Dental bridges are a new solution to permanently fix the gap created by one or many missing teeth. A dental bridge is literally a bridge created by two or more dental crowns on either side of the missing teeth that anchor artificial missing teeth in place.
Dental bridge treatments require no more than two visits to our Belvidere, IL office, but we may ask you to return regularly for follow-up visits to continue monitoring the fit of your dental bridge during your dental checkup.
The first visit consists of analyzing your current oral health and preparing the adjacent (abutment) teeth to hold the dental crowns that will support the prosthetic tooth or teeth. Then, Dr. Brechon will take an impression of your teeth that will be used to create a customized bridge for you in a dental laboratory. Dr. Brechon may supply you with a temporary bridge to wear when you go home to protect the teeth and gums while your bridge is being created.
During the second visit to our Belvidere office, Dr. Brechon will replace the temporary bridge with your brand new, custom-made bridge. It will be checked and adjusted for the right fit for comfortable use.
Unlike dentures, bridges are a fixed substitute for missing teeth that have many benefits, such as:
The best part of custom dental bridges is that onlookers won’t be able to tell you ever had missing teeth, thanks to how similar the bridges look to your natural teeth.
