Bridges at Bright Choice Dental

WHAT IS A DENTAL BRIDGE?

A dental bridge is a restoration that helps to replace one or more missing natural teeth. The bridge attaches permanently to surrounding teeth, so it won’t need to be removed and cleaned like a prosthetic appliance. Bridge work is specifically made for each patient, providing a natural and realistic appearance. Most fixed bridges can last for many years before they’ll need to be replaced completely.

WHY WOULD A DENTAL BRIDGE BE NEEDED?

The most common reason for needing a bridge is because you’re missing a tooth. You might want to avoid having surgery done to place an implant or you’re not a good candidate for implant surgery. Bridge work helps to restore the fullness of your smile while improving functionality. Because of your bridge, your surrounding teeth are less likely to become crooked and crowded.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR A DENTAL BRIDGE?

We can examine your teeth to determine if a fixed bridge is right for you. In order for the bridge to fit properly and securely, it’ll need to be placed over two surrounding teeth. In general, the larger the bridge, the less secure it will be. We may recommend implants to hold a bridge if we feel it wouldn’t be secure enough on its own.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE DENTAL BRIDGE PROCEDURE?

The procedure begins with a local anesthetic to numb one area of the mouth. We then shape and file down the surrounding teeth. This will help to make room for the new fixed bridge. Impressions are then taken and will be used to create both a temporary and permanent bridge. You’ll go home with the temporary one in place and will need to come back for a second appointment for the permanent. The temporary bridge is removed and the permanent one placed securely using a dental-grade adhesive. We polish and adjust the new bridge and provide you with instructions on how to brush and floss around it.

Very considerate care in my procedure. I was a little anxious but Dr. G made me feel more comfortable and at ease.

John A.

It was great. The staff was polite and very helpful and the dentist explained what she had to do and she was gentle doing her work with no pain. I called them and explained my problem of an old filling falling out and they fit me into their schedule the same day.
