When you are missing one or more teeth, you may find yourself struggling with meals and hiding away your smile.
Drs. John D. Meola, Elise Vincelette, and Ryan Blissett can restore your smile and confidence with a natural-looking dental bridge.

Why Replace Missing Teeth?
Enjoy All Your Favorite Foods
Even when you are missing just one tooth, it can be hard to eat certain meals and enjoy crunchy and chewy foods. A dental bridge will restore your missing teeth and dental function allowing you to eat a full, well-balanced diet.
Prevent Oral Health Problems
A gap in your smile can cause other teeth to shift out of place, disrupting the balance of your bite. A bridge helps you maintain alignment in your teeth and jaw, and avoid future health conditions like gum disease. Bridges supported by dental implants are even more beneficial, preventing serious conditions like bone recession.
Improve How You Look and Feel
Our dental bridges are hand-crafted from the highest-quality porcelain to blend in seamlessly with your smile. A full set of natural-looking teeth can make you appear younger, healthier, and more attractive, which can dramatically improve your confidence and self-esteem.

Types of Dental Bridges
Traditional Dental Bridges
Traditional dental bridges are secured by two dental crowns on either side of the gap left by missing teeth. They usually contain one to three pontics that rest above the gumline, filling the gap in your smile.
Dental implant-supported bridges are anchored by titanium posts inserted in the jawbone, rather than by crowns on the natural teeth. The implants actually replace the missing tooth roots and provide a permanent foundation for your prosthetic.

What If I'm Missing Several Teeth?
A bridge will typically support up to three or four pontics. If you have more missing teeth, you might be a better candidate for a partial denture. A partial denture is supported by metal clasps secured around your natural teeth. Unlike bridges, partial dentures can fill in multiple gaps in your smile.
