If you are missing teeth due to trauma, gum disease, or untreated cavities, you may struggle to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. A dental bridge is a completely customized set of prosthetic teeth that fills the gap in your smile and provides lasting comfort.
Why is a dental bridge the solution for me?
A bridge renews your ability to chew and speak properly: A bridge not only immediately improves your quality of life, but also prevents surrounding teeth from shifting. This lowers your risk of misalignment in the future.
Bridges are custom-made to blend with your natural teeth: Your dentist can create a stunning bridge that fits seamlessly into your smile and complements your unique facial features.
A bridge can be supported by dental implants: If you choose an implant-supported restoration, your healthy teeth will not need to be altered to support a bridge.
What is involved in fabricating a dental bridge?
Your dentist will resize your surrounding teeth to make room for your dental bridge and the supporting dental crowns.
He or she will then take impressions of your smile to design a bridge that looks and feels very natural for years to come.
Your impressions will be sent to a lab, where a skilled technician will create your custom bridge.
Once your dental bridge is ready for placement, your dentist will secure it in place using dental cement.
Your dentist will perform dental implant surgery.
Four to six months later, your dentist will place your abutments and take impressions of your smile.
Your impressions will be sent to a trusted lab.
When your permanent bridge is ready, your dentist will secure it to your dental implants.
