Are you trying to decide on improving your smile with a dental bridge? If so, we are happy to help you know more about dental bridges so you can make an educated decision!

Dental bridges are strong, successful appliances that can last longer than 15 years if you take proper care of it. The best way to care for the appliance is by brushing your teeth every night, flossing your smile at least once a day, and attending your dental checkups. These caring techniques will keep your bridge in tip-top shape and will give you the reliable teeth and beautiful smile you are looking for.

A dental bridge is generally made of two or more dental crowns and false teeth. The dental crowns anchor the bridge into place and the false teeth fill the gap in your smile. The placement of the bridge usually requires two visits to our dental office. We will meet with you, prepare your teeth for the dental crowns, and send the measurements to a dental lab where your bridge will be created. Once the bridge is made, we will secure the bridge into place, giving you the smile you are looking for.

If you are interested in restoring your smile, improving your oral health, increasing the force in your bite, having the ability to chew and speak properly, maintaining the shape of your face, and preventing remaining teeth from drifting out of place, a dental bridge is for you! Please feel free to call our office today and schedule an appointment.
