Can you explain what a dental bridge is? A dental bridge is a common procedure to replace one or more missing teeth. It’s called a bridge because a restorative tooth-like structure is placed in the missing tooth’s space and “bridges” the gap once there.
What supports the dental bridge? The restorative tooth-like structure, most commonly a dental crown, is supported by dental crowns placed over the supporting (neighboring) teeth.
Is a dental bridge procedure uncomfortable? The procedure itself is similar to a dental crown procedure. If you’re concerned about discomfort, please make sure to ask us about sedation dentistry available from our dentists near you at SND Family Dental.
Does a dental bridge look like a natural tooth? Depending on the patient’s material for the dental crown portion of the procedure, the restoration can be color-matched to match the appearance of a natural tooth. When you visit us for your tooth replacement consultation, our doctors will provide information on the various materials used during your procedure.
What do most patients consider the number one advantage of a dental bridge over a dental implant or partial dentures? The advantage of a dental implant is the quick treatment time. The advantage of partial dentures is comfort.
