Tooth Replacement in Arnold: Fixed Bridges
Fixed bridges offer a non-surgical replacement option for patients who are missing one or several teeth. A more conservative choice than dental implants, for example, fixed bridges work by creating a literal bridge over the gap left by missing teeth.
How Fixed Bridges Work
When you decide a beautiful fixed bridge is the tooth replacement option that you and your smile need, Dr. Mears will apply a metal-free, porcelain crown onto the two teeth that surround the gap left by the missing teeth. These act as anchors for the prosthetic replacement tooth (or teeth). Permanent and attractive, fixed bridges are a wonderful option for anyone who wants something more stable than dentures but less invasive than dental implants.
Further benefits of fixed bridges include the following.
- They restore your ability to eat, speak and smile just like you always have
- Fixed bridges restore the volume of your face for a more youthful appearance
- Enjoy renewed self-confidence with a complete smile
Fixed Bridge Procedure
You can expect the procedure for your fixed bridge to take place over the span of two visits to Dr. Mears’ office. In the first, your surrounding teeth will be prepared for the porcelain crowns and impressions of your teeth will be made for the creation of your fixed bridge. You’ll leave this visit with a temporary bridge for use until your permanent device is ready.
In the second visit to JL Dental, your fixed bridge has been created and it’s time for placement. Dr. Mears will check its final fit and bite, and when we’re completely sure everything is 100 percent right with the fixed bridge, it will be permanently cemented into place — and you walk out of our Arnold dental practice with your beautiful, complete smile.
