Replace missing teeth with dental bridges
At Dallas Laser Dentistry, Drs. Mary Swift and Morgan Petty can assist patients in learning more about ways to replace missing teeth. In addition to dental implants and dentures, patients can also ask our team of professionals about the benefits of dental bridges.
What are dental bridges?
Dental bridges are commonly used to replace one or even several missing teeth. They are usually made of porcelain or ceramic and are attached to the existing teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth. Dental bridges can be used to restore both the function and the appearance of your smile.
What are the steps to obtaining dental bridges for the smile?
If you are considering dental bridges to replace your missing teeth, consult with a qualified dentist at Dallas Laser Dentistry who can help you determine if this is the best treatment option for you. Factors like the number of teeth you are missing, the health of your remaining teeth, and your budget may all play a role in deciding whether dental bridges are suitable for you.
If you do decide to get dental bridges, the dentist will first take a 3D laser digital scan of your teeth and use these to fabricate a model of your mouth. This model is used to create the dental bridge, which will be custom-made to fit your mouth. Once the dental bridge is complete, you will return for a second appointment so the dentist can place it.
How do I take care of a dental bridge?
It is critical that you take care of your dental bridge just as you would your natural teeth. This includes brushing twice daily, flossing daily, and visiting the dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings. With proper care, your dental bridges can last for many years.
