DENTAL BRIDGE

Replacing Your Teeth with a Non-Removable Solution


THREE WAYS OF REPLACING MISSING TEETH


DENTAL BRIDGE


Dental bridges can provide a fast and non-removable solution to replacing missing.  Just as the name implies, a “bridge” of connected crowns are attached on nearby teeth to give the appearance/function like your normal teeth.

DENTAL IMPLANT


Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing teeth, as they can provide excellent function and aesthetics, depending on the case.  Additionally, they do not require adjusting nearby teeth like dental bridges.

REMOVABLE DENTURE


Whether you are missing a few teeth or all your teeth, dentures can provide a cost effective solution to replacing missing teeth.  However, patient satisfaction is the lowest as they are removable appliances and do not provide as much function as the other solutions.


DENTAL BRIDGE


 If you’re missing one or more teeth and are not a good candidate for dental implants (usually due to lack of sufficient bone and tissue), a dental bridge may be the best option for restoring your smile. In the simplest terms, a dental bridge is a prosthetic tooth that’s held in place by anchoring to the surrounding natural teeth. It literally “bridges” the gap that’s left by the missing tooth.

Bridges do require significant preparatory work, including taking impressions of your mouth and preparing your “anchor” teeth so that the bridge will fit to them perfectly. But when it’s all said and done, your smile will look as good as ever! You’ll also be able to speak and chew more naturally and your teeth will remain in proper position. With good dental hygiene and care, you’ll enjoy the aesthetic and functional benefits of your bridges for many years.

FIRST APPOINTMENT


During the first procedure appointment, the dentist will numb your teeth with dental anesthetics.  Once your teeth are numb, your teeth will be reshaped with a dental handpiece.  You can expect a lot of air and water during the appointment that will be suctioned throughout the reshaping by our dental assistant.  The color of your teeth and molds of your reshaped teeth will be taken and sent to a dental laboratory for fabrication.  Afterwards, temporary teeth will be made and cemented, so you don’t have to walk around with the missing tooth.


DELIVERY APPOINTMENT


After a few weeks, your office will receive the completed permanent bridge.  During the delivery appointment, you may/may not be numbed based on your sensitivity level.  The dental bridge is fitted and adjusted to fit your bite.  Once everything has been confirmed, the dental bridge will be attached with permanent cement, and you will have your new teeth!
