What Is a Dental Bridge?
A complete smile is a healthy smile. Dr. Chen can use a dental bridge to replace a single lost tooth or two or more teeth adjacent to one another. A bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth that are attached to crowns. With the proper care, a bridge may last up to 10 years. Dr. Chen will prepare the teeth that will hold the crowns and take an impression of your smile. You will receive a temporary bridge to wear while your permanent restoration is crafted in a lab. That permanent bridge will be placed when you come in for your second visit.
A bridge may be the perfect solution for you if you want to fill in a space in your smile. It is a great restoration alternative if you are not interested in partial dentures or cannot afford dental implants. Some of the benefits of a bridge include:
- Restoring your oral function and improving your ability to speak.
- Enhancing the appearance of your smile and taking years off of your face by restoring its volume
- Eliminating the need for a partial denture
- Ensuring that your remaining teeth remain in their proper positions.
