At Arcadia Dentistry, we specialize in dental bridges as a reliable and aesthetic solution for replacing missing teeth. Our experienced dentist and team are dedicated to restoring the function and appearance of your smile, helping you regain confidence in your everyday life.
What Are Dental Bridges?
A dental bridge is a custom-made restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of one or more artificial teeth, known as pontics, which are held in place by dental crowns attached to the adjacent teeth. Bridges not only fill the gap left by missing teeth but also prevent the shifting of remaining teeth, maintaining the integrity of your bite and facial structure.
The Process of Getting a Dental Bridge
Getting a dental bridge typically involves two visits to our office. During the first visit, the adjacent teeth are prepared for the crowns, and impressions are taken to custom-make the bridge. A temporary bridge may be placed to protect the area. On the second visit, the custom bridge is fitted, adjusted for comfort, and cemented into place.
The Benefits of Dental Bridges
- Restored Functionality: Bridges enable you to chew and speak with ease.
- Enhanced Appearance: They are crafted to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, seamlessly blending with your smile.
- Prevention of Dental Shifts: By filling gaps, bridges prevent remaining teeth from moving out of position.
- Maintained Facial Structure: Bridges support the natural contour of your face, preventing the sunken appearance often caused by missing teeth.
- Durable Solution: With proper care, dental bridges can last many years.
