How Do Dental Bridges Work?
A dental bridge is a fixed structure designed to match your teeth. It utilizes one or multiple artificial teeth with crowns at either end. These crowns attach to your natural teeth and act as bases to keep the bridge in place.
This results in a sturdy and visually appealing replacement tooth device that will be strong for years to come, rooted to your teeth. So get ready to smile like you mean it, as your bridge will be indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Countless customers come back amazed at how different they feel after getting dental bridges.

Why Would I Need a Dental Bridge?
When a patient has consecutive missing teeth, we need to take care of the issue. Different tooth replacement systems exist, all offering various benefits.
Dental bridges can be your best option, as they cover the entire space your missing teeth left. Some of the benefits include:
- Lowering your risk of contracting gum disease
- Improving your ability to speak clearly
- Rooting your remaining teeth in place
- Returning your smile to its old self
- Restoring your bite
- Acting as a permanent replacement (does not need removal like dentures)
The best way to learn what tooth-replacement system is best for you is to consult our dentists. We’ll assess your situation and teach you about dental crowns, bridges, and some of your other options like dental implants.
Dental Bridge Types and Styles
At Adina Family Dental Care, we offer a few different dental bridges in Rochester, NY depending on each customer’s needs. Below, we’ve outlined the three most common bridge types.
Traditional or Fixed Bridges
Fixed bridges are great for replacing either one or multiple missing teeth. Our dentists create a crown or implant on both sides of the gap, followed by a pontic (an artificial tooth) in the middle.
This is the most used bridge type. Materials used to create them include ceramic, porcelain, or metal.
Cantilever bridges work well in areas of the mouth with less stress, such as the molars or wisdom teeth. Our dentists recommend using these bridges when teeth are only on one side of the gap.
Typically, our dentists suggest these for missing front teeth. Likewise, resin-bonded bridges are less expensive than fixed bridges and are best when paired with healthy teeth without fillings.
A pontic is fused to metal bands using resin for this tooth-replacement system. This fixture is bonded to the teeth next to the gap, affixing behind your teeth and out of view.
What Does the Process Look Like?
First, your surrounding teeth are prepared, including removing some enamel to make space for the crowns.
To ensure the crowns, bridge, and pontic(s) all fit correctly, we tale an impression of your teeth that we’ll use for measuring. Making the bridge can take up to three weeks, during which the patient is given a temporary bridge to keep the exposed gap safe.
Finally, we replace the temporary bridge with the real deal. Our dentists will check to ensure all parts fit correctly, after which they will bond the tooth restoration treatment to your teeth.
