Of all the ways you can improve your smile appearance after losing a tooth, a dental bridge is a very affordable and stable cosmetic dentistry option. During your free consultation from the caring, skilled Aurora dentists at Aspenwood Dental Associates and Colorado Dental Implant Center, we can examine your teeth and gums and help you decide if a dental bridge is the best way to go. No matter how challenging your dental concerns may be, our creative team can match you with very natural-looking solutions that improve your dental health as well as your smile appearance.
Benefits of a Dental Bridge
You may be a good candidate for a dental bridge if you have one or more missing teeth. A custom false tooth will fill the space of the missing tooth. The two neighboring teeth will receive crowns which in turn provide stabilization for the artificial tooth. A natural tooth often supports dental bridges, but dental implants can be used as the foundation if necessary. A dental implant is also an excellent alternative to a dental bridge for replacing a missing tooth.
A dental bridge works best if the natural teeth bordering the gap are strong and healthy. In some cases, a root canal may be performed to fortify weakened or decayed natural teeth. During a dental bridge appointment, we will take an impression of your mouth to get proper measurements for your bridge design. The bridge is crafted by one of our skilled lab technicians and then bonded in place. If you take good care of your dental bridge, it can last seven years or longer.

At Aspenwood Dental Associates and Colorado Dental Implant Center, we are happy to provide smile makeover patients with a convenient, state-of-the-art lab for the personalized creation of top-quality dental bridges and dental crowns.
