If you are seeking a tooth replacement solution, you may have explored options such as dentures and dental implants. An alternative to these is a dental bridge. A bridge is cost-effective, fixed in place and completed in just two appointments. It replaces one missing tooth or several missing teeth in a row. When the gaps in your smile are filled, you’ll feel greater self-confidence and have the full function of your teeth.
The Details of a Dental Bridge Procedure
A dental bridge is made up of a row of dental crowns. The number of crowns in your bridge will depend on how many teeth you require the replacement of. For example, if you have two missing teeth, your bridge will likely have four crowns. The crowns on either end will attach to the teeth that neighbor the gap in your smile. The ones in the middle, then, are suspended into the open space where your teeth used to be.
What to Expect When Getting a Dental Bridge
We’ll have a consultation with you to examine your teeth. We may discuss other tooth replacement possibilities if we feel that they are appropriate for you. Once you have decided on getting a bridge, we’ll gather information that our laboratory will need to create your bridge. Each bridge is custom-made at our local laboratory so that it is color-matched to the rest of your teeth and looks perfectly natural.
Once the laboratory has sent back your completed bridge, you can return to our office for your second and final visit. At this appointment, we’ll fit your bridge into your mouth and cement it into place.
Ensuring Long-Lasting Results
You want your bridge, or any dental work, to last for as long as possible. It’s important that you brush and floss around your bridge. We’ll also instruct you in how to carefully clean under your bridge. Your regular checkups are vital to making sure that your bridge stays in good shape. With the proper maintenance, your bridge can last for ten years or more.
