Bridges are dental restorations that allow you to replace missing teeth. Teeth next to the missing tooth support them, with a false crown suspended between them. Each of our bridges are made of tooth-colored porcelain. This allows the bridge to be functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. We choose a porcelain shade that closely resembles the color of the teeth throughout the rest of your mouth. Then you can enjoy a brand-new tooth that looks as natural as the one you had before.
Creating a porcelain bridge is a very detailed cosmetic dental procedure. Dr. Seese implements artistic techniques that create natural looking restorations, which will function for the long term while also returning your self-confidence.
Porcelain Fixed Bridges
Bridge treatment will typically require two separate appointments. The first appointment is used to prep the teeth that will support the bridge. Dr. Seese will remove any damages tooth surfaces and shape the two teeth appropriately. Then, we will take an impression of the teeth, which is sent off to our cosmetic dental lab. Within two weeks, you will return to our office to have your dental bridge bonded permanently into place. This second visit is very simple and does not require much time at all. The main goal is to ensure that it fits properly and bites in proper alignment with your other teeth.
With proper care, your cosmetic dental bridge can last for several years. We suggest scheduling a preventive cleaning appointment every six months to help you keep the support teeth as healthy as possible. Our hygienists will show you how to keep the bridge clean and free of tooth decay.
