Dental Bridges in Corvallis, OR
Dental bridges are similar to dental crowns, except they cover three or more teeth. They can be used to restore the appearance and functionality of several teeth, or they can be used to replace a missing tooth and complete the patients’ smile. If you live in or near Corvallis and you are interested in using a dental bridge to repair your smile, please contact our office today to schedule a consultation with our team!Schedule Consultation
How long do dental bridges last?
Dental bridges can last 10 to 15 years or longer, depending on how much wear and tear they receive and how well they are taken care of. Dental bridges don’t require any specific maintenance, but we recommend that patients avoid using them to open packages or chew on things that they shouldn’t chew with natural teeth, like ice and hard candy. We also encourage patients to follow a comprehensive oral care routine at home and visit our office twice per year for routine dental exams and cleanings, to help their teeth stay healthy and their dental restorations last for as long as possible.
Should I get a dental bridge or a dental implant?
Dental bridges and implants are both excellent tooth replacement options, and the right choice for you will depend on several different factors. Dental bridges are less invasive than dental implants, require fewer appointments, and have a much shorter recovery time. Dental implants are strong and stable dental restorations that typically last for many decades. For more information, we recommend visiting our dental implants page and scheduling a consultation with our team so we can discuss your options and determine the best choice for you.
Are dental bridges covered by insurance?
Since dental bridges are considered a necessary restorative treatment, they are typically partially or fully covered by most dental insurance plans. We also accept third-party payment plans through CareCredit®, which enables patients to receive the care they need right away while the upfront cost of their care is split into equal monthly payments with little to no interest.
