Dental Bridges and Bridge Work
When a patient is missing one or multiple teeth, one option for replacement is a dental bridge. A dental bridge can replace one or multiple teeth and can be made of many different materials dependent on location, esthetic needs and functional needs.
Bridges work can:
- Restore your smile
- Restore your ability to properly chew and speak
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
In this example one molar is missing.
Step 1: The teeth on either side of the missing tooth are prepared for crowns.
Step 2: A bridge is fabricated specifically for your situation and designed to fit, feel and look like your natural teeth.
Step 3: Once the bridge has been inspected and checked for a great fit and beautiful esthetics we will cement permanently in place.
