Smile Atlanta Center is proud to offer dental bridges in Johns Creek, GA, as a solution for patients looking to restore their smiles. Dental bridges are a time-tested, effective way to replace one or more missing teeth, bridging the gap and restoring both the functionality and appearance of your smile.

What Are Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge is a custom-made false tooth or teeth (pontic) that is anchored on either side by crowns placed on the natural teeth or dental implants. Bridges can be made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramics, or metal alloys, designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

  • Restored Smile: Fill in the gaps in your smile for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
  • Improved Functionality: Restore your ability to properly chew and speak.
  • Even Force Distribution: Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth.
  • Prevention of Dental Shifts: Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
  • Maintained Facial Shape: Support the natural contour of your face to prevent sagging.

Types of Dental Bridges

  • Traditional Bridges: The most common type, where crowns are created for the teeth on either side of the missing tooth, with a pontic in between.
  • Cantilever Bridges: Used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth.
  • Maryland Bridges: Consists of a pontic that is held in place by a metal or porcelain framework bonded onto the backs of the adjacent teeth.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges: Supported by dental implants rather than crowns or frameworks. This option is often considered the most stable and natural feeling.
