Replace Your Missing Teeth with Solid and Natural-Looking Dental Bridges

Missing or failing teeth often impact your oral function and confidence. When you also miss some teeth, the remaining teeth can loosen, causing further tooth loss. Dental bridges in Airdrie, Alberta, are an effective tooth loss solution that fills unsightly gaps to restore your smile to a healthy state. 

Creekside Dental Care offers porcelain bridges to ensure you don’t suffer the negative consequences of tooth loss. Whether you have lost one or multiple teeth, schedule an appointment with Dr. Andres Marquez Guzman for natural-looking bridges.

How a dental bridge replaces missing teeth

A dental bridge spans a gap left by missing teeth. A traditional bridge comprises one or more prosthetic teeth that fill the gap left after tooth loss. A dental bridge isn’t a stand-alone tooth replacement. Traditional bridges are secured by the neighboring teeth (abutments), further reinforced with dental crowns. 

When you want added stability, you can consider implant-supported bridges. These bridges are supported by an implant anchored in the jawbone. Many patients prefer implant bridges because they’re incredibly solid and don’t alter the structure of otherwise healthy teeth. 

Unlike removable dentures, dental bridges are permanently attached to the mouth. A fixed bridge restores oral function and prevents the other teeth from shifting. Ultimately, dental bridges maintain oral health, stabilize your bite, and renew your confidence and oral function. 

The dental bridge procedure

Traditional bridges need at least two to three dental appointments. The procedure starts with a consultation to determine your eligibility for bridgework. If yes, your dental bridge treatment will involve the steps below.

  • Anesthetizing your mouth to minimize discomfort during tooth preparation
  • Preparing the abutment teeth by removing some enamel around the tooth
  • Taking digital scans of the prepped teeth
  • Sending the digital records to a dental lab to fabricate your bespoke restoration
  • Attaching a temporary restoration until you receive the permanent one
  • Once your bridge is ready, you’ll book another appointment for placement

Attaining an optimal fit and alignment for your bridge may involve several dental appointments. However, once your bridges settle in place, they look and function like natural teeth. Moreover, our bridges are created from life-looking porcelain for the most natural and attractive results.

A bridge is a non-surgical way to replace one or many teeth. A bridge uses the adjacent teeth as anchors to support the missing tooth or teeth. With today’s dental advancements, a bridge can be fabricated in a fairly short period of time, using a metal or nonmetal foundation. Don’t let that missing tooth affect the way you speak, eat, and smile. Bridges yield immediate results that last a lifetime. Ask your dentist what type of bridge may be right for you.
