If you are missing teeth, you may be a candidate for a dental bridge. A dental bridge contains prosthetic teeth to “bridge” gaps in your smile. Dental implant bridges are permanently anchored to neighboring teeth either using a dental crown or a dental implant. Dental bridges, like dental crowns, are made of durable tooth like material for natural looking results.
The process for a dental bridge typically takes place over the course of 2 – 3 visits. Your first visit will include a comprehensive examination where the entire oral system is evaluated including the mouth, gums, teeth, jaw joints and muscles. Next, our dentists will outline your treatment plan and design your restoration. You may be fitted with a temporary dental bridge while your permanent restoration is being fabricated. On the final visit, the permanent restoration will be secured in place. Any special care techniques will be reviewed at this time.
