A dental bridge is an older style of dentistry used to replace a missing tooth. The tooth on either side of the missing tooth space are reduced for crowns,
and these crowns are welded together with an artificial tooth in the middle to create a bridge, 3 or more teeth in one piece that is then cemented into place.
At Smiles Dental we also offer dental implants to our patients. The national average for a bridge is about 10 years while an implant that is roughly the same cost last for 30 years or more.
