At Carolina Smiles Family Dentistry, we want you to have the very best smile possible. Your oral health and well-being are at the heart of everything we do. We know what missing or damaged teeth can do to a great smile and to your confidence. They can impact your professional life as well as your social life, affect your speech and the shape of your face.
We offer a number of high quality restorative dental services including fixed dental bridges. A dental bridge is a device that replaces a set of missing adjacent teeth to fill in your smile. The bridge is held in place by the adjoining natural teeth on either side of the gap. These teeth provide the “anchors” for your dental bridge, with crowns placed over them to hold the bridge in place.
The missing teeth are replaced with durable and natural looking replacement teeth, and your smile is restored to its original splendor. Your dental bridge will also serve to keep your adjacent teeth from moving out of position.
What to Expect
To ensure a proper fit with your natural teeth, and a seamless pattern for your smile, your dentist will remove some of the enamel from the anchor teeth. This will help the crowns to fit over the anchor teeth and blend with the adjoining teeth.
Your dentist may schedule several visits with you before cementing the bridge into place just to make sure that the device is fitting comfortably and is conforming properly to the overall appearance of your smile. Once any necessary adjustments have been made, your dental bridge will be fixed permanently into place.
