About Dental Bridge Design And Placement

Are you missing one tooth? Perhaps you are missing two or three teeth that sit next to one another in your smile. Whether it’s a smaller or larger space that you’re experiencing in the wake of tooth loss, the frustration is usually equally intense. The good news? We offer dental bridges to replace your tooth loss pattern, which means you can quickly complete your smile for exceptional function, a beautiful smile, and the good feeling that comes with restored oral health. As for the details of how you will receive this bridge, we encourage you to consider some basic information to gain a clearer picture of what to expect.

A Consultation, Of Course

All prosthetics require a consultation because there is no one-size-fits-all option. Instead, it is important that we take a look at your smile to ensure a bridge is the right choice for you. We will explain what to expect and answer your questions about wear, care, and anything else you may feel curious about.

Expect Customized Design

Your dental bridge must be designed according to the unique dimensions of your smile as well as the shade of your surrounding teeth. The goal is to provide you with a complete, balanced bite and a smile that looks natural, so you feel fully restored. To accomplish this, we will take impressions of your teeth, which will provide a ceramicist will the necessary information to create your bridge. We will also use beautiful materials for the replacement teeth – for the most part, we rely on E. Max porcelain or Zirconia, depending on the location of your missing teeth. You can expect a natural looking, consistent smile.

Thoughtful Placement

First, we will place the dental bridge over your teeth to take stock of any necessary changes. Once we feel certain the bridge blends with your smile shade and your bite, we will cement the end crowns over your natural remaining teeth (called anchor teeth – or abutment teeth) for many years of enjoyable wear.
