Keep reading below to learn more about dental bridges and how they may benefit you and your oral health.

What Is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a custom-designed restorative treatment that bridges the gap left by one or more missing teeth. They’re made up of prosthetic teeth, also called pontics, that rely on the adjacent teeth on each side for support. Dr. Behbood will always customize your dental bridge to ensure it blends in seamlessly with your natural teeth for a beautiful smile.

The Benefits of Dental Bridges

There are numerous benefits to receiving a dental bridge, including:

  • Prevents jawbone deterioration
  • Prevents your surrounding teeth from shifting
  • Evenly distributes chewing force
  • Customized uniquely for you
  • Prevents opposing teeth from elongating to compensate for missing teeth
  • Can be completed in just two appointments
  • Restores your bite
  • Enables you to speak with more clarity

When Patients Need a Dental Bridge

There are many restoration options to choose from. Depending on your oral health needs, dental bridges can be the perfect solution for restoring your smile. Some of the top reasons to choose a dental bridge include:

  • Filling the empty spaces left by missing teeth
  • Preventing natural teeth from shifting out of their proper alignment
  • Maintaining facial shape
  • Upgrading from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance 
  • Restoring your chewing and speaking ability

The Dental Bridge Treatment Process

If you decide that a dental bridge is the best treatment option, the entire process can be completed in just two appointments to our Warren office. At your first visit, we’ll prepare your anchor teeth by reshaping them as needed so the porcelain crowns will fit perfectly. Dr. Behbood will also take impressions of your teeth so your restoration can be customized at the dental lab. 

After two weeks, you’ll return to our Warren dental office so we can place your dental bridge. Before fastening the bridge over your prepared teeth, Dr. Behbood will check the size, shape, and color to ensure a perfect fit and a seamless blend. She’ll then cement it into place with a dental resin. Afterward, you’ll be ready to walk out of our office with the smile you’ve been waiting for.
