Dental Bridges

Dentist in Aurora

A dental bridge is a common solution for tooth loss. A bridge is made by placing 2 crowns on anchoring teeth and connecting them with false teeth, or “pontics”.

Crowns and bridges are restorative dental procedures and can be made of various strong materials, such as: porcelain, metal and ceramics.

Bridges can:

  • Restore your smile
  • Provide you with the ability to properly chew and speak
  • Maintain the intended shape of your face
  • Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position

When receiving a bridge, you will first have your anchor or “abutment” teeth prepared. Tooth preparation may involve removing part of these teeth in order to securely attach the dental crowns, which will hold the false tooth or teeth in place. Next, your doctor will take an impression of your teeth, which is necessary for the lab to create your bridge. Your dentist will provide a temporary bridge to wear until the final bridge is placed.

The number of visits and the exact process may vary based on your doctor’s recommendation.
