When you lose a tooth, it negatively affects your appearance, speech, tooth alignment, and ability to chew. If you need to replace a tooth, or several teeth in a row, our dentists may recommend a dental bridge. Bridges are a reliable solution for missing teeth, and will improve both your smile and your quality of life. To learn more about dental bridges in Humble, Texas, and schedule your consultation with Drs. Umansky, Zafer, Farmer, and Nikmard, please call Aesthetic Dentistry Associates today at 281-446-4700.
How do Dental Bridges Work?
Dental bridges, also known as fixed partial dentures, are made up of one or more artificial teeth attached to the teeth on either side of the gap in your smile. These adjoining teeth are often referred to as abutment teeth. Dental bridges are bonded to the abutment teeth to create a stable and long-lasting restoration.
When you receive a dental bridge, our dentists will:
• Take an impression of your bite to help create prosthetic teeth.
• Design your prosthetic teeth
• Prepare your abutment teeth to receive crowns and anchor your bridge in place
• Place crowns on the abutment teeth
• Bond your artificial teeth to the crowned abutment teeth
We will provide you with instructions on how to care for your dental bridge so that it will last for many years.
