Dental Bridges in East Los Angeles, CA
Bridge the Gap & Smile Confidently Again
Our experienced cosmetic dentists may recommend a bridge if your tooth can’t be salvaged with a filling or crown, yet you still want a fully functioning tooth. A bridge also prevents your remaining teeth from moving out of position, which can cause other unwanted dental problems. In addition, a dental bridge will enhance your ability to speak and chew normally. If you have a missing tooth, our cosmetic dentists can replace the gap with dental bridges in East Los Angeles, CA.
Sometimes called a “fixed partial denture,” a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth used to be. Bridges are made from gold, alloys, porcelain – or a combination of materials – to match your natural teeth. A fixed bridge is attached to surrounding teeth for support. Unlike a removable bridge, a fixed bridge must be removed by a dentist.
Dental Bridges Are a Great Option for Many Patients
Getting a bridge usually requires two appointments. We craft a mold of your teeth and prepare the surrounding anchor teeth for permanent crowns. A dental laboratory takes about two weeks to create your bridge, followed by an office visit for your final fit. Once the process is complete, your bridge will look and act just like your natural teeth – no one will be able to tell you are wearing one!
After your bridge is installed, we encourage patients to care for bridges just as they would for regular teeth. A good brushing and flossing routine is usually the only maintenance necessary. In addition, feel free to give our office a call if you have any discomfort once your bridge is in place.
