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. Dr. Cory Gaunt and the 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

Dr. Gaunt creates 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 Dr. Gaunt, and explore the options for replacing missing teeth.

  • 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!

  • Dr. Gaunt replaced my two front crowns that I have had since I was 15 years old and now I am 59. He was very meticulous in sizing, shaping, fitting and color matching and spent adequate time to achieve those results. This is the best dental care I have ever had in my life. I highly recommend Downriver Smiles and their very friendly and caring staff.
