AGD Member
 

Dental bridges are a type of restoration used to replace missing teeth. Your existing teeth, or dental implants, are used to create a bridge crossing the area where your tooth is missing.

The bridge is made of porcelain, which is purple before it is baked. After porcelain is baked and solidified, its color changes to a natural tooth color.

Dr. Garcia will design her patient’s dental bridge by first creating the abutments out of the patient’s existing teeth or dental implants. Our practice uses CEREC technology to virtually model and propose designs for our patient’s abutments which serve as the base for the bridge.

After the abutments have been created and placed in our patient’s mouth, Dr. Garcia uses CEREC's image acquisition unit to propose a bridge that will fit properly and feel as close to your natural teeth as possible. The bridge usually consists of two crowns on either end to place on the abutments, and a pontic, which is the artificial tooth that will take place of your missing one.   

If you are missing a tooth you may want to consider having it replaced. Besides the aesthetic aspect of missing a tooth, it could also cause structural changes to your mouth and jaw, as well as making it difficult to eat or speak properly. Set up an appointment today to let our practice help you restore your smile.
