Missing teeth are not only unattractive, but can lead to serious problems. If you are missing one or more teeth, your teeth can begin to drift out of position. This can lead to a change in your bite, loss of additional teeth, tooth decay, gum disease as well as migraine headaches.

 

Bridges stabilize your bite, look and function the same as a natural tooth, improve your smile and protect your teeth from further damage. A Bridge can consist of either metal and porcelain, or full porcelain for amore pleasing aesthetic result. Your Dentist will discuss all options available to you.      

 

 The Procedure

 

Our preferred Dentist will advise you if you are a suitable candidate for this procedure through a thorough oral examination. Three visits will most probably be required with the treatment lasting up to 10 days depending on the number of teeth requiring attention.

 

On the first appointment any decay is removed and the teeth are shaped precisely with a hand piece. In preparation of the treatment a small piece of string is placed around the teeth in the gums. The string is used to gently push away the gums from the teeth so the impression material gets under the prepared teeth. This ensures a precise impression is produced. A temporary bridge is placed on the prepared teeth.

 

During the following 2 appointments the temporary bridge is removed and the custom made bridge produced in the lab is tested out to ensure the color, shape, bite and fit is correct.

 

At the final appointment the temporary bridge is removed and the bridge cemented in place.  The success and the duration of a bridge depends on the health of the gums. The Dentist will offer beneficial aftercare advice.
