Reclaim Functionality, Confidence, and Oral Health with Dental Bridges
Our teeth can naturally weaken as we age, but tooth loss doesn’t have to be an inevitable part of aging. .
However, if it occurs, you should seek professional help to address the issue and ensure the continued functionality of your mouth.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you’re likely aware of the impact on your appearance and dental well-being. Your teeth work together in daily functions like eating and talking and we ensure any dental procedures blend seamlessly.
Missing teeth can disrupt these functions, making it essential to explore tooth replacement options.
So, that’s where dental bridges come into the picture, offering practical solutions to restore your oral health and appearance.
Rediscover Your Smile’s Natural Brilliance.
In cases where dental damage seems irreversible, we use porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-gold crowns to rejuvenate your smile. Our versatile techniques allow us to seamlessly replace missing teeth, create picture-perfect smiles, and restore full bit function.
Our reputation is built on the remarkable transformations we achieve using effective techniques. These treatments offer lasting solutions for significant dental issues, often lasting up to 20 to 30 years – as close to permanent as dental treatments can get.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge, also known as a fixed partial denture, is designed to fill the gap created by missing teeth, serving multiple purposes, including the following:
- Oral Functionality and Appearance: Bridges support your lips and cheeks, preventing your mouth from sinking and your face from aging due to tooth loss.
- Oral Health: Teeth naturally complement each other, and missing teeth provoke unusual stresses on gums and oral tissues. This can lead to various harmful disorders. Gum disease risk significantly increases with missing teeth, but a bridge can help mitigate this.
- Speech Clarity: Missing teeth can affect speech clarity.
Exploring Dental Bridge Options
Bridges come in two varieties:
- Fixed Bridges: These bridges are fixed by placing crowns on the natural teeth or bonding the artificial teeth directly to them. Fixed bridges provide a stable, permanent solution.
- Removable Bridges: As the name suggests, these bridges can be taken out and cleaned. They are secured to the teeth using metal clasps or precision attachments.
Getting a Dental Bridge in 3 Easy Steps
During the first appointment, our dentists prepare the teeth on either side of the gap by removing some enamel and dentin.
Impressions of the teeth are taken and sent to a lab, where the bridge is meticulously crafted to ensure a precise fit and alignment with the opposing tooth.
Fixed bridges are attached to the natural teeth adjacent to the gap left by the missing tooth. A pontic, or false tooth, takes the place of the lost tooth. Dental crowns, cemented onto natural teeth, provide essential support for the bridge.
