Restore Your Smile and Oral Functionality with Dental Bridges
There is power in a great smile. It evokes confidence, happiness, and fun. Unfortunately, most people are born or have acquired teeth imperfections along the way, leading to a less-than-perfect smile. For instance, if you have a gap in your smile, it may lead to a drop in your confidence. You may find yourself smiling less or having conversations without making eye contact.
Luckily, you can change your smile for the better with dental bridges from Chacon Dental Studio serving the community in Dublin, California. And that’s not the only benefit. Dental bridges restore your oral functionality and maintain your oral structures’ integrity.
What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge is a dental appliance that attaches false teeth (pontics) to nearby natural teeth, usually called abutment teeth. A bridge can be used to replace one, two, or several missing teeth as long as they are on the same row. Plus, porcelain dental bridges are colored to match your natural teeth, blending seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Dental bridges are permanently fixed. Fixed bridges are placed by installing crowns on the abutment teeth or by cementing the artificial teeth directly on the natural teeth. On the other hand, If you don’t have healthy abutment teeth, implants can be used to support your bridges.
Dental bridge procedure
Getting a dental bridge involves a minimum of two visits. In the first appointment, the dentist examines your oral health to ensure it’s free of cavities and gum disease. If you get a clean bill of health, the dentist prepares the abutment teeth, takes bite impressions, and sends images to a dental lab to fashion your bridge. You will wear a temporary bridge to protect your prepped teeth as you wait for your permanent bridge.
Your new bridge will be ready in a few weeks, and you will need another dental appointment for installation. After making necessary adjustments to the bridge, we will use dental cement to permanently bond the bridge on your teeth.

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.
