Bridge the Gap in Your Smile With This Beneficial Dental Restoration

There are many dental restorations in the world today that can replace your missing teeth and give you the smile you have always wanted. But which one provides strong and reliable results without requiring extensive surgery? A dental bridge does!

A dental bridge in Portland, Oregon, is a restoration made of two or more dental crowns and beautiful artificial teeth. The bridge is anchored by the remaining natural teeth that lie on both sides of the gap in your mouth and it successfully provides sturdy and strong results.

What are the benefits of a dental bridge?
There are many benefits of a dental bridge. This successful dental restoration can restore your smile, give you the ability to properly chew and speak again, and maintain the shape of your face. A bridge can also give you the force you need in your bite and prevent remaining natural teeth from drifting out of place.

What is the process of placing a dental bridge?
Placing a dental bridge into your smile will be a simple and easy process. However, it will require two visits to our office. Your first visit will involve your dentist trimming the enamel of the natural teeth that will hold the bridge in place. The trimming will help the dental crowns fit over the teeth. Once those teeth are the proper size, your dentist will take impressions of those teeth and will send those impressions to a dental lab. While you wait for your bridge to be created, you will wear a temporary restoration.

During your second visit, your dentist will check the size and fit of the bridge and will cement it into place if it exceeds all expectations.
