Dental bridge covering a gap between teeth - Harmony Family Dentistry in Vancouver WA

Don’t Let a Missing Tooth Get in the Way of Your Smile!

A gap of multiple missing or decayed teeth can leave you feeling less confident and attractive than you should. Fortunately, a dental bridge – a prosthetic device that “bridges” a gap created by a missing tooth or adjacent missing teeth – is an easy and effective option. At Harmony Family Dentistry, we recommend bridges to many patients looking for a simple and cost-effective restorative dental solution. 

Call Harmony Family Dentistry today to schedule a dental bridge consultation in our comfortable and state-of-the-art Vancouver WA office.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Bridges?

The advantage of dental bridges is that they’re a simple solution that looks good. It’s a less invasive procedure than dental implants or All-on-4s, and unlike dental crowns, they can be used to cover more than one tooth.

Dental bridges provide a range of benefits to patients:

  • Beautifies your smile: With a missing tooth, you may be less inclined to smile. Dental bridges use realistic-looking artificial teeth that match your other teeth so that you can flash a smile without anyone being able to tell you have bridges.
  • Protects your teeth’s alignment: When there is an empty space between your teeth, the adjacent teeth naturally start to drift toward the openness. Hence, a bridge can protect the straightness of your teeth.
  • Restores your bite: Chewing can be a challenge with a missing tooth, and you may do long-term damage to your biting motion by trying to avoid chewing food in an area with a missing tooth. With a bridge, you can eat normally again without developing jaw pain.
  • Improves your speech: Often, having a missing tooth leads to slurring or a speech impediment. By replacing a missing tooth, you should hear your normal speech return.

Dental Bridge Options We Offer

At Harmony Family Dentistry, we offer a few types of bridges. After examining your mouth, we’ll recommend the best type for your situation.

  • Fixed Bridge: The most common kind of bridge is the fixed bridge. Dr. Julie Jang attaches crowns to your teeth on both sides of the gap in your mouth. These crowns hold the prosthetic tooth (or row of prosthetic teeth) in place, thereby filling in the hole.
  • Cantilever Bridge: A cantilever bridge is similar to a fixed bridge, except that it only relies on a single crown to hold the prosthetic teeth in place. While this makes the cantilever bridge a moderately less secure option, it is a good compromise if you don’t have teeth on both sides of the gap where crowns can be attached. You may also prefer to have fewer crowns overall.
  • Maryland Bridge: Instead of using crowns, Dr. Julie Jang can provide a Maryland bridge, which uses a porcelain structure to attach to your natural teeth and hold the prosthetic piece in position. For this option, you must have natural teeth on both sides of the gap.
  • Implant-Supported Bridge: Another crown-free option is to use dental implants to secure your bridge. This is a more involved and somewhat more expensive option compared to other bridges, but it is a way to get the security of dental implants without needing to replace each missing tooth individually.
