known as “fixed bridges” or even “fixed partial dentures” because they are permanently fastened in place to give you a secure and stable bite.
A gap in your smile is more than just an eyesore–it’s also a potential health concern. An empty space leaves room for the surrounding teeth to drift out of place. If they do, your remaining natural teeth can wind up in positions that predispose them to developing cavities or gum disease. A dental bridge is an excellent way you can both maintain the alignment of your teeth and enjoy a complete and confident smile.
Insurance coverage varies by company and benefit plan. At the time of your visit, a more accurate estimate can be given. Without insurance coverage, the out-of-pocket cost could be $5,000 or even $5,900.
