If you are missing a tooth or series of teeth, an all-porcelain dental bridge may offer the ideal solution. We place dental bridges that provide a natural appearance, reduce a risk of gum disease, and correct speech and bite difficulties. In addition, dental bridges eliminate the possibility that your remaining teeth will shift to fill the gap left by a missing tooth.
Dental bridges consist of a custom-made false tooth supported on either side by one or two porcelain crowns or composite bonding material. The dental bridge is used to aesthetically eliminate the gap left by a missing tooth, giving the patient a decade or more of comfortable wear and beautiful smiles.
Dental bridges, regardless of type, are placed in two or three visits. In your first appointment, we will prepare the teeth surrounding the gap, take an impression, and place a temporary bridge. The impression is used as a guide for the crafting of the bridge’s false tooth and crowns. You will wear the temporary bridge until your next appointment, during which your permanent bridge will be cemented into place, fitted, checked, and adjusted.
All the dental bridges we place are completely natural-looking and comfortable.
