A dental bridge is a great way to replace missing teeth, as it uses the surrounding teeth for support. This means that your smile will look natural and beautiful after treatment.
At Advanced Dental Care & Aesthetics, we use the latest technology and techniques to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care. We understand the importance of a healthy and beautiful smile, which is why we offer dental bridges as a part of our comprehensive dental services.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is an artificial tooth or teeth, known as a pontic, which is supported by adjacent natural teeth or implants. A dental bridge can be used to replace one or more missing teeth, and can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, or metal.
What are the Benefits of a Dental Bridge?
There are many benefits of choosing a dental bridge to replace missing teeth, including:
- Restore Your Smile: A dental bridge can restore your smile by replacing one or more missing teeth.
- Improve Your Oral Health: Bridges can help to improve your oral health by preventing your remaining teeth from shifting out of place.
- Maintain Facial Shape: Bridges can help to maintain the shape of your face by filling in the gaps left by missing teeth.
- Prevent Future Oral Health Problems: Bridges can also help to prevent future oral health problems, such as gum disease and tooth decay.
What is the Process for Getting a Dental Bridge?
The process for getting a dental bridge typically takes place over the course of two or three dental visits. During your first visit, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth, which will be used to create your custom-made bridge. Your bridge will be created in a dental laboratory, and will be ready for installation during your second visit.
During your second visit, your dentist will numb your teeth and prepare them for the placement of the bridge. The pontic will be attached to the adjacent teeth, known as abutment teeth, with the help of dental cement or metal clasps. Once your bridge is in place, your dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit.
You will need to come in for a follow-up visit after your bridge has been installed, so that your dentist can check on its progress and make sure that you are happy with the results.
