Tooth loss not only affects how your smile looks, but also the way you eat, how you speak and the alignment of your other teeth. A dental bridge is a device used to replace missing teeth that attaches to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth.
Dental bridges can be fixed or removable. Fixed bridges are bonded into place, while removable bridges can be taken out and cleaned. Fixed bridges offer more stability than their removable counterparts. A dental bridge is usually completed in two visits. We will begin by preparing the natural, abutment teeth so that the ends of the bridge will fit comfortably on each one. Next, we will take an impression of your teeth create your new dental bridge. In the meantime, we’ll fit you with a natural-looking temporary restoration. During your second visit, your new dental bridge will be fitted comfortably into your mouth. We’ll make every effort to ensure that the new bridge looks and feels natural. Then we’ll cement the bridge, leaving you with a beautifully restored smile.
