Dental Bridges

Restore multiple missing teeth with a dental bridge.

Peak Dental Arts: Craig C Lanik DDS dental crowns

At Peak Dental Arts, we may recommend a dental bridge if you are missing multiple teeth because it acts as a “bridge” to replace the gap caused by the loss of those teeth. Typically, multiple missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth in your mouth to shift and move, causing longer-term issues with bite, chewing, and even your appearance.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is made with an artificial tooth that replaces your missing tooth, and it is “anchored” by two dental crowns that are fitted over healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth space.

During our dental exam and consultation, Dr. Lanik may recommend a bridge to prevent further damage to your surrounding teeth. He will discuss your treatment options with you based on your dental health status and goals.

Our Dental Bridge Process

Once Dr. Lanik recommends a bridge as part of your treatment plan, our team will take impressions of your mouth and teeth and send them to our local dental lab. We’ll communicate with our highly skilled lab technicians to create the crowns, artificial tooth or teeth specifically for your mouth.
At your next visit, we’ll fit your mouth with the bridge making adjustments as needed to snake a proper, functional fit.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dental Bridges

Your dental bridge can last many years if you take care of it properly; visit our office for regular exams and cleanings, and brush and floss daily.

Dental Cleanings & Exams

We can build a dental bridge to replace a maximum of four missing teeth, but most commonly, we build dental bridges to support two missing teeth.

We may recommend a dental implant as an option to replace your missing tooth. While dental implants take multiple appointments and more time than a bridge, they are a more permanent solution.
