A dental bridge is one of the best ways to replace missing teeth. It is non removable and highly durable.
At Lookswoow, we use several types of dental bridges. Our dentist will discuss the best options for your case. However, the traditional bridge is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal and they resemble your natural teeth.
Dental bridges can:
• Fill space of missing teeth.
• Maintain facial shape.
• Restore chewing and speaking ability.
• Prevent the remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
At Lookswoow, you require only two visits and in some cases more than two. In the first visit, we prepare two anchoring teeth by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown while the teeth are numb. Then, we’ll send a highly accurate mold to our laboratory where the bridge is fabricated. Until your next appointment, a temporary bridge is made.
During the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge is very carefully examined to achieve a proper fit. Initially, our dentist may only cement the bridge which allows your teeth and tissue to get used to the new bridge. The new bridge will be permanently cemented at a later time.
We will give you proper care instructions as it is vital to maintain your new permanent bridge.
