Fill gaps caused by 1 to 3 missing teeth

A dental bridge restores the appearance and health of your mouth by covering spaces with a false tooth supported by either dental implants, your natural teeth, or a combination of both. Sometimes referred to as a ‘fixed partial denture’, bridges are bonded or cemented to your teeth and do not need to be removed to sleep or to clean them. Filling tooth gaps is important, not just for appearances, but for your long-term oral health. Missing teeth can make it difficult to speak or chew food and, with a gap, other teeth are free to shift around.

Long-lasting benefits of dental bridges

A missing tooth or teeth can leave us feeling self-conscious and uncomfortable. A dental bridge is a great way get your smile looking and feeling normal again, but it also offers long term benefits for your other teeth and the bone health of your mouth. To sum it up, here are the advantages of a dental bridge:

Comfort

These are the obvious advantages because they affect us right now. Feel and look normal again. Smile and eat with confidence and get back the smile you know and love. Missing teeth just don’t feel great and sometimes gaps make it difficult or painful to speak or eat. Dental bridges are a long-lasting solution to discomfort caused by missing teeth – more than ten years with proper care.

Tooth health

Your teeth support each other and contribute to your facial structure. Missing teeth can alter your bite and leave space for other teeth to shift around. A dental bridge blocks teeth from shifting around reducing the risk of decay, periodontal disease, jaw pain and TMJ disorder caused by rogue teeth.

Bone health

Healthy, stable teeth encourage healthy jawbones. As our dental health diminishes so does the health of bone and tissues that support our teeth. Stabilizing your dental health with a dental bridge will slow the rate of bone loss from your missing teeth.

The cost of a dental bridge in Brantford

The cost of a dental bridge can vary widely from patient to patient. With a typical insurance plan, a dental bridge averages out to about $800 to $1200+. Without insurance, a reasonable ball-park figure for a bridge would be about $2000 to $3000 and up.

    What goes into determining the cost of a dental bridge?
  • The type of bridge and the material used to make it.
  • The number of teeth that are missing.
  • The location and complexity of the procedure.
  • The condition of the teeth adjacent to the gap.
  • Supplies and equipment that are required for your specific treatment.

Remember, no dental practice can provide an accurate quote over the phone. Ultimately, your needs are as unique as your smile. It’s important to speak with a dentist and undergo an oral exam to find out all your treatment options and to receive an accurate quote. If you have dental insurance, we would be happy to supply you with a quote to submit to them so you can find out your out-of-pocket costs before you make a decision.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are different types of dental bridges – permanent and semi-permanent. Bridges are sometimes referred to as fixed partial dentures because they are semi-permanent and are bonded to existing teeth or implants. The easiest way to tell the difference between a bridge (which stays put) and a denture (which is removable) is that bridges are just the teeth whereas dentures have those pink gums.
Cantilever bridges are used when there aren’t adjacent teeth on both sides of the missing teeth. They aren’t very common anymore and aren’t recommended in the back of the mouth where it can apply too much force to other teeth and damage them. If your missing teeth are in the back of your mouth, there are other solutions available.
The process usually takes two appointments with each appointment lasting less than an hour.
Bridges can be constructed from gold alloys, non-precious alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. We primarily use porcelain for our dental bridge procedures.
Sometimes, people use the terms dental bridge and crown interchangeably. The reality is they have different functions. Dental crowns are prosthetic caps that are placed over broken, chipped, or worn teeth. They are effective in strengthening the teeth and preventing tooth decay. Dental bridges are designed to bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
A crowns, all by itself, cannot replace a missing tooth. The crown refers to a dental cap that looks and feels like a tooth but it needs to be supported inside and beneath the gum line by either an existing and prepared tooth, a partial tooth with a post or a dental implant.
Bridges can be made of Zirconia. Ask us for more information and we would be happy to show you what materials are available and what our recommendations are for your specific needs.

Dr. Essam Gobrial is a friendly, compassionate professional who helps reduce my anxiety during dental procedures. Also what I appreciate is that he calmly explains to me at what stage of the process he is at during the procedure & letting me know how much longer I need to keep my mouth opened. He also gives me rest periods when needed to relieve jaw pain. He is patient & answers my questions as well as showing me my Xrays. His dental team are friendly and recognize me by name upon enteting office. They R patient explaining bill payments & appointments. Dr. Sam always walks me back to the front desk & takes time for quick chat he is very personable which increases the feeling of trust. I highly recommend this dental office...

This is absolutely the best place both in work done and their incredible customer service. I have been going here for 20 years and will never change. We even moved to Delhi four years ago with no questioning or thoughts at all about switching to a place closer. I can honestly say that Dr Marianne Ghanime has literally changed my life. I was very insecure and feeling uncomfortable with my smile and how my teeth were and I couldn’t afford braces or have coverage for them but with her incredible gift and thinking outside the box she helped to create and give me the most beautiful smile ever. Now I can’t stop smiling. In seeing her work after she finished it literally brought me to tears in a very good way. I know some may say oh it’s cosmetic but it was life changing for me and gave me confidence I didn’t have before getting this done. I call her my angel and she truly is. She does incredible work and truly cares. Thank you for all that you do 🙏💞💞💞💞
