Today, there are several dental restoration options available for replacing missing teeth, and a dental bridge is one of the easiest ways to do just that. A dental bridge is a prosthetic tooth that is anchored onto the surrounding teeth. Here at Corner Canyon Family Dental near Sandy, UT, we offer tooth bridges to all of our patients from Draper and beyond. We invite you to keep reading to learn more about bridges for teeth and how they can benefit you.
A dental bridge contains three parts: the artificial tooth and two anchors on each side of it. The artificial tooth is made to match your tooth anatomy, so you won’t even be able to tell that it is fake. The two anchors are also made to blend in with your teeth. Like dental crowns, dental bridges are made out of several different materials. The best way to find out what will work for you is to meet with our doctor.
A dental bridge comes with many benefits. Some of the main reasons many of our Draper, UT dental patients are partial towards bridgework are:
Receiving a dental bridge is a quick process that we can complete with two visits to your Sandy, UT dentist’s office. During your first visit, digital x-rays and impressions of your teeth will be taken to ensure correct sizing when creating the tooth bridge. After that, some filing down of your teeth will take place in order to make room for the bridgework. You will be given a temporary tooth bridge while waiting for your new dental bridge to be made.
On your returning visit to our Draper, UT, office, the bridge will be cemented into your mouth. This may feel abnormal at first, but you will not even recognize the bridge in your mouth over time. Follow-up visits to the dentist to ensure the bridge fits correctly and does not cause you any pain may be necessary.
A dental bridge is one of the least invasive dental procedures we offer, meaning the process is simple, quick, and offers little pain or discomfort. It is essential to care for your new tooth bridge like you would your normal teeth. This will help the bridge last for many years.
Here at Corner Canyon Family Dental, we offer dental bridges as a restoration option for all of our patients who come to us from Draper, Sandy, and the surrounding areas of Utah. We want each patient to feel confident in their smile. If you have any questions about dental bridges, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
