A Lasting Tooth Replacement Treatment
Tooth loss affects millions of people, and we know that living without a complete smile can greatly impact your appearance, health, and ability to eat or speak. Finding a solution for missing teeth can help bring back your confidence and improve your teeth’s functionality.
Here at Village Dental, we want to provide our patients with a customized treatment plan that best suits their dental needs.
Understanding a Dental Bridge
When looking for a tooth replacement option, we know it can be difficult to understand which solution is right for your smile. A dental bridge is exactly how its name implies. It’s a bridge that fills the gap between one or more missing teeth.
A bridge is a set of natural-looking prosthetic teeth, also known as pontics, that are placed on your adjacent teeth to support the restorations. With a dental bridge, you won’t have gaps in your smile any longer. You can eat and speak with ease, laugh without hesitation, and have more self-esteem than ever before.
The Procedure for a Dental Bridge
Receiving a dental bridge from our Wayne office is a quick and easy procedure and is done in just two appointments. During your first visit, Dr. Kaur will prepare your anchor teeth by gently reshaping your enamel and capping them with crowns for protection and durability. He’ll also take a digital impression of your teeth where the bridge will be placed so we can have it personally crafted at our dental lab.
Once the bridge is finished, typically two weeks later, you can return for your second visit so Dr. Kaur can place it. First, he’ll check that the shape, size, color fit well before fixing the bridge in place. Once it’s secure, you’ll be ready to enjoy all the benefits of a complete smile.
Do You Have a Dental Bridge That Needs Repairing?
If your dental bridge has broken, become loose, or your restoration has cracked, then please don’t hesitate to give our office a call. Getting your bridge repaired sooner rather than later will eliminate the need to be toothless again.
We recommend that you keep any broken pieces of your bridge or restoration and bring it into your appointment. That way Dr. Kaur can either quickly fix or reattach it or have a new bridge made for you in the dental lab.
