Even one lost tooth can cause problems. Uneven tooth wear, losing more teeth, and embarrassment about your appearance are real issues you may face if you don’t replace lost teeth. Fortunately, the Wager Evans Dental team can revive your smile and improve dental health with bridgework. Don’t feel like you have to live with tooth loss when Dr. Evans and Dr. Wager can return your smile to full function and health.
How Does a Dental Bridge Work?
Anchored to neighboring teeth, a dental bridge is a custom appliance that will replace one or more missing teeth in a row. An artificial tooth will be created with crowns attached to each side. To secure the bridge, teeth on either side of the gap in your smile are crowned. Once your dentist cements the bridge in place, it will remain secure and immovable. The crown will be designed based on impressions taken of your teeth. This ensures an accurate and comfortable fit. The prosthetic will be created using lifelike dental materials. Our dental bridges are created to blend seamlessly with your smile, helping you avoid the misalignment and damaged teeth that often accompany missing teeth.
Receiving a Dental Bridge
Generally, placement of a bridge requires two appointments. As the first step, your dentist will take impressions and prepare the abutment teeth. The preparation involves the removal of a small amount of tooth structure. Final placement will occur at the next visit. With a dental bridge, you can smile with grace, eat crunchy foods, and feel confident smiling in public. If you have any questions about placing a dental bridge, or any of our other dental prosthetics, then contact your Wager Evans dental team.
Do I Qualify for a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is one of the more common methods of replacing a lost tooth, a system that has been in use for decades. If you’re looking for a solution to address tooth loss, Dr. Evans and Dr. Wager will examine your smile and assess your overall dental health. From there, they can recommend the most appropriate procedure for restoring your smile to optimal appearance and function. In addition to dental bridges, we also offer tooth replacement with dentures, partial dentures, and dental implants.
