Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are similar to tooth crowns in that they are protective covers or caps, made from porcelain or ceramic that fit over your existing teeth to mask defects such as cracks, chips, or discoloration. Dental bridges are usually recommended when you are missing one or more teeth. Bridges span the space where the teeth are missing.

Like with dental crowns, you have a choice of materials for bridges. Dr. Naini can help you decide which would be best for you, depending upon the location of the missing tooth (or teeth), its function, aesthetic considerations and cost.

Porcelain or ceramic bridges can also be matched to the exact color of your natural teeth. With her LVI training, Dr. Naini is skilled at creating and fitting dental bridges that are nearly indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Besides improving the appearance, shape or alignment of your teeth, a dental bridge can be used to strengthen damaged teeth. Dr. Naini may recommend a dental bridge to patients who have:

  • One or more missing teeth
  • Good oral hygiene practices

Bridges can reduce your risk of gum disease, help correct some bite issues and even improve your speech. Bridges require your commitment to good oral hygiene but will last as many as ten years or more. Good oral hygiene includes proper brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups.
