Do you have gaps in your smile you cover from embarrassment? These missing teeth can also prevent you from eating some foods and cause other oral problems. Dental bridges are an affordable and popular cosmetic dentistry option for many in our Spokane dental family. This oral prosthetic device is anchored to your existing teeth to produce a solid line of beautiful teeth. Our dentists and team at Downriver Smiles in Spokane offer modern dental bridges at our dental clinic near Airway Heights.

Whenever trauma, disease or some other cause results in tooth loss, it can harm your smile and oral health. When you have just a few teeth missing, you could be a great candidate for dental bridges. This form of cosmetic/restorative dentistry offers a fixed option for replacing missing teeth to improve your smile and self-confidence. The prosthetic teeth are attached to the bridge to look and function completely naturally, for a dental repair that is beautiful and strong.

Replace Missing Teeth Near Airway Heights

Our dentists create your dental bridge and connects it to dental crowns on each side of the gap in your smile. The artificial teeth, called pontics, are custom designed and created in a dental lab. We use 3D cone beam imaging to create digital images that are sent to the lab for your dental bridges. That way, precise measurements and designs are possible to create the perfect set of artificial teeth to match your smile.

Once the bridge is completed, we place protective crowns over the teeth adjacent to your missing teeth for added strength. Then, the dental bridge is attached to these crowns and bonded into place for a strong, worry-free dental restoration. Plus, the dental lab color-matches the pontics to match your remaining natural teeth for a seamless and discreet smile makeover.

In as little as two visits to our clinic in Spokane, you can restore your smile, speech and confidence with a custom dental bridge. Downriver Smiles also offers other restorative dentistry options, such as dentures and dental implants. Our cosmetic dentist can explain the benefits of each and recommend the best fit for your desires and budget. Contact Downriver Smiles in Spokane today to schedule a consultation with our dentists and explore the options for replacing missing teeth.

Dr. Gaunt is the best! This is the first dentist that I have had a good experience with. I had a root canal done and was so nervous, they made me comfortable and had it done within an hour. I would definitely recommend Downriver smiles!

I had the worst dental anxiety before going to Dr. Gaunt years ago- to the point I let my teeth go until they were breaking, in need of numerous fillings, root canals, and extractions. Dr. Gaunt was by far the best dentist I have ever had; he explained everything in as much detail as I required, made me comfortable with any procedure and has won my and my family's business throughout the years with his excellent care and demeanor. Dr. Gaunt and all his wonderful staff are a joy to work with and I can guarantee our continued visits in the years to come for any work my family requires. Thank you Downriver Smiles staff!

The employees at Shadle Smiles are so friendly and make sure you understand your procedures and cost before work is done. Dr Harding was my dentist and listened to my concerns about work to be done. He only does what work really needs to be done and what can wait. Love this place!

  • Best dentist in Spokane! Don’t look any further! I chipped my front tooth and they got me in the next day! Left with a beautiful smile and my wallet still intact! I wasn’t an existing patient, but I am now! Awesome environment and extremely friendly staff! 10/10 hands down would recommend!

Everyone there is caring and takes all the time needed to make sure you are comfortable and that your questions are answered. Dr. Harding is wonderful! I would never want to go anywhere else.
