Dental Bridges in Vancouver

Are there gaps or spaces in your smile caused by missing permanent teeth? To restore the beauty and functionality of your smile, Columbia River Dentistry may recommend a dental bridge in Vancouver, Washington.

A dental bridge is an appliance that replaces missing teeth, thus bridging the gaps in your smile. To make a dental bridge, dental crowns are used for the teeth on either side of the space, which are called abutment teeth. A dental restoration is attached between these dental crowns. The following are reasons why our dentist may recommend a dental bridge:

  • Restore the beauty and functionality of your smile
  • Restore your ability to speak and chew properly
  • Maintain the shape of your face
  • Properly distribute your bite
  • Prevent your natural teeth from drifting

At Columbia River Dentistry, we offer patients only metal free dental bridges. There are three types of dental bridges:

  • Traditional Bridges: These types of bridges are the most common and are made from dental bridges with a replacement tooth in between.
  • Cantilever Bridges: This type of bridge is used when teeth are present on only one side of the gap.
  • Maryland Bonded Bridges: These are made of replacement teeth and gums supported by a framework. The framework has wings that are bonded to your natural teeth.
