When your child is missing a tooth, it can be difficult to chew or swallow food. Dental bridges fill the gap where a permanent tooth is missing.
The cost of a dental bridge can range anywhere from $750 to $1,500 per unit. However, dental bridges may be more affordable than you think. Keep reading to learn about the cost of this dental procedure and how Kool Smiles provides quality, affordable options.
The cost of dental bridges generally depends on what type of bridge is set in place, the material used, and how many teeth are being replaced.
To find the best price for a dental bridge, we’ll look at a few types of dental bridges, plus other factors that affect the cost of treatment.
There are four types of bridges:
Traditional bridges are the most popular kind of bridge. They consist of one or more pontics (fake teeth) and are held in place by dental crowns (abutments).
This type of bridge can be used when your child has natural teeth on both sides of the gap where your child’s tooth used to be.
Also called resin-bonded bridges, Maryland bridges consist of a fake tooth which is attached to adjoining teeth by metal or porcelain framework. This type of bridge is not as strong as a traditional bridge.
These bridges cost between $250-550 per wing and $600-$1200 per replacement tooth.
Cantilever bridges are similar to traditional bridges, but the pontic is supported by a dental crown on only one side, as opposed to both sides. The false teeth are placed in the middle of two normal teeth with a connecting crown. This type of bridge often looks more natural.
This bridge type costs around $700 to $1,500 per unit, or up to $2,100 to $4,500 for one false tooth plus two anchor crowns.
This option is another popular solution for replacing missing teeth. Instead of being supported by a framework, these bridges are supported by dental implants.
Since these bridges are secured by implants, they remain secure and comfortable, and feel just like a normal tooth would.
Based on your child’s specific dental situation, you might prefer a certain bridge material over another. Learn about the common types of bridge materials below:
The material used to construct a bridge or implant is a big factor in determining the cost, but other factors impact the cost of dental bridges, as well:
