If you are missing one or more teeth, but have an overall healthy mouth, then dental bridges may be the best solution for you. A dental bridge does exactly what the name suggests– it replaces missing teeth by bridging the gap between teeth. A dental bridge is a fixed dental prosthetic, meaning that, unlike dentures, it is permanently placed and cannot be removed without a visit to your dentist. It uses your remaining teeth and gums as anchors for the dental prosthetic. At Smile Bright Dental Studio, our dental bridges can help you replace a lost tooth or teeth to get you smiling easily again.
The goal of Smile Bright Dental Studio when placing dental bridges is to replace the missing tooth or teeth in a way that feels and looks natural. Our highly-qualified and caring team of dentists are experts at replacing lost or missing teeth so that it feels like you never lost them at all.
The first step in getting dental bridges is by visiting our dental office, located in Fulshear, TX. There, we will take an impression of your mouth. This allows us to have a dental bridge that matches up perfectly with your existing teeth so that there is no discomfort or awkwardness in your smile. At the next visit, we will place your dental bridge. While doing this, we remove some of the enamel of the teeth surrounding the gap to make room for the dental bridge. This is one of the reasons why we require that the teeth surrounding your gap be strong and healthy since they are undergoing treatment for the gap. Once this has been done, we place the bridge using temporary glue. The reason for this is so that you have time to wear the dental bridge temporarily. It gives you time to feel out if the procedure is right for you, and if the dental bridge is the right size and shape. At the next visit, we will remove the temporary bridge and place a permanent dental bridge on your teeth, created uniquely to fit your mouth and give it back any functionality that it was missing.
