More About Bridges
If you’re missing teeth, a dental bridge can close the gap in your smile. Composed of materials such as gold or porcelain, dental bridges are strong and durable false teeth that easily blend in with your natural teeth.
How does a dental bridge work?
An abutment (a connector) is created with the patient’s existing teeth. These teeth are reworked to act as a stable base for the bridge
Once the abutment is formed, a mold is taken of the area
The mold is sent to a dental lab where a custom made bridge is built to fit the patient in a way that feels as close to their natural teeth as possible.
While waiting for your permanent bridge, a temporary bridge will be placed in your mouth to protect the abutments and vulnerable gum areas.
A missing tooth or teeth can cause structural shifts to the mouth and jaw which may result in difficulty eating or speaking normally. With a dental bridge, you can restore your smile, speech, ability to chew and maintain the shape of your face.
A new dental bridge may take some time to feel like your natural teeth. Following the dental bridge placement, it is highly recommended that you eat soft foods for a few days before transitioning back to regular habits. Our team will go over pre- and post-treatment information during your visit.
We recommend coming in for a consultation so we can discuss your case specifically and put together a few options for you.
If you have a missing tooth, the empty space can cause your other teeth to shift over time. A dental bridge is used to fill the empty space and preserve the structure of your teeth and smile.
Most dental brindles will last between 10 and 15 years, but it ultimately depends on the amount of care and the level of hygiene practiced.
