Dental Bridges

You’ve had impeccable oral hygiene all your life. Yet, here you are missing a tooth, maybe even more than one. Perhaps a dental bridge is the answer for you. Come in for a consultation with our team of experienced, skilled dental professionals and let us restore your smile as well as your confidence with dental bridges in Naples, FL.

What is a bridge?

A bridge is a dental restoration that bridges the space left by one or more missing teeth. It’s made of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the space (abutment teeth) and a new manmade tooth or teeth in between. These artificial teeth are called pontics and are usually made of porcelain, gold, alloys or a combination.

Dental Bridges Naples, FL
Unprecedented. Perfection. Star Ship Enterprise environment. Never seen anything like it and I've seen a lot. I'm the absolute worst dental chicken and I had zero fear...and I appreciate that. BayView Dental Arts is the gold standard if that's what you are looking for. King S.

What can I expect from the process?

In many cases, a bridge may be completed in one visit using our Cerec in -office Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacture (CAD/CAM) technology. However, if two visits are required here is what to expect:

  • First visit – We will take a digital scan using a camera to create a digitized map and model for your bridge, pontic and crowns, which will be made at our dental lab. We’ll also make you a temporary bridge to wear until your next visit.
  • Second visit – We will remove the temporary bridge to place your permanent restoration and ensure that you leave feeling comfortable with a functional smile!

All three of our doctors have advanced training and expertise to create beautiful smiles. To see how a dental bridge in Naples can improve yours, please call us to schedule a consultation.
