Living with tooth loss can be challenging because a gap in your smile can make eating comfortably and speaking clearly difficult.

A dental bridge from Drs. Michael Sharp and Aoua Coulibaly can renew the comfort, form, and function of your smile.

At Sharp Smile Center, serving Portage, MI, we can replace missing teeth and restore your oral health with a custom dental bridge.

Types of Dental Bridges

To best support the individual needs and goals of our patients, we offer both traditional dental bridges and bridges supported by dental implants.
Traditional dental bridge

Traditional Bridges

A traditional dental bridge is an artificial tooth, also known as a pontic. The pontic piece is made of artificial teeth and it bridges the gap left by missing teeth. Whether you are replacing a single tooth or a number of consecutive teeth, a traditional bridge requires reshaping the teeth on either side of the gap in your smile. This provides room for the dental crowns that are placed on these adjacent teeth to hold the bridge in place.

Implant bridge

Implant-Supported Bridges

A dental bridge or partial denture supported by dental implants is the next best thing to natural teeth. This is because dental implants are placed directly in your jawbone for unmatched stability. Dental implants are also the only treatment proven to stop the bone loss associated with tooth loss. We can perform every step of implant treatment in-house including any preparatory treatments needed to restore a patient's candidacy.
