Dental Bridges

Tailor-Made Dental Bridges

Tooth loss makes your smile incomplete in more ways than one. Your smile suffers from the lack of consistency, and the loss can lead to a hazardous imbalance in your bite. To reestablish your bite balance and revitalize the appearance of your smile, Dr. Lawson can custom-design a lifelike dental bridge to replace your lost tooth. A bridge may also be appropriate for more than one lost tooth if the teeth are adjacent to each other. Often made from lifelike dental porcelain, your bridge will blend in seamlessly and let you once again enjoy a full, beautiful, and fully functional smile.

Implant-Supported Bridges

Made from an appropriate number of replacement teeth, or pontics, a bridge is supported by adjoining dental crowns that are bonded to the healthy, natural teeth bordering the gap in your smile. However, for many patients, Dr. Lawson may suggest supporting a dental bridge on dental implants rather than modifying healthy teeth. Dental implant posts, which are surgically placed into your jawbone, offer highly lifelike support for your bridge, similar to the roots of your healthy teeth. With an implant bridge, you can enjoy the benefits of replacing your lost teeth while preserving a maximum amount of your healthy tooth structure.

If you’ve lost one or more teeth, then find out if a traditional or implant-supported bridge can rebuild your smile! Call Lawson Family Dentistry in Urbandale, IA, today at 515-278-4366.
