Dental Bridges in Mansfield
Replacement Teeth to Suit Your Needs
Missing teeth can inhibit your ability to eat and speak normally and cause you to hide your smile. In addition, the teeth surrounding the empty space may begin to shift position and move into the space created by the missing tooth or teeth. A bridge fills the space and corrects these problems. At Orchard Family Dental, we offer dental bridges to restore missing teeth for our patients in Mansfield, TX and surrounding areas.
Would I Benefit from a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a device that is designed to provide artificial teeth to replace one or more missing teeth. This is a permanent solution for missing teeth, as your Mansfield dentist will attach the bridge to the adjacent teeth to hold the bridge in place. Many patients find dental bridges to be a better solution than a partial denture, which is removed at night and replaced in the morning. Bridges look and feel more natural.
People choose dental bridges to:
- Replace missing teeth
- Stop the surrounding teeth from moving
- Speak and chew as they did before the teeth were lost
- Retain the natural shape of the face
- Improve the appearance of their smiles
- Enjoy a permanent replacement for missing teeth
Understanding the Treatment Process
Dental bridges are placed in two visits to the dentist. The first visit involves preparing the anchoring teeth on either side of the space where your teeth are missing. At this time, the dentist will select the shade of your replacement teeth to match your natural teeth and take an impression of your mouth. This is used to make a mold for the laboratory to use in creating your bridge. You may be fitted with a temporary bridge to wear until your permanent bridge is ready. This generally takes about three weeks. When you return for the second visit, the bridge will be adjusted, polished, and cemented to the surrounding teeth
At Orchard Family Dental, we want you to be confident in our Mansfield dentistry. We use only quality materials and dental instruments to ensure precision in our custom dental bridges. Our bridges are covered under a five-year warranty. Should you experience a problem within the warranty period, your bridge will be replaced.
