Dental Bridge Solutions For Missing Teeth in Wetaskiwin
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a dental restoration that can be used to replace one or two missing teeth. Dental bridges are made with a series of dental crowns. We call them “dental bridges” because the line of crowns fills in, or “bridges,” the gap left by a missing tooth or missing teeth.
Benefits of Dental Bridges
There are many benefits to using a dental bridge. Dental bridges can help improve you smile, ultimately leading to greater self-confidence. Here are just a few of the benefits dental bridges offer:
- Dental bridges are created using high-quality, porcelain crowns that are specifically made to look and feel just like natural teeth.
- Dental bridges are both comfortable and functional. A dental bridge will replace 1-2 missing teeth and give you a full, functional set of teeth again.
- Dental bridges are more affordable than dental implants.
- Dental bridges can be especially helpful in situations where a patient requires replacement crowns on either side of a gap.
With the various benefits that bridges can offer, this is a restorative dentistry option that may be the answer you have been looking for!
The Dental Bridge Process
First, Dr. Mahoney will prepare your adjacent teeth for crowns at his office in Wetaskiwin. After the preparation process, we take impressions to send to the dental lab that produces your bridge and crowns. In the meantime, you will wear a temporary bridge to protect the prepared teeth and keep your teeth from shifting.
Once your permanent dental implements arrive from the lab, we place the crowns and bridge into their places. You will be able to leave the office that day with a full, beautiful smile.
Dr. Mahoney and our staff show sensitivity and understanding to those who are missing teeth and can offer several restorative options that will help you feel comfortable with your smile again.
If you or a loved one are missing teeth, call us today to speak with our dentist in Wetaskiwin. Dr. Mahoney would be happy to discuss your options and help you find a solution!
