Fixed Dental Bridges

Fixed Dental Bridges Gardena, CA

Do you feel self-conscious about a missing tooth? A dental bridge is a beautiful alternative to a dental implant for replacing a tooth and avoiding future oral health issues, such as tooth shifting and bite misalignment.

At Gardena Dental Care, we offer custom-made dental bridges that are uniquely fitted to you. Our dental bridges are a popular and affordable solution to fill in a missing tooth and restore the strength of your teeth.

What Are Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge is an artificial tooth that is anchored in place by wings or crowns that are attached to your neighboring teeth. The prosthetic tooth looks and acts just like your natural teeth. Our office offers three different forms of dental bridges:

  • Maryland Bonded Bridge: This option attaches the artificial tooth to porcelain wings instead of crowns. This is generally considered the least invasive choice.
  • Cantilever Bridge: A cantilever bridge is used when only one natural tooth is present for keeping an artificial tooth in place.
  • Traditional Bridge: This most popular bridge attaches the prosthetic tooth to special crowns which are affixed to your adjacent teeth.

Dental bridges are also called fixed bridges, because they are “fixed” in the mouth and are not removable like traditional dentures.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Bridges?

Fixed dental bridges are a fantastic way to replace missing teeth in a way that is secure and acts just like natural teeth. Here are some of the great benefits of dental bridges from Gardena Dental Care:

  • Provides a durable foundation for chewing by using the strength of your adjacent teeth
  • Dental bridges stay in place, so you don't have to worry about removing them
  • Helps keep your alignment and bite stable through the years
  • Gives you a restored smile that you can be proud of

Dental bridges are natural looking and will blend in with your adjacent teeth. People will not be able to tell you are wearing a fixed bridge just by looking at you.

What Is the Difference Between Dental Bridges and Dentures?

Fixed dental bridges differ from traditional dentures in that bridges are secured in place. Only the dentist will be able to remove your fixed bridge. You will simply brush and floss your teeth as normal to take care of your dental bridge.

Traditional dentures, on the other hand, are removable and require more maintenance. Dentures must be taken out to be cleaned and a special cleaning solution used. (Note: There are some types of modern dentures that can be fixed into place. We will be happy to discuss them with you if they are an option.)

How Long Do Dental Bridges Last?

Dental bridges are long-lasting and can last 15 years or more with careful maintenance. The average dental bridge lasts between 5 to 15 years, depending on the type of bridge used.

What Is the Process of Placing a Dental Bridge?

Initially, you will come in for an introductory visit, which will include an examination and consultation with our dentist, Dr. Omid Barkhordar, and necessary x-rays. We will next utilize our modern equipment and technology to create detailed impressions of your mouth. This will guarantee a perfect fit for your dental bridge. Dr. Barkhordar will then prepare your teeth for their wings or crowns, which provide the foundation for the fixed dental bridge.

We will initially fit you with a temporary bridge to protect the placement site until your permanent bridge is ready. After we carefully craft your customized dental bridge, you will come to our office and your bridge will be expertly placed.

How Much Does a Fixed Dental Bridge Cost in Gardena?

Fixed dental bridges may be covered, at least in part, by your dental insurance. If they are needed for a functional problem as opposed to being purely cosmetic, dental bridges are more likely to be covered.

The out-of-pocket cost for a dental bridge typically ranges from $500 to $1,500 per tooth. Costs may be different due to the patient’s needs, the form of dental bridge, and the material used (such as porcelain vs. metal in Maryland bonded bridges). At Gardena Dental Care, we offer payment plans and financing options to make everything convenient for you. Our staff will be happy to go over all your options.
