When only one or a few artificial teeth are needed, a dental bridge can provide a more permanent solution for missing teeth. Dental Bridges can be affixed firmly into place for results that are very realistic. Dental bridges are a solution for those who have one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges generally last in an individual’s mouth for 5 years or longer.
At TLC Dental in Bethel, CT, we have been providing dental bridges to residents throughout this community and surrounding areas with restorative dentistry care including dental bridges.
Dental Bridge Process
Dental bridges are just like any other custom appliance, an impression of your mouth and teeth will need to be taken in order to fabricate replacement teeth of the perfect size and shape. Once the artificial teeth are ready, they will be cemented into place using the two surrounding teeth as anchors.
The artificial teeth may be porcelain, fused to high noble white metal, or they may be zirconia, which is synthetic diamond.
Maintenance of Dental Bridges
Maintaining your dental bridges is extremely important in ensuring proper oral health for the neighboring teeth. These teeth are helping to support the new bridge. In order to guarantee the longevity of your artificial teeth, make sure to brush and floss routinely and maintain regular dental checkups.
