At Model Dentistry in Baton Rouge, we understand the impact that missing teeth can have on your life—from the way you eat and speak to how you feel about your smile. Dr. Timothy R. Raborn and our skilled team are dedicated to restoring your smile's function and aesthetics with high-quality dental bridges.

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth, bridging the gap between the remaining natural teeth. They are composed of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap (the anchoring teeth) and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are known as pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials.

Types of Dental Bridges Available

Traditional Bridges

Traditional bridges involve creating a crown for the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth with a pontic in between. This is the most popular type of bridge and is recommended for teeth that have natural teeth on both sides of the gap. Learn more about our crown services.

Cantilever Bridges

Used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth, cantilever bridges are another option, though less common than traditional bridges.

Maryland Bonded Bridges

These bridges consist of a pontic that is held in place by a metal or porcelain framework. This framework is bonded onto the backs of the two adjacent teeth. Because this type of bridge requires little alteration of the adjoining teeth, it is often used for front teeth. Explore our cosmetic dentistry services.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Dental bridges can help restore your smile and improve your facial aesthetics.
  • Functionality: Replacing missing teeth helps to distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth.
  • Prevent Shifting: They prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position, which could lead to further dental issues.
  • Durability: With proper care, dental bridges can last 5-15 years or even longer.
