If you’re missing one or more of your permanent teeth, our Brent A. Spear, DDS team is happy to tell you that there are many restorative options that will finally give you the oral health and smile results you are looking for! However, if you’re interested in permanently replacing your teeth with a strong product that does not require surgery, a dental bridge is for you!
A dental bridge in Fort Worth, Texas, is a strong and reliable option that is made of two or more dental crowns and artificial teeth. The crowns anchor the bridge into place and the artificial teeth fill the gap in your mouth and complete your smile.
What are the benefits of a dental bridge?
A dental bridge can be beneficial in many ways. It can restore your smile, give you the ability to chew and speak, and maintain the shape of your face. A bridge can also give you the force you need in your bite and prevent remaining natural teeth from drifting out of position.
What is the process of placing a dental bridge?
The process of placing a bridge is easy and painless. However, it may require two visits to our office. During the first visit, your dentist will prepare the neighboring teeth by removing a section of the enamel. This will make it possible to place the bridge over the teeth. Then, your dentist will make impressions of your teeth and will send those impressions to a dental lab. While you wait for your bridge to be created, you will be given a temporary bridge.
During your second visit, your dentist will remove your temporary bridge and will check and adjust your new bridge. If the bridge fits perfectly in your mouth, your dentist will cement it into place.
A dental bridge is a beneficial option that can give you the results you are looking for.
