Dental Bridges

Missing and badly damaged teeth can diminish your appearance, deplete your confidence, and make it hard to both speak clearly and chew your foods effectively. Missing teeth can also start a spiral of periodontal (gum and bone) problems that can be difficult to overcome.  Get in touch with Avalon Family Dentistry today to find out how we can complete your smile with high-quality dental bridges.


Do You Offer Dental Bridges Near Me?

Do you live in or near Federal Way, WA, and want a safe, effective, and long-lasting way to replace your missing or badly damaged teeth? If so, you're not alone. At Avalon Family Dentistry, we pride ourselves in offering a number of cutting-edge options in smile restoration. Our dental bridges look and function just like natural teeth. They are easy to clean and easy to adapt to, and they will blend seamlessly into your smile. Best of all, compared to dental implants, dental bridges offer an affordable and less invasive way to complete your smile after tooth loss.

What Are the Benefits of Getting Dental Bridges in Federal Way, WA?

Apart from vastly improved smile aesthetics, our dental bridges can help protect the remainder of your natural tooth structures by balancing out bite forces. This way, when you chew tough, crunchy, and hard foods, your remaining teeth won't be subjected to unnecessary wear. This keeps them from developing chips, cracks, and stress fractures that can let harmful, decay-causing bacteria in.  A bridge to replace a missing tooth will also ensure the adjacent teeth and the teeth opposing to not collapse toward one another or “supra erupt” because teeth, naturally, want to touch side-to-side and top-to-bottom. Ultimately, it also ensures that you don't continue experiencing additional tooth loss. If your tooth loss is widespread, getting dental bridges can even make it easier for you to enunciate clearly when you speak.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Bridges?

Anyone who's missing one or more teeth, that are between other teeth, should consider getting dental bridges. Tooth loss on any scale is always a progressive issue. When dental bridges are installed, one or more false teeth are placed in the area of loss and then anchored on each side with crowns that are fitted to the abutting tooth structures. This creates a secure, stable bite while completing the smile. The results are both aesthetically pleasing and virtually indistinguishable from a full set of natural teeth.

Dental bridges can be ideal for anyone who isn't a good candidate for dental implants due to extensive bone density loss and insufficient bone mass for supporting titanium posts. There are also some commonly prescribed medications that may make dental implants more difficult to place.  If you've been searching for "dental bridges near me," we can help you establish the perfect restoration plan for addressing both tooth loss and any other oral health issues that you're dealing with.

At Avalon Family Dentistry, we always implement need-specific solutions so that our patients are getting the right treatments for meeting their aesthetic goals and protecting their overall oral health. With our dental bridges, you can renew your confidence, regain full chewing and talking abilities, and protect your remaining natural teeth. Call us today to schedule your consultation appointment in Federal Way, WA, and to find out more about our full range of smile restoration services.
