If you are missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge may be the right option for your smile. A dental bridge is a custom-made dental appliance used to literally bridge the empty gap left by a missing tooth. Many types of dental bridges are available, and Dr. Joe Rigg, our expert dentist, will determine which one is best for you after a detailed consultation and examination. The type of dental bridge you need will depend largely on which teeth are missing.


The traditional dental bridge, made from dental crowns and false teeth, is the most common dental bridge we use at Joseph Rigg, DDS. Thanks to our CEREC® one-visit restoration technology, it only takes one visit to our dental office to construct and place your dental bridge. The two dental crowns are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap, which is filled with a false tooth called a pontic. Dental bridges are permanent and are created to last a lifetime. If you are missing teeth and would like to restore the beauty of your smile, we invite you to call our office to learn more about the benefits of dental bridges in Aberdeen, South Dakota. We look forward to giving you a reason to smile again!
