Project Description

Dental Bridges

iSmile provides dental bridges to replace missing teeth and restore your smile and your healthy bite. Call our office today to learn more about dental bridges in Utah and Arizona and schedule your consultation with our experienced dentists.

If you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth in a row, we may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration, meaning it is non-removable. The dental bridge is anchored in place by using two dental crowns, which are custom made to fit your smile and are placed on the teeth or dental implants next to the space left by the missing tooth. These crowns hold the artificial tooth in place to restore your smile, ensuring that your restoration will not shift or come loose. Think of the bridge tooth as a “floating” prosthetic tooth. Dental bridges typically require only two visits to our practice to complete a dental bridge. Dental bridges are designed to last for many years and restore your smile’s function, beauty, and health.

Our dentist may recommend a dental bridge to improve your smile by:

  • Restoring your ability to speak, eat and chew normally
  • Alleviating excess stress on the bite
  • Improving the shape and volume of your face
  • Replacing an unwanted removable partial denture
  • Preventing the remaining natural teeth from moving out of position
  • Enhancing the appearance of your smile

We will help you determine whether a custom dental bridge is the right choice for restoring your smile after tooth loss. For more information, please call or visit us today.

Is a dental bridge safer than a dental implant?2021-09-13T06:57:52-09:00

For patients with eradicating gum disease or poor dental bone health, a bridge can be a safe option. Since dental bridges do not require being implanted into the gum tissue they have less of an impact from gum disease.

How long can a dental bridge last?2021-09-13T06:49:11-09:00

Dental bridges can last an average of 5-15 years. However, with excellent care, strong oral hygiene, and routine oral cleanings and exams, some bridges have lasted over 15 years.

Does a dental bridge feel natural?2021-09-13T06:59:05-09:00

A dental bridge should feel quite real and as comfortable as your natural teeth did. For some patients who had large fillings, they say their bridge is more comfortable.
