Are you missing a row of permanent teeth? Do you want to fill the gaps in your smile? Try a dental bridge. A bridge can create a fuller and healthier smile. At Enhanced Dental Care, our dentists provide dental bridge treatment to patients in Rehoboth, DE. This restorative dental treatment renews the smile’s form and function. Dental bridges create fuller smiles with prosthetics that look and feel just like natural teeth. They also stabilize the remaining healthy teeth in the smile.
The Benefits of Dental Bridges
With dental bridges, patients can receive a new, functional smile. Additionally, dental bridges:
- Fill in gaps in the smile
- Prevent facial sagging
- Improve the function of the bite
- Prevent tooth shifting and overcrowding
If you have missing teeth and want a fuller, healthier smile, contact our office. Our dental team works with patients to determine if they are good candidates for bridges, dentures, or even single implants. They utilize diagnostic technology to find the best treatments to restore the smile.
Dental Bridge Treatment in Rehoboth, DE
Traditional dental bridges use the support of natural teeth. For traditional bridges, we place dental crowns on the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth gap. We prepare these teeth by removing a small portion of the tooth enamel. Then, using impressions of the smile, we create the bridge and crown. Once they are complete, we secure the permanent bridge in place with the crown-capped teeth. Traditional bridges are a great way to restore gaps between teeth. However, traditional bridges do not replace teeth at the root.
Implant-secured dental bridges use dental implants to stabilize prosthetic teeth. To begin treatment with implants, we take digital impressions and make sure that patients have enough bone tissue to support implants. Then, we strategically place the implants. After the implants are fully healed, we attach the bridge.
