South Miami Dental Bridges
Quality dental bridges, made to last
A great fix for missing teeth when an implant is not desired or feasible
Missing teeth make it difficult to eat, speak, and feel confident. While there are many options for replacing missing teeth, a porcelain dental bridge from Pinecrest Smiles is versatile and might be the best choice for you outside of a dental implant.

How do dental bridges work?
A dental bridge is a good option if you have healthy and strong teeth on either side of your missing tooth or teeth. A dental bridge works by using these neighboring teeth as anchor points. These healthy neighboring teeth are covered with a crown, which helps permanently hold the bridge securely in place.
Common questions about porcelain bridges
Can you replace front teeth with a bridge?
Yes, replacing front teeth with a bridge is possible. In fact, a bridge can be used to replace front or back teeth.
How many teeth can be on a bridge?
A dental bridge can include as many as 14 teeth (all the teeth in an arch) when you consider the replaced teeth and the anchor teeth.
Is getting a dental bridge painful?
We offer local anesthesia and will make sure your mouth is fully numb before treatment.
How long will a dental bridge last?
With proper care, bridges are a long-lasting solution. An average dental bridge lasts anywhere between 10-15 years. Some dental bridges even last over 20 years!
