Are you missing a tooth – or multiple teeth, perhaps? Then you’ll likely want to return to the strong and stunning smile you deserve. One fantastic option to consider is a dental bridge.
And what is that exactly? A dental bridge consists of an attractive replacement tooth that is fused to a dental crown on each side. It anchors on the adjacent teeth in your mouth and fills the gap without the necessitating any kind of surgery. And it only takes two appointments to place it.
A dental bridge has several benefits. It can renovate your smile, help you chew and speak as well as you did before, conserve the shape of your face, add power to your bite, prevent your natural teeth from drifting out of place, and boost the beauty of your smile as well as your oral health.
As for the process of placing a dental bridge, it is both straightforward and effective. Dr. Pedar Didriksen will first numb your mouth so you don’t have to endure any discomfort during the treatment. Then, he will prepare those teeth next to the gap for the bridge. This means carefully removing a fraction of the tooth enamel. Then Dr. Pedar Didriksen will make an impression of your teeth and will send it to a dental lab. While the bridge is made, you’ll be given a temporary dental appliance to protect your teeth.
When your permanent dental bridge is ready, you will return to Pedar B. Didriksen DDS Family and Cosmetic Dentistry so that we can install it in your mouth. Our dental team will cement the bridge over your teeth so that it fits perfectly in your smile.
