Bridges

Dental bridges are a great way to replace a missing tooth or several missing teeth. In other words, they can close that gap in your smile. Your existing teeth are used to literally create a bridge to cross the area where your tooth is missing. Bridges can be made from metal, gold, alloys, or porcelain to ensure that they are durable and long lasting. There are four main types of bridges: traditional fixed bridges; Cantilever bridges; Maryland bridges; implant-supported bridges.

The procedure to create your permanent bridge is typically split into 2 appointments. In the first appointment the tooth or teeth surrounding the missing tooth are prepped and an impression is taken. In between your two visits you will have a temporary bridge placed so that the prepped teeth are covered and protected. During this time the impressions and models of your teeth are sent to our lab so that your customized bridge can be fabricated. Finally, at your second appointment the bridge is permanently cemented and adjusted to fit perfectly.

If you are missing a tooth you should strongly consider having it replaced. Aside from aesthetics of a missing tooth, having one may also cause structural changes to your mouth and jaw, in addition to giving you difficulties speaking or eating.
