Affordable Dental Care
Many patients hesitate to address a missing tooth because they are afraid they can't afford treatment. Unfortunately, avoiding prompt treatment for a lost tooth can lead to more missing teeth and even bone loss.
To help our patients manage out-of-pocket expenses, we accept a variety of dental insurance plans and provide a number of flexible payment options, like CareCredit® financing and a 5% discount for bills paid in cash.
Our friendly office staff will be glad to file all the necessary paperwork with your insurance provider so that you can make the most out of your benefits. Since a dental bridge is a restorative treatment, many insurance plans cover a significant portion of the cost.
Dental Bridge Treatment Timeline
The timeline for receiving a dental bridge depends on a number of factors. For patients considering an implant-supported bridge, treatment may take a year or longer depending on whether any preparatory procedures are required.
For a traditional dental bridge, treatment generally includes:
"We use advanced materials for beautifully lifelike results."

How Long Do Dental Bridges Last?

Our dentist is also happy to guide you through the basics on bridge care, so that you will never be confused about maintaining your beautiful new smile.
Tips for Taking Care Of Your Dental Bridge
Consume Certain Foods Sparingly
Remember to eat mindfully. While your bridge is durable, it can last longer if you avoid certain types of sticky or hard food. Caramel and popcorn should be consumed sparingly after Dr. Measells replaces your bridge.
Keep up With Your Dental Hygiene
Just like your natural teeth, your pontics and abutment teeth will need to be flossed and brushed daily. If you have trouble knowing how long you've been brushing, consider a timed toothbrush, playing a two-minute song, or setting an alarm.
