DO YOU HAVE ONE OR MORE MISSING TEETH?
Then you may need to get dental bridges. Dental bridges are used to cover the gap that is created due to one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge consists of two or more crowns for the teeth on both sides of the gap and a false tooth or teeth in between. The false teeth in dental bridges are made of either gold, porcelain, alloys or a mix of these materials. Bridges need real teeth or dental implants for support.

Make an appointment at Smile Focus today! We pride ourselves in our excellent patient care and outstanding staff who prioritize your health. Missing teeth can cause a myriad of problems and can even cause your other teeth to become crooked. Getting a dental bridge will enable you to chew and speak properly, will prevent your other teeth from moving out of place and maintain the shape of your jaw and face while restoring your beautiful smile. Depending on your oral health and the number of teeth you are missing, your dentist may recommend traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, Maryland bonded bridges or implant supported bridges.
DECIDING TO GET A DENTAL BRIDGE
During your first visit your dentist will remove the enamel of the teeth surrounding the gap to make room for crowns on these teeth. An impression of your teeth will be taken so crowns, the bridge and false teeth can be made in a lab. Your dentist will fit a temporary bridge to protect your teeth during visits. In the next visit, your dental bridge will be fitted and the dentist will check the fit and your bite. The fitting may take more than one visit and the dentist may cement it in place if it is a permanent bridge.
