Your Salt Lake City Dentists provide Dental Bridges
Dental Bridges have long been used to discreetly replace missing teeth without sacrificing dental performance or aesthetics. Your Salt Lake City Dentists may recommend a dental bridge for a number of reasons, including to prevent remaining teeth from drifting into the space vacated by missing teeth. Dental Bridges are also effective for chewing, speaking, and cosmetic purposes.
What is a Dental Bridge?
Traditional Dental Bridges are non-removable appliances that take on the appearance and function of natural teeth. They are composed of artificial teeth that are personalized to fit the size, shape, and color of a patient’s natural smile. These artificial teeth are attached to a Dental Bridge that is separated by two dental crowns. The dental crowns are made to fit over anchor teeth at either side of the space the missing teeth once occupied. Once the dental crowns are cemented in place, the Dental Bridge can remain in place for many years to come.
Getting a Dental Bridge usually requires multiple dental visits. The first is a preparatory visit during which the abutment teeth are prepared for dental crowns. An impression is taken of the abutment teeth and the space where the Dental Bridge will be placed. Some patients wear a temporary Dental Bridge home from the initial visit until the permanent one is ready for placement. At the final visit, the new Dental Bridge is cemented in place, and instructions are provided for care and maintenance of the appliance.
