What Are Dental Bridges?

If one or more of your teeth are missing, it is more than just a cosmetic issue — gaps in your teeth may cause other teeth to shift out of place. This can result in unnecessary tension in your bite, increased pain during chewing, or even impaired speech. A dental bridge restores the health and appearance of your mouth by filling in spaces with a false tooth supported by either your natural teeth, dental implants, or a combination of both. At Kissable Dental in Dallas, TX, we offer custom-made bridges with top-quality materials to help give you back your beautiful smile. If you have missing teeth, please schedule a consultative appointment with our dental professionals to learn more about your restoration options with a dental bridge.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Bridges?

For long-term dental health, missing teeth can be quite problematic. However, with dental bridges, you can avoid difficulties like tooth shifting, jaw troubles, a change in the contour of your face, difficulty speaking and eating, and problems with your facial structure. Benefits of dental bridges installed at Kissable Dental in Dallas, TX may include:

  • Achieving a beautiful, natural-looking smile
  • Stopping bone loss in the mouth
  • Preventing teeth from shifting
  • Fixing problems with speaking and/or eating
  • Using long-lasting materials
  • A more comfortable option compared to partial dentures

What to Expect with Dental Crown Restorations

After your supporting teeth are prepped and filed down, our dental professional will take digital images and impressions of your teeth so your custom bridge can be created. We use the iTero® digital impression scanner to record nearby teeth, as well as opposing teeth, and how the teeth bite together. If needed, a temporary bridge or restoration may be placed while your custom one is crafted. Once your dental bridge is ready, your mouth will be numbed with local anesthesia. Stronger sedation options may be used if you have any dental anxieties or trouble with a gag reflex so you will be comfortable during the procedure. The bridge will either be cemented into place or attached to dental implants, depending on the method you and our practitioner decided on during your consultation. We will carefully adjust the fit of your bridge so it feels right in your mouth and remains in place.
