“Bridge” the Gaps Between Your Teeth

If you have one or more missing teeth in a row, we may recommend that you receive a dental bridge to replace your lost dentition. This treatment is a tried and true way to enhance dental function and prevent the remaining natural teeth from drifting out of place. If you require a bridge, our team will put our experience and expertise to work with the goal of crafting a restoration that is sturdy, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing.

The Dental Bridge Process

creating dental bridge

If you are receiving a traditional bridge, your dentist must prepare the abutment teeth by removing some of their enamel. This is necessary to ensure that they fit well beneath their crowns. Then, we will take impressions of your teeth. The impressions, along with detailed instructions, will go to a dental laboratory, which will create your permanent restoration. In the meantime, you will wear a temporary bridge. When your permanent one is ready, we will verify its fit before we attach it to your abutment teeth.

The process is somewhat different for the other types of bridges. For example, if you opt for implant-supported tooth replacement, your treatment will take place across several months and multiple dental appointments. Despite this extended timeline, many patients who choose implant-supported bridges are happy with their decision due to the many benefits that dental implants offer.
