Dental bridges are designed to replace your missing teeth and restore your smile to full function and beauty. Our Dentist may recommend a bridge if you are missing one or more teeth in a row. Bridges are fixed (non-removable) restorations and are anchored in place using dental crowns placed on the teeth on either side of the gap in your smile or with a dental implant. These adjoining crowns or implant hold your replacement tooth in place to restore your smile to full beauty.
Other benefits of dental bridges include:
- Restoring your oral function so that you can eat and speak normally
- Alleviating excess stress on your bite
- Preventing your remaining teeth from shifting out of their correct positions
- Providing support for the shape and volume of your face
- Replacing a partial denture
Your dental bridge can usually be completed in two appointments. During the first, an impression will be taken, and the teeth on either side of the gap will be prepared for crowns. The impression will be sent to a dental lab where your bridge will be created. When you return for your second appointment, our Dentist will place the bridge and check to ensure it fits correctly. We will then anchor it in place to complete your treatment and provide you with a long-lasting solution for your smile.
