Replace Missing Teeth with a Dental Bridge
If you suffer from tooth loss, we know that living without a complete smile can take a toll on your health and happiness. Here at Warren Family Dentistry, we offer dental bridges to restore your smile if you’re missing multiple teeth across your upper or lower arch.
A dental bridge is made up of two or more crowns that bridge the gap between your missing teeth. They’re supported by your surrounding natural teeth or by dental implants.
During your consultation with our team, we’ll take a look at your dental health and determine a treatment plan that’s best for you.
Benefits of a Dental Bridge
When looking for a tooth replacement option at our Warren dental office, we’ll always lay out your options and help you decide on the right treatment for your needs. Dental bridges offer many different benefits for you and your smile. With a dental bridge we’ll be able to:
- Restore your smile
- Help improve your abilities to eat and speak
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
How Do You Place a Bridge?
When it comes time to place your dental bridge, the entire treatment will be done within just two appointments. At your first visit, we’ll prepare your anchor teeth by reshaping them so that the dental crowns can be secured precisely over them.
We’ll also need to take impressions of your teeth where the bridge will be placed so our dental lab can carefully craft a restoration just for you.
After a two week period, you will come back for your second visit and our team can place your new dental bridge. Before fastening the bridge over your prepared teeth, we’ll check that the shape, size, color fit perfectly and blend seamlessly with your smile.
Once it’s been placed, you’ll be able to leave our office with a complete and beautiful smile.
