At our dental practice, we understand that missing teeth can affect more than just your smile. They can impact your self-esteem, ability to chew and even the overall health of your mouth. That is why we offer dental bridges as a reliable solution to restore the function and appearance of your teeth.

What are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges consist of one or more artificial teeth, called pontics, that are anchored in place by crowns on the adjacent natural teeth or implants. Our dental bridges are crafted from durable, natural-looking materials to ensure they blend seamlessly with your existing teeth.

Why Choose Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges offer numerous benefits for those missing teeth. They restore the ability to chew and speak properly, maintain your original face shape and distribute your bite force correctly. By choosing our dental bridges, you are opting for a solution that not only enhances your smile but also improves your oral health and overall well-being.

The Dental Bridge Procedure

The process of getting a dental bridge typically involves two visits to our office. During the first visit, we prepare the abutment teeth by removing a portion of enamel to make room for the crowns. Impressions of your teeth are then taken to create a model for the bridge, pontic and crowns. While your custom bridge is being made, we provide a temporary bridge to protect the exposed teeth and gums.

On your second visit, we remove the temporary bridge and fit the permanent bridge. We carefully check the fit and make any necessary adjustments to ensure it is comfortable and functions correctly. Once everything is perfect, we cement the bridge into place, giving you a secure and natural-looking solution.

Caring for Your Dental Bridge

Here are some tips to help you keep your bridge in top condition:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
  • Floss daily to remove plaque and food particles from between your teeth and under the bridge.
  • Use an antiseptic mouthwash to reduce the risk of gum disease.
  • Visit our office regularly for check-ups and professional cleanings.
