YOUR SOURCE FOR DENTAL BRIDGES IN FAIRMONT, WV

DR. MUSIC IS YOUR PREMIERE CHOICE FOR A FLAWLESS SMILE WITH BRIDGES

Along with dental implants, dental bridges serve as a good choice for replacing missing teeth. Bridges can replace a single missing tooth or even several adjacent teeth. Dr. Smiles uses her expertise and years of experience to provide you the best options for dental bridge work in Fairmont, WV and surrounding areas. Bridges are typically made of porcelain in order to provide maximum strength and reliability. Once in place, bridges offer a remarkable improvement in both the aesthetics and functionality of your smile. You may notice improved ability to talk, chew, and eat normally. Your smile will appear more even and your face will regain its natural contours. Your bite will also become more even, lowering the stress on your teeth that may be making up for the teeth you’ve lost.

CUSTOM-MADE BRIDGES CONNECT YOUR TEETH

Crowns are minimally invasive, natural looking, and custom made. For many, they are the ideal choice for missing teeth. Sometimes they are referred to as “fixed partial dentures” and are semi-permanent. They are bonded to existing teeth or implants. There are multiple types of bridges and methods of installation.

Bridges are, generally speaking, created by placing crowns on the two teeth adjacent to the gap that’s bing filled. Fused between these crowns is a false tooth, which fills the gap. The teeth to which the bridge is anchored are called the abutment teeth. These teeth are first prepared for the bridge during a visit with Dr. Music. After recontouring the teeth to improve their ability to “anchor” your bridge, you will be given a temporary bridge. Once your custom bridge is created, the doctor will remove your temporary bridge and install your permanent one. Generally, the process is not painful and provides a semi-permanent solution for you. Sometimes multiple appointments will need to be made after the installation of the bridge. This helps to ensure that the bridge is fitting and functioning properly.

Dr. Music will discuss your options for therapy with you. Together, you can determine if bridges are the appropriate choice in your particular situation. Call the office today to schedule your appointment.
