Fill the Gap in Your Smile with Dental Bridges
Serving Durham, Raleigh, and Morrisville, NC
A dental bridge is a fixed prosthetic device usually made up of porcelain or ceramic that is primarily used on patients with a missing tooth. Dental bridges are definitely what you need if you are missing out one or more than one tooth despite having a healthy gum!
A dental bridge makes use of the patients' gum and the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth as support. At our dental office, we use it is as a replacement to a missing tooth. The most exciting thing about the dental bridge is, the procedure is extremely simple and do not cause much pain or worry.
In a dental bridge procedure, our lead dentist Dr. Doan Tran first inserts an artificial tooth and then bonds it to the remaining natural teeth. At Brier Creek Smiles Dentistry, we always provide durable and sturdy dental bridges that act as a perfect replacement to a missing tooth.
What Are The Types Dental Bridges?
At Brier Creek Smiles Dentistry, we use the following dental bridges depending on the dental condition of the patients -
Traditional Fixed Bridge
This is the most common type of bridge that we use at our dental office. In this kind of bridge, bridges made up of porcelain are placed over the two surrounding teeth, which behave just like anchors and hold the artificial tooth in place.
We use a cantilever bridge when teeth are present only on one side of the gap. In other words, we use these types of bridges in those areas of the mouth that do most of the biting and chewing.
In a resin-bonded bridge, metal bonds are fixed to the surrounding teeth by means of resin and helps hold the false tooth in place. We generally use these types of bridges in those regions of the mouth that do not go through an extensive biting load.
What Is Done Before The Dental Bridge Procedure?
At Brier Creek Smiles Dentistry, if we notice that you require dental bridge for cosmetic purposes, then we would first go for the teeth whitening procedure. We can assure you that our teeth whitening procedure in combination with the dental bridge will improve the beauty and appeal of your smile to a considerable extent.
The best thing about dental bridges is that they are resistant to staining. That’s why we always recommend the teeth whitening procedure before placing the dental bridge. But if you don’t go for the teeth whitening procedure, the yellow stains and dark patches on the surface of your teeth will remain even if you go for extensive teeth whitening procedure at the later stages. However, if we see that you need dental bridges as a replacement for your missing tooth, then our experienced dentist will immediately place a top-quality dental bridge in the missing region.
What Does Dental Bridge Procedure Involve?
If you are thinking of treating your missing tooth, then waste no time in getting a top-quality dental bridge. This is when we can help you! The dental bridge that we use for treating our patients looks same as that of a natural tooth. We can assure you that our team is expert at placing the same in place of a missing tooth.
Our highly-trained team makes sure that your teeth look natural and beautiful without staining your finances and putting you in discomfort. Before the procedure, we take the impression of your teeth and create a superior dental ridge in our state-of-the-art dental lab.
How We Do It?
In a dental bridge surgery, we remove a certain portion of the enamel so that that we don’t face any problem in fixing the bridge. Additionally, we make sure that the tooth doesn’t dislocate other teeth from their position. After that, we clean the tooth and place a temporary bridge by means of glue.
At our dental office, we will ask you to wear this temporary bridge for around two weeks. We will provide you with a permanent one as the permanent one gets delivered from the dental lab. In the meantime, you must make sure to take care of your diet and the way you brush and floss your teeth. Since improper techniques can considerably damage it.
After the completion of the dental restorative procedures, you will have to return to our office for replacing the temporary bridges with the permanent ones. In most cases, we place a crown on the teeth that are encompassing the missing one.
On the top of the crown, there is a substance that exactly looks like a natural gum and holds the teeth in place. At Brier Creek Smiles Dentistry, we love using the crowns since it plays the role of an anchor to the synthetic bridge. Moreover, it strengthens the natural tooth and enhances its look and appearance. In this way, our dental bridge procedure will not only restore your look but the functionality of the tooth as well.
What To Expect After The Dental Bridge Procedure?
While placing a dental bridge, we make sure to use sedation dentistry so that you do not experience any pain or discomfort. But, there are high chances for you to suffer from teeth sensitivity. Stop worrying as you just need to take some medicines for a couple of days to overcome oral pain and sensitivity.
The benefit of wearing a crown above the dental bridge is that it will surround and protect the tooth and you will have no problem in eating or speaking.
Why Are The Perks Of Using Dental Bridge?
At Gentle Touch Dentistry, we use dental bridges for the following reasons –
- It improves the strength of the teeth to eat, speak, and chew.
- Reduces the stress at the time of chewing.
- Prevents the face from drooping.
- Improves the façade of the face.
