Bridges Q & A

What is a bridge?

A dental bridge uses a mixture of artificial teeth, crowns, and a prosthetic apparatus to replace missing teeth. Dental bridges were developed as an alternative to partial dentures.

Why would I need a bridge?

Bridges serve as an optimal solution to missing or broken teeth.

Teeth that are missing or damaged can have a real impact on your quality of life. You might not be able to chew your favorite foods, or you’re embarrassed to smile because of missing teeth, or your voice sounds different.

Whether it’s decay, an accident, or some other misfortune that caused your missing or damaged teeth, Dr. Felipe Galvan can restore your smile through a custom dental bridge comfortably fitted to your mouth.

What is the process for getting a dental bridge?

Dr. Galvan’s process for placing a bridge connects an artificial tooth on either side of the missing tooth (or teeth) to crowns that are placed on the neighboring teeth to hold the bridge in place securely.

This is an extremely durable method for holding the tooth in place and ultimately, replace a missing tooth. The dental bridge can be made of gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal.

To begin the process, Dr. Galvan numbs the mouth, removes any decay, and shapes the teeth that will be crowned. He then creates a unique mold of your mouth so that the crowns are precisely fitted to be the most attractive and comfortable. From this mold, Dr. Galvan creates the bridge and artificial teeth to then place them permanently in your mouth.

One of the best ways to address a gap in your smile or a missing tooth is to have a dental bridge custom made for you. Dental bridges are not for everyone, and after a thorough evaluation with Dr. Galvan, he can lead you to the best solution to restore your smile.

Is it time for you to eat your favorite foods, smile confidently, and sound like yourself again? As an advanced form of restorative dentistry, a bridge should be installed by an expert dentist like Dr. Felipe Galvan, so call Galvan Dental Care or request an appointment online today.
