Bridges

A bridge is a permanent dental unit made up of two crowns with a pontic (fake tooth) connected to each crown. This is an aesthetically pleasing way to give the illusion of having a perfect set of teeth when one is missing. A bridge also restores normal occlusion to a mouth, meaning all teeth have a buddy to bite against. This is very important because if a tooth is missing its buddy tooth it may begin to recede from the gums and become much longer than the rest of the teeth, possibly falling out.

It takes two or more appointments to restore a missing tooth with a bridge. During the first appointment, impressions are taken of your teeth, which are used to make precise working models of your mouth. Dr. Myers or Dr. Davidson then prepares the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth and places temporary restorations until the permanent bridge returns from Exceldent Lab in Mesquite, TX.

During the second appointment, the dentist removes the temporary restorations to clean and polish the prepared teeth. The permanent bridge is tried on in the mouth and adjusted for a perfect fit. When the dentist and the patient are both satisfied with the look and fit of the bridge, it will be bonded into place using a strong adhesive agent. Our patient's chewing ability is now fully restored and visual aesthetics with no missing tooth is greatly improved.
