If you currently have a gap in your smile because of one or more missing teeth, our Personal Dental Care team has the perfect solution for you. A dental bridge in Richmond, Virginia, is a beneficial restoration that can do wonders for your smile! It’s a strong and successful product that is made of two or more dental crowns and beautiful artificial teeth. To help you know a little more about this helpful restoration, our team has provided the answers to the following questions:
What are the benefits of a dental bridge?
A dental bridge can be beneficial in many ways. It can restore your smile, give you the ability to chew and speak, and maintain the shape of your face. A bridge can also give you the force you need in your bite and prevent remaining natural teeth from drifting out of position.
What is the process of placing a dental bridge?
Improving your smile with a bridge is an easy process that requires two trips to our office. First, your dentist will prepare the natural teeth that will anchor the bridge in place. Your dentist will simply trim the enamel to make room for the dental crowns. Then, he will make impressions of those teeth and will send the impressions to a dental lab so the technicians can create the bridge. While you wait, you will wear a temporary bridge. During your second visit, your dentist will check the new bridge and make any necessary adjustments. Once the bridge is perfect for your smile, your dentist will cement it into place.
