Are you tired of feeling self-conscious about the gaps in your teeth? Do you find it difficult to speak or chew properly because of missing teeth? If so, a dental bridge might be just the solution you need. A dental bridge is a restorative procedure that can fill in those unsightly spaces and improve both the appearance and functionality of your smile.
A dental bridge is a custom-made appliance that can replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of two crowns placed on the natural teeth on either side of the gap, with an artificial tooth (or teeth) in between. These artificial teeth, known as pontics, are made from various materials like porcelain, metal alloy, or a combination of both.
The procedure for getting a dental bridge is a straightforward process that typically requires two visits to your dentist. During the first visit, the dentist will prepare the teeth on either side of the gap by removing a small amount of enamel. This is necessary to make room for the dental crowns that will anchor the bridge in place.
Next, impressions of your teeth are taken and sent to a dental lab, where your custom-made bridge will be created. In the meantime, you may be fitted with a temporary bridge to protect your exposed teeth. Once your permanent bridge is ready, you'll return for your second visit. The dentist will remove the temporary bridge and then carefully place and adjust the new one. They will ensure it fits properly and comfortably before cementing it into place.
With proper care and maintenance, a dental bridge can last many years, providing you with improved aesthetics and functionality in your smile!
