If you have missing teeth, dental bridges offer an effective solution to restore your smile and improve your oral health. Our skilled dental professionals specialize in creating customized bridges that seamlessly blend with your natural teeth, enhancing both function and aesthetics.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of artificial teeth, known as pontics, which are securely anchored to adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. Dental bridges are crafted to match the color, size, and shape of your existing teeth, ensuring a natural-looking and harmonious smile.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

  1. Restored Functionality: Dental bridges restore your ability to chew, bite, and speak properly. By filling the gap caused by missing teeth, dental bridges help to distribute the forces exerted during eating, preventing further strain on surrounding teeth.
  2. Improved Appearance: Missing teeth can impact your smile’s aesthetics, affecting your self-confidence. Dental bridges are designed to seamlessly blend with your natural teeth, enhancing your overall appearance and giving you a complete smile.
  1. Preventing Teeth Shifting: When a tooth is lost, neighboring teeth can gradually shift into the empty space, leading to misalignment and bite issues. Dental bridges help maintain the proper alignment of your teeth by filling the gap and preventing unwanted shifting.
  1. Preservation of Facial Structure: Missing teeth can cause facial sagging and a prematurely aged appearance. Dental bridges provide support to the lips and cheeks, helping to maintain your facial structure and a youthful look.
  1. Durability and Longevity: Dental bridges are constructed using high-quality materials, such as porcelain or ceramic fused to metal, which provide strength and durability. With proper care and regular dental check-ups, dental bridges can last for many years, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of a complete smile.
  1. Non-Removable Solution: Unlike removable dental prostheses, such as dentures, dental bridges are fixed in place, offering convenience and stability. This means you can speak, eat, and interact with confidence without worrying about your restoration slipping or shifting.

Procedure and Maintenance

The dental bridge procedure typically involves multiple visits to our office. During the initial consultation, our dental professionals will assess your oral health, discuss your treatment options, and create a personalized plan. The adjacent teeth or dental implants will be prepared to accommodate the bridge, and detailed impressions will be taken to craft a custom-fit restoration. Temporary bridges may be placed while your permanent bridge is being fabricated. Once the final bridge is ready, it will be carefully bonded into place, ensuring a comfortable and natural fit.

To maintain the longevity of your dental bridge, practicing good oral hygiene is essential. This includes regular brushing, flossing, and attending routine dental check-ups. Our dental team will provide you with specific care instructions to keep your bridge clean and in optimal condition.

If you have missing teeth, dental bridges at Vancouver Main Dentistry offer a reliable and aesthetically pleasing solution.
