Restore Your Smile from 1 to 3 Lost Teeth

A dental bridge, which restores both appearance and health of your mouth, uses a false tooth held in place by dental implants, your own teeth, or both. Known as a ‘fixed partial denture,’ these bridges are bonded or cemented permanently, so there is no need to remove them for cleaning or sleeping. Addressing gaps from missing teeth is critical not only for aesthetic reasons but also for your oral health. Missing teeth can disrupt your ability to speak or eat, and gaps can allow other teeth to move.

Lifelong Advantages of Dental Bridges

Losing teeth can affect your comfort and self-esteem. Dental bridges not only rejuvenate your smile but also ensure long-term health benefits for your adjacent teeth and the overall bone structure of your mouth. Here’s what a dental bridge offers:


These clear advantages impact us now. Achieve a normal look and feel again. Smile and eat confidently, restoring the smile you know and love. Gaps left by missing teeth can make it tough and painful to talk or eat. Dental bridges are a lasting solution to this discomfort – with proper maintenance, they last more than ten years.

Tooth health

Your teeth play a key role in supporting facial structure. When teeth are missing, your bite changes and gaps may cause other teeth to shift. A dental bridge prevents this shifting, which helps reduce the risk of decay, gum disease, jaw pain, and TMJ issues due to out-of-place teeth.

Bone health

Healthy, secure teeth promote strong jawbones. As dental health declines, so does the health of the bones and tissues that support our teeth. Using a dental bridge to stabilize your dental health can slow bone loss from missing teeth

The Cost Of A Dental Bridge In Toronto

Dental bridge costs can differ greatly depending on the individual. With standard insurance, the average price for a bridge ranges from $800 to $1200+. For those without insurance, you might expect to pay between $2000 to $3000 and above.

    What determines the pricing for a dental bridge?

  • The design of the bridge and the materials chosen.
  • The number of teeth to be replaced.
  • The complexity and location of the fitting.
  • The condition of the teeth beside the missing gap.
  • The tools and supplies needed for your particular treatment.

Keep in mind, precise phone quotes are not possible at dental offices. Your requirements are as unique as your smile itself. An essential step is to consult a dentist and have an oral examination to review all treatment possibilities and get an accurate price estimate. If you have dental insurance, we’d be pleased to give you a quote to find out your personal costs before you decide.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are two main kinds of dental bridges—permanent and semi-permanent. These are sometimes termed fixed partial dentures as they attach to your teeth or implants. Bridges, which are fixed in place, are purely teeth, unlike dentures, which are removable and feature pink artificial gums.

A cantilever bridge is used when adjacent support teeth are only on one side of the missing tooth or teeth. These bridges are rarely used today and are not suitable for areas in the back of the mouth, where they could damage other teeth due to excessive force. Other options are available for those areas.

The placement usually occurs over two appointments, with each lasting less than an hour.

Bridges can be made from gold alloys, non-precious alloys, porcelain, or a mix of these materials. Our preferred material for bridges is porcelain.

While often confused, dental bridges and crowns have unique roles. Crowns are protective caps for broken or worn teeth, enhancing tooth strength and guarding against decay. Bridges are used to span the gap where teeth are missing.

A crown alone cannot fill the gap left by a missing tooth. Crowns are caps that replicate the look and feel of a tooth, but they require support from an existing tooth, a post, or a dental implant beneath the gum line.

Bridges can indeed be constructed with Zirconia. Contact us for additional information, and we’d be pleased to explore the material options and recommend the best for your specific requirements.
