Bridges In Brandon, FL

If you want to fix issues with missing teeth, or gaps in your smile, you should consider having dental bridges done. Perfect Dental offers dental bridges in Brandon, FL and provides an easy solution for patients to fix any issues with their smiles.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a dental restoration whereby a gap is filled in with a ‘false’ tooth. This ‘false’ tooth (widely known as a pontic tooth) is made of porcelain or metal and is regularly used in dental bridges by acting as the replacement for the missing tooth. More than one ‘false’ tooth may be used if multiple teeth are missing, and it is typically attached to the natural teeth on each side of the gap.

Why should you get a dental bridge?

Dental bridges are commonly used to improve a patient’s smile by bridging any gaps between teeth. This is not only done for aesthetics reasons, but it provides some much-needed functionality as dental bridges will help keep the natural teeth from shifting. Missing teeth may also affect your bite, hindering your ability to chew your food properly. In some cases, missing teeth may also affect your speech and cause lisps when you talk. Having a dental bridge done will help resolve these issues.

How do dental bridge procedures work?

Your dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth to ensure there are no underlying issues and that you are a suitable candidate for dental bridges. An impression of your teeth will be made, which will then be used to produce your pontic tooth (production usually takes about 2 to 3 weeks). Temporary bridges will be fitted in their place until the permanent bridge is ready. This will help ensure any exposed teeth or gums are protected. Once your dental bridge is ready, the temporary bridge will be removed, and the permanent bridge will be fitted.
