Dental Bridges

Bridge the Gaps in Your Teeth

Many patients with missing teeth turn to bridges as a replacement solution. A bridge consists of two crowns on either side of a gap with a prosthetic tooth or teeth in the middle. Dr. Gittleman has over 25 years of experience with traditional fixed bridges and implant-supported bridges. We often create porcelain bridges for a natural-looking appearance.

Traditional Fixed Bridges

A traditional bridge requires minimal shaping of healthy teeth. The healthy teeth are fitted with crowns that will support the tooth replacement. As the name suggests, fixed bridges cannot be removed by the patient. Dr. Gittleman can typically design and place a traditional bridge in two appointments.

Implant-Supported Bridges

For patients who would like to keep healthy teeth intact but need multiple, adjacent teeth replaced, Dr. Gittleman may suggest an implant-supported bridge. A dental implant is placed in the jaw bone and serves as an anchor for the bridge. An implant-supported bridge will also stimulate bone growth in the area around the implant.

Dear Dr. Gittleman, I should have sent this along ago but struggled with trying to find the words that truly conveyed my gratitude. I don't know if you have any idea what you have done for me – maybe you do; but you have given me several gifts… a lot more confidence, through the roof comfort and a cost that was affordable for us. I'm able to eat, laugh, talk and even travel now without worrying that my prosthesis is going to shift or move or click – for the first time in almost 4 years! And because it doesn't move or shift, there is no more pain. Before the implants, I had constant discomfort, mouth sores and difficulty eating. I know it's only been a little over a month, but it's been fabulous so far! You and your staff were wonderful and completely professional. I will never be able to return the kindness – but if I know anyone who is considering implants I will send them your way – you are simply the Best!
