If you have between one and three consecutive missing teeth, you may benefit from a dental bridge. Dr. C. Mike Meek and Dr. David J. Tasch offer both traditional and implant-supported dental bridges at their Austin, TX, practice. A traditional bridge will attach to your natural teeth with crowns. An implant-supported bridge will attach to titanium implants for the ultimate in strength and stability. At 38th Street Dental, we use the latest restorative materials. Therefore, no matter what type of bridge you receive, the restoration will have a beautifully lifelike color and sparkle.
What Are Dental Bridges?
Dental bridges are larger restorations, made up of several attached crowns. They are designed to fill in the gap left by one or more missing teeth. In this way, a bridge can restore both your appearance and your dental function. At 38th Street Dental, we are particularly proud of our implant-supported bridges. Because dental implants will replace your tooth roots, the attached bridge will not slip out of place. Neighboring teeth do not need to be reduced or reshaped for placement of a dental implant bridge, and implants will prevent bone loss. In turn, this type of bridge can save you a significant amount of money, since you will not typically need to have it replaced or adjusted three or four times across your life like a tooth supported bridge.
