Named for the way that they “bridge” the gaps between teeth lost to trauma or decay, bridges restore your smile’s health and beauty by placing durable artificial teeth where your natural teeth are missing. Health benfits include preventing adjacent teeth from "tipping" into the empty spaces, which can negatively impact your ability clean and maintain healthy teeth. Also, bridges improve your ability to chew.
If your missing teeth make you feel self-conscious, or you’re noticing problems with speaking, chewing, or other everyday tasks, ask Bastien Dental if a bridge may be right for you. Created and cemented onto your existing teeth by your dentist, bridges offer a comfortable, long-lasting option that can enhance your smile and improve the health of your natural teeth. Bridges are not meant to be taken out by you, and expect to achieve 8-15 years of durability from a bridge. However, if there is a structural failure of a bridge we placed within 8 years of placement, you are covered by the Bastien Dental Crown & Bridge Warranty: we will replace, at no cost, any crown that fails in the first 2 years, and we will pro-rate a replacement, from the day of delivery, of any crown that has a structural failure (large chip or complete fracture) up to 8 years. This is an exceptional and unusual guaranty in dentistry, but we believe in our work, and believe in giving you peace of mind.
