While most of us plan to retain our natural teeth for a lifetime, tooth loss does happen. Whether you’ve lost a tooth from a traumatic injury or severe decay, it is necessary to replace the missing gap in your smile. Missing teeth are more than just an aesthetic threat. Even one missing tooth can cause neighboring teeth to shift out of place and put you at risk for bite problems, decay and other dental problems. At West Hill Family Dental, we proudly offer a full menu of restorative dentistry options to replace missing teeth, including our high quality dental bridges.
Dental bridges are an effective solution for replacing missing teeth. They can be customized in color, shape and size to match your surrounding smile. Our dental bridges consist of top quality materials that make them durable for everyday dental function. We combine excellence in restorative and cosmetic dentistry with our unrivaled focus on patient comfort to ensure your dental bridge is a rewarding and positive experience from start to finish.
How Does a Dental Bridge Work?
In simplest terms, a dental bridge spans the gap of a missing tooth. A traditional dental bridge is fixed in place and ideal for patients who have a missing tooth with surrounding healthy teeth. The prosthetic tooth, called a pontic, is attached on either side to abutments that are cemented onto the adjacent teeth on each side. In many cases, these teeth are crowned for extra strength and durability. Our office offers traditional dental bridges as well as implant supported bridges, which rely on a set of implants to anchor the bridgework or pontic in place. Implant bridges provide superior stability for those that are missing more than one tooth in a row. We proudly offer the Prettau® implant bridge as a leading choice in this type of dental bridge.
Regardless of which type of dental bridge you choose, you can expect to be kept comfortable and informed at every step of the process. When it comes to rebuilding your smile after missing teeth, we stop at nothing less than excellence. You’ll find that we go above and beyond to find a solution that meets your clinical needs and personal budget and preferences.

What Our Patients Say
West Hill Family Dental has been serving my entire family for 10 years. They have always been great and treat us like family. I will continue to use them because of the high level of care and comfortable atmosphere.
Today was my first visit with West Hill Family dental. The staff was awesome! So warm and welcoming! I felt at home the moment I walked in the door. Melissa (hygienist) was awesome and very sweet. Dr. Hemphill was very personable. I am a nervous Nelly with the dentist but they really helped me feel comfortable.
"Going to the Dentist," isn't something most folks look forward to. Fortunately, the Team at West Hill Family Dental makes that experience an enjoyable event with a friendly, thoughtful and genuinely concerned approach to both routine care and one-off emergencies. The atmosphere is relaxed and positive; everything from scheduling to changes is accommodated with little fuss and a genuine enthusiasm to see you at the next opportunity. And the overall quality of care, execution and attention to customer needs are unmatched by most practices, and certainly by the cookie-cutter pop-ups that abound elsewhere. Highly recommended, family-oriented and very professional in every aspect of care and delivery - they're definitely on the list of recommendations to new residents and neighbors!
In the past I have had bad experiences with dentist and I have switch many times and I think I have finally found my forever home. Kim and Monica at the front desk are amazing they make sure that if you have any concerns, they will accommodate you in any way they can. They also socialize with you which makes visiting the dentist feel like visiting family. This is by far the best dentist I've ever been to and would recommend them to anyone.
