Dental Bridges in Brampton
If you’re missing one or more teeth or scheduled for tooth extraction, our dental professionals may recommend a dental bridge as a method to restore your teeth. Dental bridges are an attractive, permanent solution to replacing one or more teeth in a row. Bridges offer a stable, natural-looking replacement for the natural teeth so you can feel confident in your smile and enjoy a fully restored bite.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge spans the gap in your teeth by anchoring the healthy teeth at each end, much like a bridge for cars spans a gap from two anchor points. A traditional bridge is made up of three parts; the pontic (artificial tooth) is in the center, and two dental crowns form the end pieces. The crowns fit over the healthy teeth on either side of the gap, acting as anchors. The bridge is custom-made for your teeth, providing a perfect fit and maximum comfort. Once the custom-fitted bridge is positioned correctly in your mouth, it is fixed into place for long-lasting wear. Bridges can also be affixed to dental implants or to the natural teeth, depending on your oral health.
What to Expect?
Once you’ve decided to have a dental bridge installed, the process requires several appointments over a few weeks. First, impressions of your mouth need to be sent off to a dental lab, where they will create your customized dental bridge. While the lab is making your bridge, you may also need to have one or more dental implants installed to support the bridge, which takes time to heal. Once the bridge is ready, our dental professionals will ensure the fit is perfect before securing it in place. When the process is finished, you’ll be able to chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
