Dental bridges are a non-removable restoration. They are custom-made to provide you with a natural-looking, functional and long-lasting result after you have lost one or more teeth. Bridges consist of a prosthetic tooth or teeth, which are anchored in your mouth with crowns attached to the teeth or implants on either side of the gap in your smile.
It typically takes two appointments to complete a dental bridge. The first appointment involves preparing the teeth on either side to receive the crowns and taking an impression. The bridge and crowns are then created. At the second appointment, our dentist will place the bridge, check that it fits properly and anchor it into place.
There are many benefits to receiving a dental bridge, including:
- Restoring your oral function, including your ability to speak, chew and smile normally
- Preserving your bite by keeping your remaining teeth in their proper positions
- Alleviating stress on your bite
- Replacing or preventing the need for removable partial dentures
- Supporting the shape and volume of your face
