Our dentist and team recognize the impact of a complete smile on your overall well-being. That is why we are proud to offer dental bridges, a reliable and aesthetic solution for replacing missing teeth.
Understanding Dental Bridges
A dental bridge is a custom-made replacement for one or more missing teeth. It literally “bridges” the gap where teeth are absent. Dental bridges are composed of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials.
The Process of Getting a Dental Bridge
The process typically involves a couple of visits to our practice. Here is what you can expect:
- Initial Consultation: Assessment of your oral health and determination of the suitability for a bridge.
- Preparation of Teeth: The adjacent teeth are prepared by recontouring these teeth and making impressions to create a model for the bridge.
- Temporary Bridge: A temporary bridge is fitted to protect exposed teeth and gums while your bridge is being made.
- Final Fitting: Once your custom bridge is ready, the temporary bridge is removed, and the new bridge is adjusted to achieve a proper fit.
Benefits of Dental Bridges
- Aesthetic Restoration: Seamlessly matches your natural teeth
- Functional Improvement: Restores the ability to chew and speak properly
- Longevity: With proper care, dental bridges can last many years
- Non-Invasive: Less invasive than dental implants with no surgery required
- Quick Solution: A faster procedure compared to implants
