Best Dental Tooth Bridges In Lewisville, Tx
Our Lewisville dentist will recommend a bridge when one or more teeth are missing and there are healthy teeth on both sides of the open space. Dental bridges are fixed and cemented to the supporting teeth. Or in some cases fixed on a dental implant that has been placed next to the missing teeth. Replacing the missing teeth will restore your ability to properly chew and speak besides it’s cosmetic dental advantages. They can be made from three types of material, solid gold for reliable long wear, porcelain fused to a gold base for strength and beauty, and high-strength metal-free porcelain for optimum cosmetic results.
How Long Does it Take To Get a Bridge?
It normally takes two visits for our dentist to complete the bridge. On your first visit your supporting teeth are prepared by shaping and reducing their size in order to make room for the dental crowns that will slide of the supporting teeth. Next an impression of the abutments or supporting teeth is made and sent off to our dental lab. Finally a temporary bridge is inserted to protect the abutments as well as the space between them.
In most cases on your 2nd appointment the permanent bridge is placed and adjusted to ensure proper fit and function. If you are happy with the fit of the bridge then the dentist will proceed with permanently cementing into place.
With proper care, your new bridge will increase your overall health and instill confidence for years to come; so stop by and see one of our cosmetic dentists.
