Dental Bridges

Missing teeth can negatively impact your ability to eat, speak, and maintain quality oral health. Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth. A dental bridge can be made using porcelain, gold, or a combination of these materials, and must be custom-made to fit your natural smile and bite. Fitting a dental bridge usually takes two appointments to complete.

During your first appointment, a member of our team will prepare the teeth on either side of the existing space before taking an impression that will be sent off to the lab. Between appointments, Dr. Zavari will provide a temporary bridge designed to protect your smile until your permanent bridge arrives from the lab. Once your custom-made bridge is ready, Dr. Zavari will place the bridge into position and provide tips on how to maintain your new oral appliance.

Practicing quality oral hygiene habits such as brushing and flossing will keep the bridge and surrounding teeth functional and in good health. It's very important that the teeth bracketing your bridge stay healthy, as the bridge relies on the neighboring teeth for support.
