Our dentists and team are dedicated to restoring the beauty and functionality of your smile and offer premium dental bridges in San Francisco, California. They are designed to seamlessly “bridge” the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

Understanding Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration that consists of one or more prosthetic teeth, known as pontics, which are anchored in place by dental crowns attached to the adjacent natural teeth or implants. This time-tested solution not only restores the aesthetics of your smile but also its functionality, making it easier to eat and speak. 

Types of Dental Bridges

  • Traditional Bridges: The most common type, involving crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap with a pontic in between.
  • Cantilever Bridges: Used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth.
  • Maryland Bridges: Known for their minimal invasiveness, they use a metal or porcelain framework bonded to the backs of the adjacent teeth.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges: The most stable and durable option, supported by dental implants rather than crowns or frameworks.


Benefits of Dental Bridges

  • Restored Smile: Fills the gaps in your smile for a natural and seamless appearance.
  • Improved Oral Functionality: Enables better chewing and speaking capabilities.
  • Prevention of Dental Shifts: Keeps remaining teeth from shifting, maintaining the integrity of your bite and jaw alignment.
