Restore Your Smile To Its Best Look

Dental bridges play a crucial role in revitalizing your smile and promoting long-term oral health. They effectively cover gaps, utilizing a false tooth supported by dental implants, natural teeth, or a combination of both. Commonly referred to as ‘fixed partial dentures’, these bridges are firmly bonded or cemented in place, ensuring convenience and ease in cleaning. Beyond the aesthetic benefits, filling tooth gaps is vital for maintaining overall oral health, as missing teeth can impede speech, chewing, and lead to undesirable teeth shifting.

Long Term Advantages to Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are designed to be durable and long-lasting, offering a reliable solution for tooth replacement. With proper care and regular dental check-ups, a well-maintained dental bridge can provide you with functional and aesthetic benefits for many years.

Comfort

Dental bridges offer a long-lasting solution for the discomfort caused by missing teeth. With proper care and maintenance, they can provide relief and functionality for more than ten years, ensuring your comfort and oral health.

Tooth and Joint Health

Alleviate Jaw Pain and TMJ Disorder: Missing teeth can cause jaw pain and contribute to the risk of tooth decay, periodontal disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. When teeth are absent, the remaining teeth may compensate by shifting, which can strain the jaw joint. A dental bridge prevents this shifting, reducing the potential for jaw pain and TMJ disorder.

Bone Health

The placement of a dental bridge helps stabilize the jawbone by providing support and preventing further bone deterioration. By filling the gaps left by missing teeth, a dental bridge aids in slowing down the rate of bone loss, promoting the long-term health of your jawbones.

Cost of dental bridges in Long Valley

Similar to most processes, the cost associated with dental bridges and their installation varies from patient to patient. Generally speaking, a typical insurance plan will cover some of the bridges’ cost and leave you with a remaining price-tag between $800 to $1,500. For those without insurance, a reasonable estimate for a bridge installation would stand somewhere between $2,000 to $3,000 and above.

Other factors which determine the cost of your dental crown:

  • The location in your mouth where the bridge is required
  • The amount of teeth which need replacement
  • The health and viability of the teeth which will support the bridge
  • The material utilized for the bridge and other equipment during the treatment
  • Requiring any additional treatments, such as dental implants

Remember, the only way we can provide you with an accurate estimate for a dental bridge is to get a firsthand look at your smile and its situation. Once an estimate is given, you may submit this quote to your insurance company (if applicable) to become aware of the remaining costs you’re responsible for before making any decisions!

Frequently Asked Questions

There are various categories of dental bridges available, namely permanent and semi-permanent bridges. Dental bridges, also known as fixed partial dentures, are considered semi-permanent as they are affixed to existing teeth or implants. One can easily distinguish a bridge from a denture by observing that bridges remain in place while dentures are removable. Bridges consist solely of teeth, whereas dentures include the presence of pink gums.

It takes about 2 appointments and around 1 hour in total to install a bridge.

Dental bridges can be fabricated using different materials, including gold alloys, non-precious alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. At our practice, we primarily utilize porcelain for our dental bridge procedures.

A dental crown, on its own, cannot serve as a replacement for a missing tooth. The term “crown” refers to a dental cap that mimics the appearance and function of a natural tooth. However, for proper support, a crown requires anchorage either from a prepared existing tooth, a partial tooth with a post, or a dental implant positioned inside and below the gum line. These supportive structures are essential to ensure stability and functionality for the crown.

Cazes Family Dentistry is the most wonderful place for your teeth!! :-) I have some anxiety surrounding dental work, and they are just so wonderful. Courtney is the best dental hygienist- she is kind and calm; she will slow down if anything becomes too much, and she is so understanding and patient. She’s also really nice to chat to beforehand. Dr. Emma- what can I say about my favorite dentist? Dr. Emma got me over my initial fear when I brought my then 5 year old to her. She was so good with my daughter that when I found out she took adults I felt comfortable confessing that it had been YEARS since I had gone to the dentist. We worked through my anxiety and her positive attitude, kindness, and compassion has kept me coming back consistently over the last two years. I hope you consider Cazes for all your dental needs!
