Are you missing one or more teeth? Are there gaps in your smile making things like chewing and speaking difficult? We may recommend a dental bridge to restore the appearance and functionality of your teeth.
A dental bridge consists of two dental crowns with a false tooth attached in between. The two crowns will be attached to the teeth on either side of the missing tooth.
The Dental Bridge Process
After administering anesthetic, our dentist will shape the teeth on either side of the gap to allow space for the dental bridge. Then impressions will be taken of the missing tooth and the surrounding teeth. These impressions will allow your dental bridge to be constructed specifically for your smile. Once your dental bridge is ready, our dentist will check the fit and color and make any needed tweaks. Then the bridge will be cemented in place.
Dental Bridge Care
If cared for well, your new dental bridge can last for 10 years or more before being replaced. To properly care for your dental bridge, simply practice consistent, efficient oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice a day, floss once a day and visit our office at least twice a year for professional exams and cleanings.
