Welcome to Elegant Edge Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, where we take pride in transforming smiles and ensuring the overall health of your teeth and gums. If you’re missing one or more teeth, dental bridges can provide you with a reliable and aesthetically pleasing solution. Let’s explore the world of dental bridges and how they can help you regain your complete, confident smile.

What Are Dental Bridges?

A dental bridge is a custom-made dental appliance designed to bridge the gap left by missing teeth. It consists of three main components:

  • Pontic: The artificial tooth or teeth that replace the missing ones.
  • Abutments: The natural teeth or dental implants on either side of the gap that support the pontic.
  • Crowns: These cover the abutments and serve as anchors for the pontic.

The Benefits of Dental Bridges

  • Restored Functionality
    Dental bridges allow you to speak, chew, and bite with confidence. You won’t need to worry about the discomfort or inconvenience of missing teeth.
  • Enhanced Aesthetics
    Bridges are custom-designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, ensuring that your smile looks and feels whole.
  • Preventing Shifting
    A dental bridge helps prevent the neighboring teeth from shifting into the gap, which can lead to alignment issues and oral health complications.
  • Improved Oral Health
    By filling the gap with a dental bridge, you reduce the risk of oral health problems such as gum disease, bite irregularities, and jaw joint disorders.
  • Quick and Non-Invasive
    Getting a dental bridge is a relatively quick and non-invasive procedure, and it doesn’t require surgery or dental implant placement.

The Bridge Placement Process

Receiving a dental bridge typically involves the following steps:

  1. Consultation: We’ll conduct a thorough examination of your oral health and discuss your specific dental concerns and goals.
  2. Tooth Preparation: If the abutment teeth are natural, they may need some minor reshaping to accommodate the crowns.
  3. Impressions: We’ll take impressions of your teeth, which will serve as the basis for crafting your custom bridge.
  4. Temporary Bridge: While your bridge is being fabricated in our dental laboratory, we may place a temporary bridge to protect the exposed teeth and maintain your appearance.
  5. Bridge Placement: Once your custom bridge is ready, we’ll securely attach it to your abutment teeth, completing your restoration.
  6. Regular Check-ups: Routine follow-up appointments are essential to ensure the health and stability of your dental bridge.
