We will prescribe a bridge when one or
more teeth are missing and there are healthy teeth on both sides of the open
space. Bridges can be made from three types of material solid gold for
reliable long wear porcelain fused to a gold base for strength and beauty and
high strength metal free porcelain for optimum cosmetic results. After your
mouth has been anesthetized we begin by preparing your teeth to make room for
the new bridge. When your teeth have been prepared to our satisfaction an
impression is taken of the prepared teeth that will be sent to a dental lab.
A temporary bridge is then used to keep the teeth protected until your permanent
bridge is placed. When the impression arrives at the dental lab a model of
your teeth is made and work begins to create your new bridge. We use the
services of top lab technicians who will artistically recreate the look and feel
of your natural teeth. When you return for your final visit the bridge will be
customized to your bite and cemented permanently in your mouth using the
latest technology in dental cements with proper care. Your new bridge will
increase your overall health and instill confidence for years to come.
