Dental Bridges

If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may notice a difference in chewing and speaking.

A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. In a dental bridge procedure , the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth or teeth, are shaped and fitted with crowns- these crowns are connected to tooth replacements which will be placed in the empty spaces. During the time it takes to fabricate the dental bridge, the patient will be fit with a temporary bridge to protect the gums and the prepared teeth. The dental bridge will be cement it into place.

Depending on which type of bridge Dr.Cirstea or Dr.Pistol recommends, its success depends on its foundation. So it’s very important to keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong. Whether supported by natural teeth or dental implants, dental bridges can offer life-like aesthetics and stable chewing surfaces.
