Tooth loss, whether due to trauma, decay, or other reasons, can significantly impact your oral health and self-esteem. At Tolland Hill Family Dental, we understand the importance of replacing missing teeth not only for aesthetic reasons but also to maintain the overall health and functionality of your mouth. Our dental bridges are designed to seamlessly fill the gaps in your smile, using high-quality materials for durability and a natural appearance.

The Role of Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is an effective restorative solution for missing teeth that works by ‘bridging’ the gap created by one or more missing teeth. It consists of two main components:

  • Pontic: The prosthetic tooth or teeth that replace the missing tooth/teeth.
  • Abutments: The supporting teeth on either side of the gap, which can be natural teeth or dental implants.

Types of Dental Bridges

At Tolland Hill Family Dental, we offer various types of dental bridges to suit different needs:

  • Traditional Bridges: Ideal for those with healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth. These involve creating crowns for the abutment teeth with a pontic in between.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges: Used when multiple teeth are missing. These bridges are anchored to dental implants for superior stability.
  • Prettau® Implant Bridge: A premium option for implant-supported bridges, known for its strength and aesthetic appeal.

Customization Teeth Replacement for a Natural Look

Our dental bridges are customized in color, shape, and size to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. This customization ensures that your new bridge enhances your smile’s appearance while restoring its function.

The Process of Getting a Dental Bridge

Getting a dental bridge typically involves:

  1. Preparation of Abutment Teeth: Shaping the teeth or placing implants that will support the bridge.
  2. Impressions: Creating a model of your teeth for the custom fabrication of the bridge.
  3. Temporary Bridge: Fitting a temporary bridge to protect exposed teeth and gums while the permanent bridge is made.
  4. Fitting the Permanent Bridge: Adjusting and cementing the final bridge into place.

What Our Patients Say

Never had I had so much attention paid to my whole mouth health. Performed mouth cancer checks and measured gum gaps (didn't know this was a thing). A lot of time with doctor, not just the hygienist. Explained everything they were doing and why.
Daniel Keener
The team at this office was very kind, understanding, patient and persistent in working with my child. She is highly anxious at the dentist and they took their time to help her through the experience. Would highly recommend them to others!
