Dental Bridges in New Port Richey
Filling the Spaces to Recover Your Gap-Free Smile
At A Family Dentist, we understand how uncomfortable and inconvenient missing or shifted teeth can be. Aesthetic concerns aside, these gaps can make chewing unpleasant or lead to issues with your bite. More significant jaw problems can even result in periodontal disease. Professional dental bridges from our New Port Richey dentist will safeguard the integrity of your teeth and help to maintain your vibrant smile.

Dental Bridges Explained
Put simply, a dental bridge is a device that fills space previously occupied by a missing or shifted tooth. This solution is more than a cosmetic one—many of our patients describe having never realized how much their bite had suffered before receiving a bridge. Filling the space eliminates growing jaw problems that could lead to further dental complications.
The three primary types of dental bridges include:
- Fixed bridge: By far the most popular, the fixed bridge entails a filler tooth attached to two crowns, which fit over the surrounding existing teeth.
- Cantilever bridge: In some cases, there are existing teeth on only one side of a span. In this event, two crowns are positioned side-by-side with the filler tooth connected to these in the missing tooth space.
- Maryland bridge: This method is typically used to replace missing front teeth. Metal bands composed of a white-tinted resin that matches the color of your existing teeth are bonded to the abutment teeth, and the filler tooth is attached to the bands.
