Bridge the Gap With Expert Care
If you have a tooth that cannot be salvaged with a filling or crown, a dental bridge may be the best solution. Dental bridges are tooth-shaped and tooth-colored restorations that are designed to fill a gap between two teeth where a tooth is missing. These are sometimes called “fixed partial dentures”. They are made of gold, alloys, and porcelain, and attach to the surrounding teeth to “bridge” the gap.
If you’re considering dental bridges in Reno, NV, and the Carson City and Sparks, NV, areas, our experienced team offers quality restorations for your smile.
Benefits of Bridges
Bridges are a great choice if you want a functioning tooth but aren’t prepared to commit to a dental implant. They look just like your natural teeth, restore functionality to your bite, and prevent your other teeth from shifting out of place. They are extremely beneficial to long-term dental health.
The Dental Bridge Process
Bridges generally require two dental appointments. The first appointment will consist of creating a mold of your teeth and preparing the surrounding teeth for crowns to anchor the bridge. The mold of your teeth will be sent to a lab to create the bridge. Creating the bridge will take about two weeks. The next appointment will be to place the bridge and adjust the fit.
Bridges blend perfectly with your smile, and once you are all done and fitted, no one will be able to tell you are wearing it.
Dr. Atencio will encourage you to care for bridges in the same way you care for your natural teeth. Brushing and flossing are important and recommended as maintenance for your bridge. If you have any discomfort, contact our office, so we can inspect your bridge for proper fitting.
