Dental Bridges in Elk Grove and Davis
Natural-Looking, Durable Dental Bridges
A dental bridge is series of connected crowns that are used to fill in a gap left by one or more missing teeth. The outer crowns on each end of the bridge are placed over the natural teeth adjacent to the gap, giving the bridge its support. Although there are some disadvantages to receiving a dental bridge, it is an economical and fast option for tooth replacement in the short term, and requires no surgery.
Dr. Chantry and Dr. Alvarado are both very skilled and experienced at designing and placing dental bridges. They can fabricate bridges from a variety of top-quality materials. No matter which materials are used, your bridge is always made to be durable and long-lasting, and fit in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Our High-Quality, Aesthetic Dental Bridges
Our doctors make sure that your new bridge is natural-looking and blends in well with the rest of your smile. They place the bridge in such a way that it appears to emerge naturally from below your gumline, rather than sitting “on top.” Their aim is to make the restoration look as much like natural teeth as they possibly can, so that people won’t be able to tell you even have a bridge. They will also make sure that your new bridge is easy to clean.
Dental Bridge vs. Dental Implant
Dr. Chantry considers dental implants to be the most lifelike and durable replacement option in the long term. Dental implants form a strong foundation for an artificial tooth and eliminate the need for cutting down and compromising adjacent teeth (which could lead to complications later). With proper care, a dental implant can last a lifetime.
Dental bridges are a faster and, initially, more economical option for tooth replacement. They can be a suitable option when the teeth adjacent to the gap are already in bad shape and need crowns themselves.
