What are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are specially crafted structures comprised of two dental crowns attached to either side of one or more replacement teeth called pontics. Each of these restorations is crafted from natural-looking and completely customizable materials such as ceramic or porcelain to blend in with your existing teeth. Each of the crowns are secured to your existing teeth on either side of the gap in your arch. They hold the replacement teeth in place, restoring the look and function of your smile.

Why is it Important to Replace Missing Teeth?

Many patients aren’t aware of the importance of replacing missing teeth. Not only do your teeth make it easy to break down food so your body can easily digest the nutrients contained in what you’re eating, but they also provide vital stimulation to your jawbone. Each of your teeth serve several purposes. When they go missing and no longer hold your surrounding teeth in place, your existing ones will slowly begin to drift, causing orthodontic issues like bite problems. By replacing your missing teeth with a dental bridge, not only will the restoration look natural and function well, but your artificial teeth will also preserve your facial structure and alignment. 

What is the Process of Getting a Dental Bridge?

Getting a dental bridge typically takes place over the course of two to three appointments. It can be broken down into several simple steps, including:

  • A consultation to examine your oral structure and develop a treatment plan
  • Taking impressions of the area where your teeth are missing
  • Sending the mold and measurements to our dental laboratory
  • Receiving your permanent restoration and calling you in to place it
  • Cementing your restoration to your natural teeth to restore your smile

Patients agree that the process of rebuilding their smile is one that’s well worth an investment of their time. After working with our professionals, you’ll be able to rest assured knowing that your new smile will look and function as great as ever!
