Dental Bridges in Medford, OR
Better Than Dentures! Dental Bridges Are Permanent
What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a modern-day solution for one or multiple missing teeth and is often viewed as a better alternative to a removable partial denture. A dental bridge is fixed in place (non-removable) and very durable. Custom-made bridges are also highly esthetic and look as beautiful and natural as your original missing tooth or teeth. Unlike dentures, dental bridges are very secure and allow you to eat the foods you love. They also promote healthy gums and prevent bone loss — something quite common in patients who wear dentures.
Here’s how it works: Using teeth on either side of your missing tooth, a bridge holds a replacement tooth in place. This process effectively “bridges” the gap in your mouth, restoring the beauty, health, and function of your smile.

What To Expect From a Dental Bridge Treatment
Step 1: Preparation
Your neighboring teeth are prepared to act as the anchor for your dental bridge. At times, this includes a dental implant placement.
Step 2: Restoration Creation
A temporary bridge is placed while your final restoration is carefully crafted to perfectly fit your mouth and smile.
Step 3: Placement
Once your custom-made restoration is ready, the finished bridge is bonded into place. Your smile will be back to new!
