Dental Bridges

If you are missing one or more teeth, you may be struggling to eat and speak and may feel self-conscious about the gap in your smile.

Our Westfield, MA, practice provides both traditional and implant-supported dental bridges to repair patients' oral health. 

Why are dental bridges such an effective treatment?

Restore Function & Aesthetics  to Your Smile

Eat & Speak Naturally

A dental bridge can replace up to three missing teeth in a row. Closing the gap in your smile can restore natural function, allowing you to eat and speak properly

Achieve Realistic Results

Dental bridges are made using natural-looking materials that are designed to fit seamlessly into your smile. Our doctors will carefully design your bridge for realistic results.

Superior Results with Implants

Your dental bridge can also be secured by dental implants which are surgically placed in the jaw. An implant-supported bridge leaves nearby teeth intact and protects against jawbone resorption.

"Hands down the best and only dentist I will ever go to. Everyone there is nice and very careful I’ve never had a bad experience there and I absolutely hate the dentist. They are the best and I can’t thank them enough." Kyle M.

Should I choose a traditional or implant-supported bridge?

Implant-Supported Dental Bridges Are Highly Recommended for Qualifying Patients

In addition to closing the gap in your smile, implant-supported dental bridges also prevent jawbone atrophy. Since bone recession contributes to further tooth loss, this is an invaluable benefit. Our doctors highly recommend that patients at our Westfield practice receive an implant-supported bridge if they qualify to help prevent the need for extensive restorative treatments. Additionally, by securing your bridge with implants, we will not need to alter the surrounding teeth to support crownspreserving their strength and structural integrity. However, not every patient is a candidate for dental implants. During a consultation, your dentist can determine whether you have sufficient jawbone density for dental implant treatment.

Implant-supported bridges are anchored in the jawbone, providing stability and stimulating the tissue.

Dental Bridge FAQs

What does a bridge consist of?

A bridge consists of pontics (fabricated teeth) that replace natural teeth that have been lost due to trauma or decay. Traditional bridges are held in place using dental crowns placed on adjacent teeth. Implant-supported bridges are attached to dental implants, eliminating the need to crown healthy teeth.

How long does it last?

A bridge can last five to 15 years with proper care. The better your oral hygiene, the longer your restoration will likely last. Just make sure to brush twice and floss at least once daily, and see your dentist every six months.

Are they expensive?

It depends. A full implant-supported denture made of premium materials will cost more than a traditional bridge made of the most affordable materials. However, if you have insurance, you can expect that your plan will contribute to at least a portion of the cost.
