Dental Bridges Cost
Dental bridges are a great way to replace missing teeth, enhance patients’ smiles, and restore their dental functionality. Several factors affect the dental bridges cost at our Wilmington, DE, practice, including the type of material it is crafted from, the number of teeth it is replacing, and whether or not it is being supported by a dental implant. Drs. Jeffrey J. Emmi, Laura Dougherty, and Jeffrey Bartoshesky work with patients to customize crowns according to their specific aesthetic goals and budgets.

Dental crowns are used at our Wilmington offices to cover teeth that are weakened or otherwise damaged. They distribute weight evenly in the bite, protecting the natural tooth below. Specialized crowns can also anchor dental bridges to fill the gap left by a missing tooth.
Determining the Cost of Dental Bridges
The cost of dental bridges is different for each patient. The final cost of your restoration will depend on a range of factors. First, the material you choose will affect the price of your bridge. You can select from porcelain-fused-to-metal, zirconia, and IPS e.max®. These last two options are advanced types of porcelain. They are incredibly durable and offer a sheen that is nearly indistinguishable from natural teeth. However, they do involve higher costs. Your dentist will explain the benefits of each material and help you choose the one that fits your goals and budget. The size of your restoration will also affect the cost of your treatment. Bridges can replace one tooth or several teeth. Naturally, a smaller bridge will cost less than a larger restoration. Finally, your treatment costs will depend on the type of bridge you choose. Dr. Emmi and his team offer both traditional and implant-supported bridges. Because dental implants require a more complex procedure, the cost of treatment will be higher. Many patients are willing to pay these extra costs to enjoy the stability and durability of an implant-supported restoration.
Dental Health is Priceless
Before beginning treatment, you will have a complete consultation with Dr. Emmi or one of his team members. Your dentist will explain more about your treatment options and help you choose the right type of bridge for your needs. We will customize your treatment so that it fits your budget, as well as your aesthetic and health goals.
When you are planning your treatment, it is important to remember that dental bridges are an important investment in your future oral health. Our custom-crafted restorations offer a number of benefits including:
