Bridges Q & A

Dobson Warner Dentistry

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. It earns its name because it is a bridge over a gap between teeth. A bridge is made of one or more artificial teeth anchored to crowns on either side of the gap. The artificial or false tooth is constructed from the finest materials, which are usually gold, porcelain, or metal alloys.

Dental bridges are permanent and remain in place at all times. The dedicated team at Dobson Warner Dentistry gives you instructions on how to care for, clean, and floss around your dental bridge.

Who needs a dental bridge?

Generally, bridges are the best solution in the following situations:

  • Single tooth replacement
  • Multiple teeth replacement
  • Dissatisfaction with removable dentures

Typically, a dental bridge can be placed in two office visits. Dr. Trang goes over your needs and goals at your consultation so you’ll know exactly what to expect.

What are the benefits of dental bridges?

Dental bridges are a popular choice because they offer significant benefits, including:

  • Improves the look of your smile
  • Restores proper chewing
  • Reinstates proper speech
  • Safeguards your face shape
  • Maintains the form of your bite
  • Stops adjacent teeth from shifting

At your consultation, the diligent team at Dobson Warner Dentistry helps you determine if a dental bridge is right for you.

How are dental bridges installed?

If your mouth is in good shape and Dr. Trang determines that you’re a candidate for a dental bridge, he is usually able to complete the process in two appointments.

At the first appointment, he gently sands off a thin layer of enamel from your anchor teeth and makes an impression for the lab. You’ll leave with a temporary crown to wear until the customized bridge is ready.

When you return, you’ll receive local anesthesia, so you won’t feel anything while the permanent bridge is affixed to your anchor teeth. Once in the proper position, Trang polishes up your new bridge so it shines and sparkles and looks just like your natural teeth.
