We offer several tooth restoration options that can enhance the look and appearance of your smile. Dental bridges can fill the gap between one or more missing teeth and involve attaching two or more crowns that are fused to nearby teeth. A dental bridge is an effective way to replace missing teeth in adults
A bridge will restore the esthetics of your smile and can also improve the functionality of your mouth so that you can speak and eat properly. Dr. Naran may recommend a bridge in order to prevent the cheeks from sinking in areas where the teeth are missing. A bridge can also restore the bite by replacing missing teeth. If you are self-conscious about a missing tooth or have big gaps in your smile, a bridge can help to enhance the look of your smile.
The bridge procedure is typically performed in three office visits. On the first visit, we will prepare the teeth on either side of the area with missing teeth for a crown. This typically involves removing some of the enamel to make room for the crown material. After the tooth has been reshaped and prepared, we will make an impression to fabricate a custom bridge. We will check the health of your gums on the second visit and then place the bridge on your last visit.
Dental bridges may be an alternative to dental implants for patients with missing teeth. We can determine whether you will be a good candidate for a bridge or other tooth replacement procedures during your consultation. We can effectively restore your smile and help you maintain the shape of your face with a simple bridge procedure.
