Dental Bridges in Independence, Missouri

Enjoy A Complete Smile

Are you embarrassed by the open spaces in your smile? If you have one missing tooth or more than one missing teeth in a row, you can regain a healthy, beautiful smile with the help of a custom-fitted dental bridge.


What To Expect From Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a prosthetic, or teeth replacement device, that we use to restore your smile. Bridges consist of a series of connected dental crowns color-matched to your remaining teeth for a beautiful, natural-looking finish. Due to the nature of their design, bridges can only replace one tooth or multiple teeth in a row.
On either end of the bridge is a dental crown that fits over the tooth on either side of the open space in your mouth. We will permanently cement the bridge into your mouth. The remaining crowns that rest between the end crowns will rest against your gums, replacing your missing teeth.
