What Is a Dental Bridge?
Similar to dental crowns, a dental bridge is an appliance that is used to replace a lost permanent tooth and preserve the spacing of the remaining healthy teeth. It consists of two crowns that anchor to the surrounding teeth with one dental crown in the middle for the missing one.
Dental bridges are created in the same way as crowns. For dental bridges, two teeth are altered to accommodate the appliance, impressions are taken to include these teeth, and two temporary crowns are placed. When the bridge’s fabrication is completed, you return to our office to have this single strong piece restore your smile’s function and beauty.
What Are The Benefits of Dental Bridges?
Year after year, dental bridges continue to be a leading tooth-replacement solution for patients of all ages because they are:
- Crafted from high-quality materials, making them extremely durable.
- Custom-made for each patient’s unique dental needs, which allows them to blend in seamlessly.
- More cost-effective than other solutions for tooth loss, like dental implants.
- Able to last 10+ years with proper care.
How Do I Know If I Need a Dental Bridge?
If you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth in a row, then you should consider a dental bridge. Even if the gap in your smile is toward the back of your mouth and is hardly noticeable, there are unintended repercussions that can follow, like shifting of your adjacent teeth and difficulty chewing. Fortunately, you can prevent that from happening by scheduling an appointment with Dr. Nauman to discuss your tooth replacement options.
