Waugh Chapel Dental

Focused on Your Smile!

Dental bridges are a key restorative service we offer at our office, designed to fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth/teeth in between. This solution not only restores the aesthetics of your smile but also its functionality, preventing remaining teeth from shifting out of place.

Understanding Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are custom-made to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, ensuring a comfortable fit and a natural appearance. They can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramics or metal alloys, all of which are durable and designed to withstand the forces of chewing. Bridges are a non-removable prosthetic solution that can last many years with proper care.

The Dental Bridges Process

  • Consultation and Planning: Our team evaluates your needs and designs a bridge that matches the color, shape and size of your natural teeth.
  • Preparation: The teeth adjacent to the missing tooth/teeth are prepared to support the bridge, involving reshaping to ensure a precise fit.
  • Impression Taking: Impressions of your teeth are made to create a model from which the bridge, false tooth and crowns will be made.
  • Temporary Bridge: A temporary bridge is fitted to protect the exposed teeth and gums while the custom bridge is being made.
  • Final Fitting: Once ready, the permanent bridge is adjusted as needed and cemented into place.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

  • Restores the appearance of your smile and maintains the shape of your face
  • Distributes the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
  • Prevents remaining teeth from drifting out of position
  • Enhances the ability to chew and speak properly
