How Much Does a Dental Bridge Cost?

When you’re missing one or more teeth, chewing or speaking can be more difficult. Plus, the longer the gap between teeth exists, the greater chance further problems may arise, such as bone loss and the shifting of adjacent teeth. Dr. Amin Samadian can restore your teeth with the latest dental bridge technology in order to prevent bone loss and improve your quality of life.

How Do Dental Bridges Work?

Missing teeth do more than make it difficult to eat or speak. With no tooth root, your jawbone can shrink, or resorb, and your adjacent teeth can shift to compensate for the gap. This can lead to more problems, including further tooth loss. Dr. Samadian most often recommends implant supported bridges for missing teeth, especially if the gap spans more than a single tooth. Implant supported bridges involve Dr. Samadian placing implant posts into your jawbone, which act as a tooth root and prevent bone resorption as well as providing your new bridge a secure anchoring point. Traditional bridges are also available and are attached to adjacent teeth rather than implant posts.

 Your bridge is made of the highest quality materials, such as porcelain, with the teeth in the middle bracketed by high-quality crowns. These crowns are filled with dental cement, which are then affixed to either the implant posts or the carefully prepared adjacent teeth. The teeth between the crowns is the bridge, and they replace the teeth you’ve lost.

How Much Does a Dental Bridge Cost?

Each patient’s unique dental situation is the most important factor in determining the cost of a dental bridge repair, including how many teeth are missing, the complexity of the placement, and additional dental concerns such as gum disease. Your insurance coverage also plays a role in how much you pay out-of-pocket. Traditional dental bridges can range in price from $4000-$7000 while implant supported bridges can begin at $15,000 and go up to $20,000 or more. With the in-office laboratory, Dr. Samadian can price dental bridges extremely competitively, so replacing missing teeth doesn’t have to strain your budget. 

Dr. Amin Samadian also offers flexible payment plans through CareCredit and GreenSky Bio. The best way to determine accurate pricing for your treatment plan is to meet with the experts in person to discuss your options.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Which type of bridge is right for you depends on several unique factors, such as which teeth are missing, the current state of your jawbone, your bite pressure, and the condition of your surrounding teeth. Start with a thorough evaluation with Dr. Samadian, who will always take the time to explain the details and the reasons that support your ideal bridge.

What is the Procedure Like?

If your treatment plan involves implant supported bridges, Dr. Samadian will begin by numbing the area to place the implant posts. Using Xguide navigational live guided technology, and 3D printing, using CT scan, Dr. Samadian makes the incisions and places the implants parallel to each other with robotic precision. As you’re healing, a temporary restoration is placed until your implants are integrated with your jaw and your permanent bridge can be cemented in place.

If your treatment plan involves a traditional bridge, Dr. Samadian will use specially designed dental instruments to prepare the teeth adjacent to the gap, which will be the anchor points for the bridge’s end crowns. Because Dr. Samadian’s office includes a state-of-the-art lab for dental appliance creation, your bridge can be quickly fabricated, so you receive your permanent bridge before you know it.

Your bite alignment will be carefully tested, and Dr. Samadian will shape your bridge to create a comfortable bite. He will also discuss with you everything you need to know about good oral hygiene and any changes to flossing techniques you might require in caring for your new bridge.
