Make Your Smile Whole Again
What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is a special device used by dentists to replace missing teeth. It’s like a bridge that fills in the gap where a tooth is gone. The bridge is made up of two parts: the crowns on each end and the artificial tooth in the middle. The crowns go on the teeth next to the gap and hold the artificial tooth in place. This way, it looks and works like a real tooth. Bridges can be made from different materials like metal, porcelain, or a mix of both. They’re important because they help people eat, talk, and smile like they used to, even if they’re missing a tooth.
How much does a dental bridge cost?
The cost of a dental bridge can vary depending on a few things. First, it depends on where you live and how much dental care typically costs in your area. Second, it depends on what kind of bridge you need and what materials it’s made from. For example, bridges made from different materials like metal or porcelain can have different costs. Finally, it also depends on how many teeth the bridge is replacing. Usually, a dental bridge can cost anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.

How long does a dental bridge last?
A dental bridge can last a pretty long time if you take good care of it. On average, they usually last around 5 to 15 years. But some can even last 20 years or more if you’re really careful about keeping them clean and seeing your dentist regularly. It’s important to brush and floss around your bridge just like you do with your natural teeth.
Also, going to your dentist for check-ups is crucial because they can catch any issues early on and help make sure your bridge stays in good shape. If you notice any problems with your bridge, like it feels loose or uncomfortable, it’s important to see your dentist right away so they can fix it.
