Replacing a Lost Tooth with a Dental Bridge
Losing a tooth can seem devastating, but Dr. Hamidi and Dr. Gonzalez can help you reclaim your smile, your oral health, and your confidence with a custom-made dental bridge. A bridge replaces a lost tooth (or more than one, if they’re adjacent to each other) with a lifelike prosthetic, also known as a pontic. The bridge also consists of dental crowns on either side, which are bonded to the healthy teeth bordering the gap in your smile. With a custom-made bridge, you can once again enjoy a full, youthful smile, improve your oral health, and restore your bite function.
At Your Appointment
A dental bridge works best when it fits naturally between the rest of your teeth. Our advanced digital imaging equipment helps ensure that your prosthetic teeth closely replicate the natural teeth you’ve lost. The detailed images and precise measurements will be used to hand-craft your bridge from highly lifelike materials, such as porcelain or zirconia. In some cases, Dr. Hamidi and Dr. Gonzalez might recommend an implant-secured bridge. By supporting the prosthetic on two dental implants, you can rebuild your smile without having to prepare nearby healthy teeth to support the bridge.
