Dental Bridges in Maribyrnong
Do you have a gap in your smile? If you have teeth that are missing, you may be interested in learning more about tooth replacement solutions. Your options at Hampstead Dental to restore the look and function of your smile include dental bridges. If you give us a call, we’ll schedule you for a consultation with one of our dentists so that he can evaluate you and make his best recommendations.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
A bridge is created from a row of crowns. The crowns on each of the ends will attach to the healthy teeth that are on either side of the gap where a tooth or teeth are missing. The middle pontic, or artificial tooth, is suspended into the open space. Your bridge is colour-matched to the rest of your teeth and created in our local laboratory for a seamless look.
Since a bridge is fixed in place, it is a permanent tooth replacement option. You won’t have to be concerned about taking it out at night, and it will feel stable and secure.
What to Expect When Getting a Dental Bridge
The first step is to have an evaluation of your oral health. Your dentist will examine your mouth and the area where your tooth is missing. If you are a candidate for a bridge, we’ll discuss it with you. When you decide to move forward, the teeth on each side of the gap must be prepared to anchor your bridge. We’ll take impressions that your bridge can be fabricated from. You’ll receive a temporary bridge to wear until your permanent bridge is prepared.
When you return, we’ll cement your permanent bridge into place. With the proper care, your bridge will last for years. Be sure to brush twice a day, floss daily and keep your six-month dental checkups.
