I went here on a whim and I was SO happy I did. They were so easy to work with, the entire process was affordable, pain-free, comfortable, friendly. Truly, all the best things you would look for in a dentist. I came back again to get my teeth cleaned and it was so wonderful and relaxing. Which is odd because dentist offices don't usually inspire the word "relaxing." I will definitely be back.

Types of Dental Bridges

Just as a road bridge spans the two sides of a stream, a dental bridge or partial denture spans the space left by one to three missing teeth.

Traditional Dental Bridges

A traditional dental bridge is permanently secured in place with crowns that are placed on adjacent healthy teeth, which serve as the abutment teeth. The bridge can replace one or more teeth in a row, depending on how strong and healthy the neighboring abutment teeth are.

A typical bridge consists of two parts: the crowns, which hold the restoration in place; and the replacement tooth or teeth, called pontics. Each crown and pontic is designed to look natural. Dental bridges are a reliable restorative dentistry option, but they require reshaping of your teeth in order to accommodate the crowns.

Implant-Supported Bridges

Our dentists may recommend anchoring your bridge with dental implants instead of crowns. Implants can support crowns, bridges, and dentures.

The titanium posts are surgically anchored into the jaw, serving as artificial tooth roots. Consequently, implant-supported bridges offer stable and long-lasting support, and they can halt the jawbone deterioration that follows tooth loss.

Best of all, your restorations look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. However, patients must have a certain amount of jawbone tissue to successfully support implants and qualify for this treatment option.

Treatment Timeline

Initial Appointment

Schedule your appointment at one of our offices in Layton, Murray, Lehi, or Bountiful to find out if dental bridges are right for you.

First Appointment

During your first appointment, the doctor will remove a small amount of enamel from the surfaces of the neighboring teeth and take impressions to send to our trusted off-site lab.

Bridge Fabrication

At the lab, a skilled technician can craft a restoration that is customized to the exact shape and measurements of your teeth.

Second Appointment

Once the custom bridge is finished, you can return for a second appointment, when one of our dentists will attach the bridge.

The Traditional Bridge Procedure

A traditional dental bridge is anchored with crowns attached to the top of the teeth neighboring the gap in your smile. 

How the Implant Bridge Treatment Process Differs

If you undergo the implant-supported bridge treatment option, the timeline will differ:

  1. The first dentistry appointment will involve surgical placement of dental implants.
  2. For the next three to six months, you will undergo a healing period in which the implants integrate with the surrounding bone tissue.
  3. Once the dental implants have integrated, you will undergo a procedure in which an abutment will be secured to each implant. This requires incising the gums.
  4. After about two weeks, patients can return to our dental offices to have the custom bridge placed.
