Your One Stop Dental Private Practice in Colorado Springs, CO
A dental bridge is an excellent solution to replace a missing tooth and restore the teeth on either side if they need restorations. If the adjacent teeth are in excellent condition and do not need the repairs, Dr. Kimmelman would recommend the more conservative treatment of a dental implant-supported crown to replace the missing tooth. Additionally, a single tooth implant with a crown would be less expensive than a three-unit bridge at our downtown Colorado Springs dental office, being 1/3 the cost of our competitors.
If a traditional bridge is an appropriate treatment for you and you need two crowns placed over the adjacent neighboring teeth, we will place an artificial tooth between them to fill in the gap of the missing tooth.
To ensure an excellent fit and natural-like appearance, our dental bridges are fabricated with precision and artistry by master dental ceramists and then bonded to your teeth by Dr. Kimmelman.
Porcelain dental bridges can:
- Fill in the gap of a missing tooth
- Prevent the adjacent and opposing teeth from shifting out of their normal position allowing them to maintain proper alignment and bite
- Treat several teeth with one procedure
- Is permanently cemented and stays in the mouth
