You may have a missing tooth or there is an issue with a couple of adjacent teeth. You know you need to get these fixed but implants are not the right choice for you. You may be a prime candidate for a bridge!
WHAT IS A BRIDGE?
A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth definitively to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
WHAT DOES A BRIDGE DO?
A bridge is a custom-made replacement tooth or teeth that fill the space where one or more teeth are missing. The bridge restores your bite and helps keep the natural shape of your face.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN GETTING A BRIDGE
A dental bridge is a fixed dental piece that is made of two dental crowns that effectively “bridge” the gap between your missing teeth. If you think a dental bridge could be right for you, it’s important to understand what to expect during and after this common tooth replacement procedure.
initial Consultation: First thing we’ll do is conduct a thorough dental exam to determine if you are a good candidate for a dental bridge procedure. Scans and X-rays may also be used which can give us a much closer look at your mouth and jaw structure.
Tooth Prep & Impressions: If a dental bridge is a procedure that is right for you, we will prepare and reshape your natural teeth located next to your missing teeth. This allows the healthy teeth to accommodate the dental crowns used to bridge the gap in your smile. This process requires tooth reshaping and the area that is getting reshaped will be numbed with a local anesthetic so you won’t feel a thing.
Dental Bridge Creation & Placement: An optical impression of your reshaped teeth will be taken and uploaded using special computer software. We then use the software to design any crowns you may need for your bridge. After that, we’ll create your custom ceramic bridge into the shapes designed specifically for your crowns.
Once your crowns are created, we fit them accordingly & permanently cement them into place in just one visit!
