How Dental Bridges Fix Your Smile

Dealing with tooth loss can be a challenge for anyone. Whether you lost a tooth to an accident or a severely infected root canal, the result is the same.

Not only is your appearance compromised by a big gap in your smile, but you also have to learn to eat and speak differently to avoid discomfort. Of course, there’s no question you need to have the tooth replaced, but what option is right for you?

Fixed Dental Bridges

Today there are many options available for replacing a missing tooth. One method that has stood the test of time is fixed dental bridges. This type of prosthetic uses an artificial tooth to fill the gap in your smile and allows you to eat and speak comfortably.

A bridge typically includes a single artificial tooth (pontic) that is suspended between two crowns affixed to adjacent teeth. The process for placing a dental bridge typically involves two or three appointments.

  • During the first appointment, the teeth on either side of the space are prepared so the crowns will fit naturally. Next, we will take impressions of your teeth that are used to create your temporary bridge, then this information is sent do a dental lab where your final restoration will be created.
  • In about two weeks, your new bridge will be ready, and we will have you return to our office to have it placed. We’ll check the restoration for proper fit, adjust your bite for comfort, and cement the bridge securely in place.

With proper care, your new bridge will last as long as 15 years.
