Replace one or more missing teeth with dental bridges

Patients in and around the Edina, Minnesota, area interested in restoring their smiles following tooth loss have several options to consider. While some patients are good candidates for dental implants, others may not be, which is why patients must have a choice. Dr. Bridget Lervick and her team at Grandview Center for Dentistry are excited to provide a number of different options for those looking to replace missing teeth, including bridges. Bridges are made as fixed or removable restorations to replace one or more teeth in a row. They are an economical option for patients on a budget or with limited reimbursement through their dental insurance plan.

What types of bridges are available at Grandview Center for Dentistry?

At Grandview Center for Dentistry, we offer a variety of different bridge types to meet the needs of our patients. We have conventional dental bridges, Maryland-bonded bridges, cantilever bridges, and implant-supported bridges.

  • Traditional dental bridges. Conventional dental bridges are made up of two or more crowns placed on either side of a missing tooth space and supported by natural teeth. They are sometimes referred to as fixed bridges.
  • Cantilever bridges. Cantilever bridges are similar to traditional dental bridges but only require one adjacent tooth for support instead of two.
  • Maryland bridge. Maryland bonded bridges use porcelain wings or metal frameworks that attach to existing teeth to fill in the gap left by a missing tooth.
  • Implant bridge. Implant-supported bridges use implants as anchors for the bridge and provide additional support and stability compared to traditional dental bridges.
