Bridging Your Smile Gap

Posted .

Choosing to replace your missing teeth might be a difficult and overwhelming decision to make, especially because there are multiple tooth-replacement options available in the world today. But we are here to help you by telling you all about the successful, reliable, and durable dental bridge!

A dental bridge is a great restoration that fills the gap between your teeth and gives you the smile you have been looking for. It is made of two or more crowns and at least one artificial tooth. The dental crowns lie on the outsides of the bridge while the artificial tooth lies in the middle, filling the gap in your smile. The bridge is anchored to the remaining teeth that lie on both sides of the gap, giving you the permanent results you need.

A dental bridge can:

• Restore your smile
• Improve the appearance of your smile
• Make eating and speaking easier
• Improve your bite
• Maintain the shape of your face
• Replace your missing teeth
• Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of place

The process of creating and placing the dental bridge generally requires two visits to our office. Your first visit will involve your dentist preparing your smile, making impressions of your teeth, sending those impressions to the dental lab, and giving you a temporary bridge to wear while you wait. Your second visit will involve your dentist checking the fit, color, and appearance of your bridge and cementing it into place.

If you would like to know if this is the right dental product for you, we invite you to come to our office and meet with our dentist. We are happy to examine your smile and determine if a dental bridge is the best solution for you!
