If you are missing one or several teeth in a row, our dentists at Lord Dufferin Dental Centre may recommend a dental bridge. This treatment restores your smile by literally “bridging” the gap in your smile to provide you with a beautiful, functional, and long-lasting result. To learn more about dental bridges, and to schedule your consultation with our dentists, please call our office at 519-938-9500.
Dental bridges come in both fixed and removable varieties, depending on your specific dental needs. Fixed dental bridges are non-removable, anchored via two dental crowns to surrounding teeth. Removable bridges are similar to a partial denture and are held in place with sturdy clasps.
It typically takes two visits to our office to receive your new dental bridge. During your first visit, we will carefully examine your mouth and make any necessary preparations. These include impressions used in creating your custom restoration. We will provide you with a temporary bridge while your final restoration is being fabricated.
On your second visit, our team will fit the bridge, ensuring that everything is working properly. If you are receiving a fixed bridge, it will be cemented into place on the abutment teeth. You will walk out with a beautiful, functional smile you can be proud of!
If you need to replace one or more adjacent teeth, we invite you to talk to our dentists about a dental bridge!
