Missing teeth make it difficult to chew without pain or smile without embarrassment. If missing teeth are not promptly treated, they can cause your remaining teeth to shift and become crooked. Dental bridges have been used for years to replace missing teeth.
In a dental bridge, your existing teeth are used as anchors. The dental bridge fills in the gap caused by missing teeth. Dental bridges can be composed of various materials, including gold, metal, alloys, or porcelain.
If you would like your dental bridge to fit in seamlessly with the rest of your beautiful smile, a porcelain bridge is a good option for you. Porcelain is durable and stain resistant. Best of all, porcelain imitates the color and reflective properties of natural teeth.
During the dental bridge process, our doctor will administer a local anesthetic to numb the area. This will allow you to remain comfortable throughout the process. If the patient requires additional peace of mind, dental sedation is available.
Getting used to your dental bridge should only take a few days. You should eat soft foods for the day or two after your procedure. Within a week, you will return to eating all your favorites, speaking with ease, and smiling with confidence.
