Have you experienced tooth loss and are looking for a solution? Our skilled dentist and team offer dental bridges here at Carolina Avenue Dental Care as an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth, ensuring both aesthetic appeal and improved oral function.

Understanding Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a custom-made replacement for one or more missing teeth that literally “bridges” the gap. Typically made from porcelain or ceramics, bridges are anchored onto existing teeth or implants on either side of the missing tooth. They not only restore the appearance of your smile but also maintain the shape of your face and alleviate stress on your bite.

Your Dental Bridges Experience

The process of getting a dental bridge involves several steps. Initially, the adjacent teeth are prepared, and impressions are taken to create a precise bridge. While your custom bridge is being made, you will wear a temporary bridge. Once ready, the permanent bridge is fitted, adjusted and cemented into place, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

  • Restores Smile and Functionality: Fills the gap left by missing teeth, improving your smile and ability to chew and speak.
  • Maintains Facial Structure: Prevents the sagging of facial muscles that can occur with tooth loss.
  • Evenly Distributes Bite Forces: Helps in redistributing the forces in your bite properly.
  • Prevents Remaining Teeth from Shifting: Keeps your remaining teeth in the correct position.
  • Long-Lasting Solution: With proper care, dental bridges can last many years.
