Dental bridge

A dental bridge is a stable and long scientifically proven dental prosthesis for closing gaps between teeth. A bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth fixed between two or more natural teeth. The natural teeth are called "bridge abutments" and serve as anchorage points for the bridge. The missing tooth is replaced with ceramic and hangs like a bridge over a river in the center of the restoration. Hence the name dental bridge.

All-ceramic materials allow it to be visually designed to blend in completely unobtrusively with the natural teeth. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology, we can fabricate dental bridges in just one session.

Do you need to replace one or more missing teeth and are looking for a suitable solution? We offer professional assistance in finding a solution for your specific needs.

Is a dental bridge fixed?

Yes. A dental bridge is firmly attached to the teeth adjacent to the gap. It is bonded to them and cannot be removed. Whenever possible, we try to replace teeth with fixed / non-removable restorations. Dental bridges are superior to so-called dentures, which can be removed, in many ways. The quality of life is increased and the life span of the restorations is twice as long. 

How long does the treatment with a dental bridge take?

By using the latest technology, we can make dental bridges in our practice in just one session. And not just from any material. They are made from the strongest dental ceramic currently available, zirconium oxide.

First, the gap between the teeth and the adjacent teeth are scanned with a 3D scanner. Then we plan the restoration on the computer. We have 30 years of experience in the field of digital dentistry. The planned restoration is then precisely milled from a block of zirconia ceramic. However, because the material is so solid, this happens while the material is not yet completely solid. After milling, the restoration goes into the hardening furnace at 1500°C to obtain its strength. The entire process takes place in our office and takes only a few hours. More information about digital dentistry.

What if a tooth still needs to be removed?

If a tooth still needs to be removed, the dental bridge is also a very good option to replace it. We carefully remove the affected tooth. In the same session, you will receive a 3D-supported fabricated long-term temporary. This remains in the mouth for 6 months. During this time the tissue can heal very well and protected. Then the definitive bridge is made of zirconium oxide. 

What do our patients say?

We continuously invest in the most advanced treatment methods.

In addition to clinical activities, we are involved in research projects in the field. This work has resulted in numerous scientific publications, patents as well as collaborations with international universities, research institutes and companies.

How to clean a dental bridge?

As with all restorations, good cleaning of the teeth and the restoration is crucial for success. You can clean the outer surfaces of the dental bridge with a toothbrush just like the natural teeth. The only difference to natural teeth are the spaces between them. In a dental bridge, several teeth are connected to each other. This means that you cannot reach the spaces from above with dental floss. There is a good solution for this as well. There is special dental floss that has a fixed end. You can slide the fixed end under the bridge from the side. Then you can clean the spaces and the area where the missing tooth is replaced with the floss. 

Adhesive bridge

The adhesive bridge is a modern and minimally invasive method of replacing a missing tooth in the anterior region. And it can be done without having to grind down a tooth. The tooth to be replaced is firmly bonded to the inside of an adjacent tooth. Technically correct, this is a long-lasting and aesthetically very good solution.

Dental bridge before-after

Here you will find some case studies from our practice on treatment with fixed dental bridges. Our results have been published many times in the professional literature. All cases presented on our website were treated entirely in our practice. 

Dental bridge in the anterior region

In an accident, one of the two central incisors was severely destroyed. We were able to carefully remove the tooth and performed a surgical bone and gum reconstruction. In the same session, the missing tooth was replaced with a temporary. After six months, the definitive bridge was fabricated, which is shown here. 

Braces from the inside and adhesive bridge

The patient was missing one of the two lateral incisors. This led to a tilting of the entire anterior teeth. In a complex treatment, all teeth were brought into the ideal position. A gap was created for the missing tooth. Subsequently, the missing tooth was replaced by an adhesive bridge.

Gum surgery and dental bridge

The patient wished to improve the esthetic situation. Since one of the anterior teeth had been removed many years ago, the gum line had to be adjusted to achieve an esthetic improvement. The missing tooth was replaced with a dental bridge. 

What if there are no adjacent teeth?

Even if there are no teeth adjacent to the gap or the gap is very large, our preferred option is to replace the teeth permanently. For this purpose we use dental implants as artificial tooth roots. A dental bridge can also be attached to these. Here you can find more information about dental implants.

Dental bridge or dental implant?

Many patients ask us whether a dental bridge or a dental implant is the right solution for them. This cannot be answered in a general way. Both options are good and work equally well in the long term. Here you will find detailed information on the advantages and disadvantages of the two treatment options:

Yvonne Amann

I had a complete dental rehabilitation at Dr. Horvath's practice in Jestetten. I am completely satisfied. That is, from the cost estimate to the discussions / explanations about the treatment, as well as the treatment itself, the practice team and ambience. Very competent and trustworthy. I felt very well taken care of. Many thanks again dear teamv

Dagmar Dänzer

Highly recommended. Friendly and warm welcome. I had an implant done and several crowns. Everything was done very quickly and professionally. What I really appreciated was that I did not have to go to different places it was all done in the same place. For a crown, you can wait directly, it's super fast.

Miro Smerek

After years of experience, I can only report positively about the practice of Dr. Horvath: Preservation of tooth substance is the top priority, pain relief works excellently, and instruments are wielded with a sure hand. Fascinating also the most modern technology for diagnosis and preparation of dental prosthesis. A friendly approach to patients is a matter of course here. And above all: You can rely 100% on the diagnosis made. Therefore: 5 stars!!!

Fabian Keller

I have been coming to Jestetten from Zurich for 3 years because the service is simply better. The practice has the most modern equipment, the treatments are pleasant and the prices are fair.

Rudolf Schranz

It is with great pleasure that I can recommend Dr. Horvath's practice with a clear conscience. I have experienced for several years now that I am very satisfied after every treatment and never had a complication. Especially my last treatment, to get a bridge on the left and right side, gave me back my smile, which I had been missing for a long time because of the 2 gaps. My dentist Dr. S. Horvath is an excellent dentist, competent, trustworthy, works with great calm, explains what is happening, from the reception to the farewell you are in the best hands. A big thank you for all the staff.
