Bridging the Gap to Your Perfect Smile

Our team is dedicated to providing personalized, comprehensive dental care, including restoring smiles with the highest quality dental bridges. If you’re exploring options for replacing missing teeth, a dental bridge is a proven, effective solution that not only restores the functionality of your teeth but also revives the aesthetic appeal of your smile. Here’s everything you need to know about our dental bridges service.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring to the adjacent teeth or dental implants. Comprised of at least two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a pontic (or pontics), which are the artificial teeth, bridges are made from durable materials like porcelain to ensure they blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, both in function and appearance.

Types of Dental Bridges

At Premier Arts Dental, we understand that each patient’s needs are unique. That’s why we offer various types of dental bridges, including:

  • Traditional Bridges: The most common type, involving one or more pontics held in place by dental crowns cemented onto the adjacent teeth.
  • Cantilever Bridges: Used when only one side of the missing tooth has ajacent teeth.
  • Maryland Bridges: Consist of a pontic held in place by a porcelain or metal frame bonded onto the backs of the adjacent teeth.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges: Ideal for replacing several teeth, these bridges are supported by implants rather than dental crowns or frameworks.

The dentist will help determine the most suitable type of bridge for your specific situation, considering factors such as the location of the missing tooth, the health of your adjacent teeth, and your personal preferences.

The Process of Getting a Dental Bridge

Your journey to a fully restored smile begins with a detailed consultation. Dr. Shah will assess your oral health, discuss your goals, and recommend the best course of action. Using the latest in dental technology, we’ll make sure your treatment plan is tailored specifically to you. The rest of the process typically includes:

  1. Preparation: The preparation phase involves reshaping the abutment teeth to accommodate the crowns that will support the bridge. Impressions of your teeth are then made, which serve as a model from which the bridge, pontics, and crowns will be crafted by a dental laboratory.
  2. Temporary Solution: While your custom bridge is being fabricated, we’ll place a temporary bridge until the permanent bridge is finished. The temporary bridge will protect the prepared teeth and maintain the aesthetics of your smile.
  3. Fitting and Adjustment: Once your permanent bridge is ready, you’ll return to our office for the final fitting. The dentist will carefully check the fit and make any necessary adjustments to ensure that your new bridge is comfortable and functions properly, followed by permanently cementing it into place.
  4. Follow-Up Care: After your bridge is fitted, we will provide you with detailed care instructions and schedule follow-up visits to monitor your new bridge and adjust it if necessary. Proper oral hygiene, including regular dental check-ups, is crucial to making sure your dental bridge lasts as long as it should.
