Close the Gap & Beautify Your Smile
Our experienced cosmetic dentists may recommend a bridge if your tooth can’t be salvaged with a filling or crown, yet you still want a fully functioning tooth. A bridge also prevents your remaining teeth from moving out of position, which can cause other unwanted dental problems. In addition, a dental bridge will enhance your ability to speak and chew normally. If you have a missing tooth, our cosmetic dentist can replace the gap with dental bridges in Hudson, MA.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
Sometimes called a “fixed partial denture,” a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth used to be. Bridges are made from gold, alloys, porcelain – or a combination of materials – to match your natural teeth. A fixed bridge is attached to surrounding teeth for support. Unlike a removable bridge, a fixed bridge must be removed by a dentist.
A Dental Bridge Is a Great Option for Many Patients
Getting a bridge usually requires two appointments. We craft a mold of your teeth and prepare the surrounding anchor teeth for permanent crowns. A dental laboratory takes about two weeks to create your bridge, followed by a visit for your final fit. Once the process is complete, your bridge will look and act just like your natural teeth – no one will be able to tell you are wearing one!
After your bridge is installed, we encourage patients to care for bridges just as they would for regular teeth. A good brushing and flossing routine is usually the only maintenance necessary. In addition, feel free to give our office a call if you have any discomfort once your bridge is in place.
