Dental Bridges – Branford, CT

A Cost-Effective Way to Recomplete Your Smile

If you have lost one or more teeth, it is important that you fill in the empty space. Without tooth replacement, your remaining natural teeth may drift out of place, leading to painful misalignment and the risk of further tooth loss. You may also find yourself embarrassed by the gaps in your smile. At New Haven Dental Group in Branford, we offer numerous ways to restore lost teeth, including durable and long-lasting dental bridges.


What Is a Dental Bridge?

There are a few different types of dental bridges. The most common type is known as a traditional bridge or fixed bridge. It is a multi-unit prosthetic that has a crown on each end. The crowns get placed on top of the teeth adjacent to the empty space, called the abutment teeth. The crowns support between one and three pontics between them.

In addition to offering traditional bridges, we also provide implant-supported bridges, which get all of their strength from dental implants rather than abutment teeth.

As mentioned above, dental bridges are among the more affordable tooth replacement options. Our team will be happy to provide you with an estimate when you come in for your restorative consultation. Your bridge’s price will depend on which materials are used to make it, how many teeth it will replace, and whether it is a traditional or implant-supported prosthetic. Often, dental insurance covers roughly half the cost of bridges.
