Gaps resulting from missing teeth are often left unresolved, but they can have an adverse effect on your overall health. Dental bridges offer an effective way to fill the gap and renew your smile.

At Boise Family Dental Care, we provide same-day dental bridge services using our CEREC™ machine. Learn more about the process and whether it’s right for you.

Reasons to Have a Dental Bridge Fitted

The gap created by a missing tooth or teeth can lead to a few dental complications, including:

  • Further tooth damage: The teeth on either side of the gap are exposed and susceptible to damage.
  • Jaw deterioration: A missing tooth no longer stimulates the jaw bone, resulting in bone deterioration over time.
  • Gum disease: The open socket in your gum can become infected and lead to gum disease.


About Our Dental Bridge Services

Whether you need a single-tooth replacement option or have multiple missing teeth, our dental bridge services provide a fast, effective solution.

To fill the gap, we’ll place crowns on the teeth on either side of the opening and weld a false tooth between them. If more than one tooth is missing, we’ll increase the number of false teeth accordingly. In most cases, you can have your dental bridge made and fitted within a single appointment thanks to our state-of-the-art CEREC™ machine.

Patients in Boise turn to us for dental bridges to benefit from quick turnarounds and advanced technology as well as compassionate care and proven results. We have a long track record of successful dental bridge fittings at Boise Family Dental Care.


What to Know Before You Get a Dental Bridge

Dental bridge services might not be right for everyone. Keep these factors in mind as you consider tooth replacement:

  • Adjustments to the supporting teeth: We’ll need to cut away a portion of the healthy teeth on either side of the gap to prepare for the dental bridge.
  • Risk of deterioration: Bridges don’t attach to the bone. As a result, the section of jaw bone under the bridge may still weaken, and the surrounding gum tissue could recede.
  • Extra pressure: The supporting teeth on either side of the bridge experience added pressure, putting them at risk of future dental issues.

You might also want to consider the differences between a dental bridge versus an implant. Dental implants prevent bone loss by attaching to the jaw, and they typically come at a higher cost than dental bridges. We offer both services and are happy to help you explore your options.
