Dental bridges are fixed dental restorations used to replace one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth adjacent teeth.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is made to fill the gap between teeth when one or more teeth become lost due to an injury or tooth decay. This dental bridge is made of two crowns that get placed on either side of the gap between missing teeth. False teeth become placed between these two teeth. Porcelain remains a frequently used material from which to create a bridge because it looks quite natural.

Why do you need dental bridges?

There are many reasons that a dental bridge may be required. Some of those reasons include:

• Retain or regain your lovely smile.
• Be able to chew correctly.
• Be able to speak correctly.
• Keep your face looking the same.
• Keep your teeth adequately aligned when a tooth is missing.

What happens during the process of obtaining dental bridges?

You’ll require two appointments to have the bridge made and fitted into your mouth. At the initial appointment, Dr. Buccellato of Alpine Dentistry prepares your enamel to receive the necessary crowns for the bridge. Next, this dentist uses the latest in technology to take a mold of your mouth and teeth to create the bridge. This information is sent to a dental lab. When you return for your second appointment, your new bridge is placed and fitted into your mouth.

If you need a dental bridge, contact Dr. Buccellato and our professional, friendly staff today for an appointment. Our office schedule a time to discuss your next step toward having a bridge made. Before you know it, you’ll have the ability to chew and speak correctly, as well as regaining your beautiful smile.
