With the help of our team, patients can replace teeth and enjoy a beautifully restored smile!

What are the different kinds of dental bridges?

In many dental practices, they may use dental bridges that include a metal framework. Unfortunately, these often stand out as an apparent dental restoration and are not nearly as aesthetic as the ceramic bridge for teeth replacement. While metal bridges work just as well, many patients want to avoid them, especially those with metal allergies. At The Center for Holistic Dental Medicine, Dr. MacFarlane offers ceramic bridges as a great alternative.

What are the benefits of dental bridges versus a dental implant?

Dental bridges may have a few advantages over dental implants when it comes to teeth replacement. A dental bridge:

  • Is more affordable than a dental implant
  • Does not require oral surgery
  • Is faster to place than implants and implant restorations
  • Is usually covered in part or whole by patient dental insurance plans
  • Does not require a healthy jawbone to place

Who is a candidate for a dental bridge?

Any patient with healthy adjacent teeth that can sufficiently support a dental bridge may be a great candidate for this treatment.
