What is a Dental Bridge?
If you are facing partial tooth loss, then a dental bridge is an ideal solution for restoring your smile. Dental bridges literally “bridge” the gap between two remaining teeth that have been stabilized with crowns to provide support for the replacement tooth or teeth in-between.
Without these supporting anchor points on either side of your new prosthetic, it would be impossible to secure and maintain its position within your mouth. So if you have strong enough teeth still intact next to the gap caused by missing ones, then we can use them as anchors so that you gain back your complete smile!

Why Should I Get a Dental Bridge?
Types Of Dental Bridges
When it comes to bridges, there are three distinct varieties:
A traditional or fixed bridge is a popular way to restore an individual’s smile when one or more teeth are missing. This type of bridge involves attaching two crowns on each side of the gap with a false tooth, known as a pontic, in between them. Fixed bridges can be made from porcelain fused to metal alloy or ceramics and are often used for cosmetic reasons.
Resin-bonded bridges, also known as Maryland-bonded bridges are the ideal choice for front teeth and are far more cost effective than traditional fixed bridges. These dental treatments necessitate little preparation of the neighboring teeth whilst still securing a false tooth in place with resin to metal bands which remain hidden from view. When your adjacent teeth are healthy without any large fillings present, this procedure is recommended!
These bridges are ideal for parts of the mouth that don’t experience a lot of pressure, such as molars. If you only have teeth on one side of an open space, cantilever bridges can provide exceptional results.

Treatment with Ace Dental of Texas
In order to determine if you are an ideal candidate for a dental bridge procedure, dentists at Ace Dental will analyze your oral health and any available x-rays. We then creates a detailed plan that takes into account the structure of adjacent teeth so that they can securely support the bridge. With this thorough approach, our dentist can confidently ensure successful placement of your new dental bridge!
At out dental office, we will first create an impression of the patient’s teeth in order to fabricate a dental bridge at the laboratory. This bridge generally consists of a metal framework covered with porcelain for enhanced aesthetics, and is held together by adhesive cement once it has been accurately fitted onto the patient’s mouth. By taking extra care to ensure that each piece fits perfectly, our dental facility promises only beautiful results!
Dental Bridge Procedure
The dental bridge procedure is a complex and multi-step process:
- Upon your initial consultation, the teeth adjacent to the missing one will be reshaped in order for a crown to fit over them. Then, an impression of your dentition is taken and sent off to a lab where they craft precision dental pieces such as bridges, pontics, and customized crowns specific for you. To protect this area during fabrication time-frame your dentist may provide you with temporary bridgework that fits snugly over those prepared areas.
- During the second visit, your temporary bridge will be taken out and your permanent new one fitted. Depending on each person’s individual case, it could require multiple visits to make sure that both the metal framework and bite of the bridge is correct. We’ll adjust as necessary to acquire a perfect fit so you can walk away with an ideal result!
