Dental Bridge: The Best Appliance to Fill the Space in Your Smile

Posted .

Are you looking for a solution that can fill the gap between your teeth and give you an attractive smile? If so, our Affordable Dentistry and Orthodontics dental team has a recommendation for you! A dental bridge can give you exactly what you’re looking for.

A dental bridge can help your smile in a myriad of ways. In fact, it can:

-Reserve your facial features

-Repair your smile and replace your missing teeth

-Add strength and force to your bite

-Give you the ability to chew and talk properly

-Keep the surrounding natural teeth from wandering out of position

Fortunately, this can all be accomplished with two easy and simple visits to Affordable Dentistry and Orthodontics. Your first visit will involve Dr. Duane Taylor preparing the remaining natural teeth that lie on both sides of the gap. They will be prepared by trimming the enamel, which is the outer hard shell of the tooth, to allow the dental bridge to anchor. Once the teeth are the right shape and size, your dentist will make impressions of those teeth and the surrounding structures and will send the impressions to a professional dental lab. While you wait for your bridge to be created, your dentist will place temporary crowns over the abutments, which is another name for the shaved neighboring teeth.

Once your dental bridge is ready, you will come into Affordable Dentistry and Orthodontics for your second appointment. This appointment will involve your dentist assessing and adjusting your new bridge to make sure it fits perfectly in the gap of your mouth. Once it has the perfect fit and appearance, Dr. Duane Taylor will cement the bridge into place.
