Q: What is a dental bridge?
A: A dental bridge is a strong and natural-looking restoration that can replace your missing teeth, giving you a complete and attractive smile. It is made with one or more false teeth as well as two dental crowns. The crowns anchor the bridge by clinging to the natural teeth that lie on both sides of the gap in your smile.
Q: What are the benefits of a dental bridge?
A: A dental bridge can help you in a myriad of ways. It can first replace your teeth, enhance your smile, and boost your self-confidence. It can also restore your smile, give you the ability to speak and chew, add force to your bite, maintain the shape of your face, prevent orthodontic issues, and more.
Q: What is the process of placing a dental bridge?
A: The process involved in treatment is simpler than you might expect. It begins with your dentist numbing your mouth to help you stay comfortable. Then, he will shave the anchoring teeth (remove the enamel) to make room for the dental crowns. When the teeth are the proper shape, your dentist will make an impression and will send that impression to the dental lab. At the lab, a dental technician will custom make your new bridge. When your bridge is created, it will be sent to our office. You will come back for your second appointment to get it cemented over the anchoring teeth.
