A Solution for Missing Teeth
A dental bridge is a fixed restoration that can be used to replace missing teeth. An artificial tooth is attached on each end to a crown which is then bonded to a healthy tooth. If there is not a tooth for the crown, the bridge can be attached to dental implants.
Creating Lifelike Restorations
Your new restoration should last for years – that’s why Dr. Tiner is very precise in the preparation and design of your new bridge. We want to restore not only your oral function and health, but your confidence as well. In fact, restorative dentistry can do this for you.
Each tooth on your bridge is carefully crafted to become a seamlessly natural part of your smile. Our goal is to deliver a restoration that looks and feels as close to the real thing as possible.
Caring for Your Dental Bridges
Great oral hygiene can extend the life of your bridge, crowns, or fillings. With a bridge, a few extra steps are needed to keep the area as clean as possible. In addition to brushing it thoroughly, it is important to use a floss threader or water flosser to clean under the artificial tooth at least once a day.
Scheduling preventive cleanings every six months will help establish the health and integrity of your prosthesis, avoiding complications later on. Our hygienists will also work with you to find various ways to clean your bridge.
If you have a missing tooth, replacing it quickly can prevent your other teeth from moving out of alignment. Dental bridges or implants are often recommended soon after having a tooth pulled. Therefore, you can have the bright, healthy smile you have always wanted. Contact Dentistry By Design at (972) 694-4823 for more information!
