Dental Bridge for Missing Teeth
Dental Bridge Treatment in West Lake Hills, TX
Beautiful restorations for damaged, decayed, or missing teeth.
A dental bridge is a replacement for one or more missing or severely decayed teeth. Sometimes also called a fixed partial, a bridge is an affordable option that also provides excellent strength and durability. Typically, a bridge consists of replacement teeth anchored with porcelain crowns on either side (called abutment teeth).
After you’ve received a bridge, it’s essential to take extra care when brushing to keep food debris and plaque from accumulating. Also, since the bridge is a single fixed piece, we recommend floss threaders to clean between teeth. You may also want to consider using a water flosser for improved oral hygiene.
With proper at-home care and regular checkups, there’s no reason your dental bridge can’t last ten years or more! Call us at (512) 328-0911 to schedule a consultation, and we’ll be happy to discuss your treatment options for missing teeth.

She is also very involved in the Eanes PTO, her church, and loves raising her family in the Westlake community. “Growing up, I was drawn to mediating and helping others feel more included and less anxious. I was a camp counselor, student government officer and being the oldest of five, I was the family mediator. I found that I had a calling to help alleviate stressful situations for others and realized that being a good listener was something that was key to this. These skills really helped guide me into becoming a dentist that has based my practice on relationships, empathy and a sense of comfort. I knew that I wanted to provide an atmosphere that felt like home when others walked in. Our practice is small, personal and state of the art and we hope you feel like you’re hanging out with friends when you are here!” When she is not practicing dentistry, Dr. Burns enjoys traveling, hiking the greenbelt, enjoying Austin’s music scene, and eating Amy’s Ice Cream.
