Dental Bridges - PHC Dental Care of Miami Florida

Missing teeth is ancient history at Premium Healthcare Dental Center in Miami, where we help restore the functionality of the mouth through various means. Dental bridges fill the gaps of missing teeth, allowing for improved chewing and speaking abilities.
If you have lost a tooth, a dental bridge can distribute the bite forces evenly, preventing excessive strain on the remaining teeth.

The Board-certified dental providers of Premium Healthcare Dental Center are committed to restoring the natural structure of your mouth, and dental bridges enhance the appearance of your smile – which always boosts self-confidence!



A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of artificial teeth (pontics) held in place by dental crowns, which are attached to the natural teeth on either side of the gap.

With proper care and maintenance, dental bridges can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years or even longer. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices are essential for the longevity of dental bridges.

Dental bridges are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a natural-looking appearance. Initially, you may experience slight discomfort or sensitivity, but it should subside quickly as you adjust to the bridge.

Not everyone is a suitable candidate for a dental bridge. Sufficient healthy teeth adjacent to the gap are required to support the bridge. Your dentist will evaluate your oral health and discuss alternative options if a bridge is not feasible.

The placement of a dental bridge typically requires two dental visits. During the first visit, the adjacent teeth are prepared by removing a small portion of enamel. Impressions are taken to create a custom bridge, which is then placed and adjusted during the second visit.

Proper oral hygiene is crucial for maintaining the health and longevity of your dental bridge. Brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and using an antiseptic mouthwash will help keep the bridge and surrounding teeth clean.

Yes, you can eat normally with a dental bridge. However, it is advisable to avoid excessively hard or sticky foods that may damage the bridge. Your dentist will provide specific dietary recommendations to ensure the longevity of your bridge.

In some cases, a dental bridge may need to be replaced due to wear, damage, or changes in your oral health. Your dentist will evaluate the condition of the bridge and recommend appropriate treatment options, which may include bridge replacement.

Remember, these answers provide general information, and it’s important to consult with a dentist for personalized advice and treatment options specific to your dental needs
