Dental Bridges

While dental implants are a fantastic choice to replace missing teeth, this option is not for everyone.

Instead, some patients at our Santa Fe dental clinic choose to get a dental bridge.


What Is a Dental Bridge?

If you need a replacement tooth, your dental bridge will be constructed of three teeth — one prosthetic tooth with a cap (also known as a crown) on either end.

This appliance is called a bridge because it bridges the gap in your teeth.

Our dentists attach the bridge by shaving down the teeth on either side of the gap. Then he cements the caps over your teeth.

At our Santa Fe dentist office, we also make removable bridges, which snap in like a retainer or denture, and can replace several missing teeth. A traditional bridge can also replace more than one tooth in a row.

Why Choose a Dental Bridge?

While dental implants are a better choice than dental bridges, there are some practical reasons the patients at our dental clinic in Santa Fe choose a dental bridge.

Although the cost of a dental implant and a dental bridge are similar, insurance rarely pays for dental implants, but it often pays a portion of the cost of a bridge.

Additionally, the cost is higher for patients who need a bone graft or orthodontics such as Invisalign before they can get their dental implant, and these can be avoided by choosing a dental bridge instead.

Dental Restorations

While our dental office recommends dental implants over dental bridges, the most important thing is that you get some type of tooth replacement.

Having missing teeth not only affects your ability to eat a wide variety of nutritious foods, but it also impacts your self-confidence. You may feel ashamed to smile and laugh if you have a missing tooth. You may not want to be in group pictures or pose for selfies. You may practice smiling with your lips closed.

A full set of teeth will allow you to show the world your beautiful smile!

Plus, the longer you wait to replace missing teeth, the higher the chances your other teeth will shift around, making replacement more challenging.

Your Dentists in Santa Fe

When you come to our Santa Fe dentist office, Dr. Devin Giron and Dr. Galen Detrik will evaluate you and recommend a dental replacement solution for you.

Like any procedure, there are optimal solutions, but our dentists understand that our patients need choices, and that is exactly what we give them.

If you live in the Santa Fe or surrounding area and have a missing tooth — or missing teeth — call and make an appointment today at our dental clinic. We can help you get your old smile back.
