At Benton Family Dentistry, in Hot Springs Arkansas, we can help anyone achieve a more beautiful smile, even if they’ve suffered a devastating tooth loss. When a patient who is missing teeth comes into our office, we can offer them multiple restorative options, including a dental bridge.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a dental apparatus that uses a series of beautifully crafted porcelain crowns to fill in a space left by a missing tooth. Dental bridges are called dental bridges because they literally “bridge” the gap between your teeth. We can use dental bridges to restore one tooth, or multiple teeth in a row. Dental bridges are a fantastic restorative option for patients who want to restore the look and functionality of their full smile.
The Benefits of Dental Bridges
Comfort – The crowns that are expertly crafted for dental bridges are comfortable and feel like natural teeth.
Functionality – With a dental bridge in place, you’ll be able to chew normally, and laugh, smile, and talk without worrying about the gap.
Beauty – Our porcelain crowns look and feel just like natural teeth. Using a dental bridge, we can restore and enhance the beauty of your natural smile. With a dental bridge, you can feel confident, attractive, and proud of your smile.
Convenience – After a dental bridge has been crafted, and your teeth have been prepared, dental bridges are easy and efficient to place.
Affordability – Our high quality dental bridges are often an affordable option for patients who have lost teeth.
How a Dental Bridge is Placed?
- To place a dental bridge, your dentist will begin by prepping the teeth adjacent to the gap.
- Once the teeth are prepared, your dentist will place expertly crafted crowns over the adjacent teeth to serve as posts.
- A crown, or crowns, will be cemented to the crowns on the adjacent teeth to fill in the gap and provide you with a full, beautiful smile.
