An Excellent Solution For Replacing One to Three Consecutive Missing Teeth
A Dental Bridge Can Repair Your Smile
Tailored to Meet Your Needs
Traditional bridges can replace missing teeth but require permanent alteration of the teeth adjacent to the gap in your smile. A restoration supported by a dental implant can replace any number of teeth and offers unmatched stability for a dental crown, bridge, or denture.
A Long-Term Solution
Both traditional and dental implant-supported bridges are crafted from advanced porcelain ceramics. Designed to withstand normal biting forces, a porcelain dental bridge can provide over a decade of faithful service with proper care and regular checkups with our dentists serving Clairemont and Pacific Beach, CA.
Incredibly Life-Like Results
The porcelain used for dental bridges is not only incredibly strong but is engineered to mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Dr. Shelton or Dr. Milcovich will color-match your new dental bridge to match the shade of your surrounding teeth so that you can enjoy a seamlessly restored smile.

Can I Afford a Dental Bridge? Insurance Accepted and Flexible Payment Options Available
At Bay View Dental, we understand that the cost of dental care may cause some patients to hesitate to seek treatment. Unfortunately, putting off much-needed dental work can only make current issues worse and may in fact lead to more expensive procedures in the future. To help provide the most affordable dental care to our patients, we accept most major dental insurance plans. Our friendly office staff will gladly fill out all of the required paperwork with your provider to ensure you make the most of your benefits.
Our goal is to help you achieve a beautifully healthy smile without having to worry about how to pay for dental care. For patients without insurance or who are interested in managing their out-of-pocket expenses, we also offer flexible payment options. When developing your custom treatment plan, our team can discuss financing options so that you can get the dental care you need with a payment plan that meets your budget.

More 5-Star Reviews For Our Clairemont Practice
I have been coming to Bay View for a number of years and sad when Dr Emerson retired. He encouraged my family to stay with office, the staff would remain and have 2 female dentists come in. I had to change my dental plan to stay on and I’m glad I did ! Everyone is friendly, professional and like family. Thank you Bay ViewView on Google

Implant-Supported Bridges Why You Should Consider This Premium Solution
Prevent Jaw Atrophy
Tooth roots stimulate the jaw, keeping it strong and healthy. Dental implants can provide that same stimulation, helping your jaw retain its shape and strength and preventing the bone atrophy that would otherwise occur following tooth loss.
Preserve Healthy Dental Tissue
Traditional bridges require reducing healthy teeth and capping them with crowns in order to provide support to the bridge. When you choose dental implants, your healthy nearby teeth can remain fully intact since the implants will keep your bridge firmly in place.
While all bridges eventually need to be replaced, you can expect your dental implants to last the rest of your life if you properly maintain your oral health by brushing twice daily, flossing at least once each day, and attending six-month cleanings with us.

I appreciate the level of care from the hygienist Lynn and the dentist. They explained so much to me that nobody ever has, and that is worth the experience. Getting an appointment is easy and they respect that schedules change.View on Google
