Restore the smile after tooth loss with dental bridges

A dental bridge is one of many missing teeth replacement solutions available for patients to consider in the Santa Clara, California area. Dr. Kavneet Bindra is a dedicated dental professional who may recommend this fixed appliance for patients who want a durable and affordable option for replacing one or more teeth in a row. The dental bridge is a great way to achieve a restored smile.

What is a dental bridge?

Dr. Bindra describes the dental bridge as a fixed restoration that incorporates false teeth (pontics) and crowns. The false teeth are made to slide into place where one or several teeth have been missing while using crowns on each side to anchor the bridge in place. To have a dental bridge placed, patients need adjacent teeth around the missing tooth. If they do not have support for the bridge, they may want to ask their dentist about an implant-supported bridge, which uses one or two dental implants to act as anchors around the missing tooth. Another alternative compared with dental implants is partial dentures commonly used to replace teeth.

Do dental bridges look natural?

Because of the materials used in dentistry today, dental bridges and other porcelain restorations are highly realistic in appearance. A cosmetic dentist takes great pride in ensuring that dental work doesn’t look noticeable to others and blends in with the natural smile. That is important to help patients feel confident even when they’ve had to undergo dental work in the past. Dental bridges are custom-made for each patient to ensure that they are difficult to discern from the natural teeth within the smile once they are placed.

Dental Bridges

Dental Bridges
A bridge is a non-surgical way to replace one or many teeth. A bridge uses the adjacent teeth as anchors to support the missing tooth or teeth. With today’s dental advancements, a bridge can be fabricated in a fairly short period of time, using a metal or nonmetal foundation. Don’t let that missing tooth affect the way you speak, eat, and smile. Bridges yield immediate results that last a lifetime. Ask your dentist what type of bridge may be right for you.
