Missing teeth create gaps in your smile that impact both function and appearance. When you have a visible missing tooth, it can make you feel less confident when you are in social or professional situations. A dental bridge can close that gap in your smile and restore your complete set of teeth. At First Smile Family Dental, we offer beautiful dental bridges for smile restorations at our office in Federal Way, WA.

A dental bridge uses your existing teeth to secure a prosthetic tooth in place. If you have one or two missing teeth, a dental bridge anchors fake teeth to fill the gap in your smile. The prosthetic teeth are called pontics, and they are fastened to dental crowns that fit over adjacent teeth. The result is 3-4 crowns and pontics that are secured by the teeth nearest the gap, creating a new line of teeth for your smile.

Is a Dental Bridge Right for You?

There are many different options available for replacing lost teeth. At First Smile Family Dental, we offer dental implants, dentures, implants with overdentures and dental bridges. All these options can replace missing teeth, but each patient may have different needs. A dental bridge is a good option for a person that only needs to replace one or a couple teeth but wants a fixed-in-place option. Partial dentures can slip out of place and may not be desirable for many people.

The most natural option for replacing single teeth is a dental implant, but it is not right for everyone. Dental implants require enough bone density to secure the implant and the treatment is more invasive and expensive than a dental bridge. For some patients, a dental bridge may be a more appropriate option, if they are not good candidates for implants due to their oral health or budget concerns.

Dental bridges can improve the function and beauty of your smile if you have missing teeth.

  • Susan C.

    I absolutely LOVE Dr. Nguyen! She was kind, compassionate, and exactly what I need in a dentist! She made me feel comfortable right away and genuinely cared about me as a person, AND the health of my teeth!

  • Terry H.

    From the time my husband and I walked in the door to walking out it was absolutely amazing!! The care from the receptionist to the technician to the dentist was without a doubt the most professional caring understanding staff. I am not one who enjoys the dentist but they made it so that I was very relaxed and look forward to going again.

  • Kyle G.

    Top of the line customer service from the front desk to the dental chair. Really happy with not only the doctor, but her assistant and everyone that worked there. The cleaning was expertly done, all photos and decisions were thoughtfully explained and I learned new things about my teeth that I did not know before.

  • Teo T.

    AMAZING! The best dentist I have ever been to! I felt well taken care of. I was greeted right when I walked in. The Center is very clean. Dr. Nguyen and her staff are very nice and they pay attention to detail to make sure you get the best dental care! I would definitely recommend to anyone who needs dental care to come to this place for excellent service.
