If you are embarrassed to smile because of a missing tooth or you are concerned about the dental bridge cost, top Miami dentist and wellness expert, Dr. Julio Hernandez is the man for you! With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Julio will help you determine if you are a good candidate for a dental bridge.

Dental Bridges vs. Implants

Dental Bridges

When one or more teeth are missing and there are healthy teeth on both sides of the open space, Dr. Julio will consider whether a dental bridge or an implant is best suited to replace the missing teeth.

Dental bridges can be made from three types of material:

  • Solid gold for reliable long wear
  • Porcelain fused to a metal base for strength and beauty
  • And high-strength metal-free porcelain for optimum cosmetic results

With proper care, your new bridge will increase your overall health and instill confidence for years to come!

Dental Implants

Dental implants, on the other hand, don’t affect the adjacent teeth. When there is enough bone to support an implant, the option of a dental implant is preferred over a bridge.

Dental implants are strong and secure and not only replace the missing teeth but also maintain the level of the bone over time. Dental implants are generally easier to clean and maintain when compared to dental bridges.

There are benefits and drawbacks to every procedure, including dental bridges.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Bridges?

There are several advantages of dental bridges.

Dental bridges:

  • Are aesthetically pleasing
  • Are permanently cemented
  • Restore your smile
  • Restore the ability to speak and chew properly
  • Improve shape of the face
  • Distribute the forces in your bite properly
  • Prevent remaining teeth from moving out of position

What Are the Disadvantages of Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges:

  • Require reduction of teeth adjacent to space to hold the bridge
  • Have a high initial cost
  • And you cannot floss between teeth

Replacing one missing tooth requires a 3-unit tooth bridge or 3 crowns. Dental bridges are best prescribed when the teeth adjacent to the space are damaged, decayed or broken. The damaged teeth are prepared by eliminating tooth structure.

A digital impression is taken of the prepared teeth and the missing space and a temporary bridge is immediately fabricated. The digital impression is then sent to the lab to custom make the bridge in the material selected by the doctor.

After fabrication, the bridge is cemented to the prepared teeth. Bridges help restore the natural beauty and health of teeth. If you are embarrassed about your smile or you are having a hard time chewing due to missing teeth, come in for a free consultation.
