About Dental Bridges
A dental bridge fills in the open space between the teeth with a false tooth that is connected to a crown, which is placed over the next tooth. The false tooth attaches to the crown with a pontic. Our dentists provide three main options for bridges at Rock Canyon Dental Care in Highlands Ranch, CO which include, a cantilever bridge that surrounds the attached crown; a Maryland bridge, also known as a resin-bonded bridge that connects the false tooth with wings; or a crown that uses framework bonded to the surrounding natural teeth.
"I confess I entered the lobby with some anxious feelings. Years of youthful neglect coming home to roost. The entire staff treated me like I was their only patient for the day; but every chair was occupied. This is the only review I have ever written. These professionals are the best! I've dropped in just to say hello. (Am I crazy to feel this way toward my dentist?) Thanks again, Dr Lee, Pink, and everyone! Sincerely, middle-aged disgruntled man."- L.R. / Google / Mar 11, 2020

"Ever since Dr. Brandon Lee has come to this Rock Canyon Dental office my overall view/experience has changed significantly. Not only is he a perfectionist when it comes to his dental work, he is by far one of the most personable professionals I've ever met! He always takes the time to catch up with me and has an amazing memory of things we have talked about in the past. Additionally, he is extremely generous as evident with his monthly drawings; this month it's a beautiful wooden table that he made himself! I can't say enough about what a great dentist/man Dr. Lee is. I only hope he doesn't have plans to leave any time soon. Thanks brother and keep up the awesome job that you do!"- M.J. / Google / Feb 16, 2020

What to Expect
In preparation for the bridge, our dentists will drill down the support tooth to allow adequate space for the dental crown. After the teeth are made ready for the crown, digital X-rays will be taken so that a thorough visual can be attained and these, as well as the hard impressions will be sent to the dental lab where the permanent bridge is manufactured. Our dentists will cover the individual's teeth with temporary dental crowns for protection until the permanent bridge is ready. Once the bridge is ready, our dentists will affix the bridge and realign the fit for a normal look and comfort.
Dental bridges can last for up to 15 years as long as diligent dental exams at Rock Canyon Dental Care in Highlands Ranch, CO continue each year. It is also important that in addition to yearly check-ups, patients adhere incorporate a thorough at-home oral health regime. This includes, flossing, brushing, and fluoride, which will allow the bridge to last as long as possible.
Dental insurance generally handles a nice portion of the overall expense for professional dental bridges. The patient's coverage will depend on the benefits policy, but our billing office at Rock Canyon Dental Care will confirm with your provider to understand as to what the patient may owe. Our dental practice takes many insurance plans. Patients who do not have insurance coverage may benefit from one of our payment plans.
