Dental Bridges Grand Rapids

Missing teeth in your smile can not only affect your self-esteem, but also your ability to speak and eat normally. Our Grand Rapids dentists use dental bridges to restore patients’ smiles after tooth loss and protect their oral health.

What Is a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges work by positioning a false tooth between two natural teeth or dental implants capped by dental crowns. The teeth on either side of the gap hold your false tooth in place so you can enjoy a beautiful smile.

At Lake Michigan Dental, we offer three different types of dental bridges:

  • Traditional: a false tooth held in place by dental crowns placed on the two teeth adjacent to the gap
  • Cantilever: a false tooth held in place by a dental crown placed on only one natural tooth adjacent to the gap
  • Maryland bonded: a false tooth held in place by a metal or porcelain framework bonded onto the back of the two teeth adjacent to the gap

Our patients appreciate that no matter which dental bridge they choose, they can expect a porcelain tooth restoration that matches the color of their natural teeth.
