What Are Dental Bridges?
When one or many of your teeth are missing, it is more than just a problem with appearance as having gaps can cause your remaining teeth to shift. This can result in unnecessary tension in your bite, pain when you chew, or a speech impairment. A dental bridge improves the health and appearance of your mouth by covering spaces with a false tooth that is supported by either crowns, dental implants, or a combination of both. At Washington Elite Dentistry, our team offers dental bridges with top-quality materials to help restore your beautiful smile. If you have gaps in your smile, please schedule an appointment at our Washington, D.C. office to learn about your treatment options with dental bridges.
What Can I Expect from Dental Bridges?
Once your teeth are filed down to prepare them, we will take digital x-rays and dental impressions so your custom bridge can be created. A temporary bridge can be placed while your custom one is crafted. As soon as your dental bridge is ready, your mouth will be numbed with local anesthesia. Stronger sedation methods may be used if you have anxiety or trouble with a gag reflex so you will stay calm during the placement. Your bridge will either be glued in place or connected to implants based on the support you elected to have during your consultation. A member of our team will adjust the fit of the bridge so it is comfortable in your mouth and stable.
Washington Elite Dentistry Reviews
top-notch dentist and staff. reasonable and transparent pricing. pristine office space. A++
Very happy I stumbled upon Washington Elite Dentistry! The staff was friendly, attentive and even made sure I scheduled a follow up appointment for soon after.
Dr. Berman and her staff are the best! I hadn’t been back to work in DC since Covid in 2020 and they got me right in for a cleaning. I have had painful experiences with dentists in the past but I feel safe and comfortable under Dr. Berman’s care. I appreciate the entire staff, from dental assistants to the front office, they take time to explain procedures & costs to you and work with you to achieve the most favorable outcome. I highly recommend them.
Top notch, one stop shop for all your dental needs. Modern office, close to the Metro, staff clearly dedicated to superior customer service skills.
Dr. Berman and her staff are extremely personable and they worked extra hard to make sure my filling was perfect.

Dental Bridges FAQs
How long does a dental bridge last?
Typically, dental bridges can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years, or even longer. At Washington Elite Dentistry, the longevity of a bridge depends on good oral hygiene and regular checkups. Proper care can help a dental bridge to last over a decade.
Are dental bridges painful to get?
Getting a dental bridge is usually not painful, as the procedure is performed under local anesthesia. Patients at Washington Elite Dentistry may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity after the procedure, which typically subsides quickly with proper aftercare.
How do I care for my dental bridge?
Caring for dental bridges involves regular brushing and flossing, just like natural teeth. Washington Elite Dentistry recommends using a fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, and regular dental checkups to ensure the longevity of your bridge.
