Bridges do exactly what the name implies- they bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Healthy natural teeth on either side of the missing tooth are fitted for crowns and fused to a false tooth which replaces the missing tooth. Bridges can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials.
Our dentists will ensure that you understand your options and that your bridge matches the shade of your natural teeth and that it fits seamlessly with your smile.
A bridge is a great treatment option for replacing missing teeth. Having this treatment at McMillan Dentistry solves many of the challenges presented by a missing tooth, including:
With excellent care, you can expect them to last 5 years or longer. Like anything you value, proper care and maintenance will ensure the longest lasting results.
The treatment takes place over 2 appointments. The first appointment involves shaping the supporting teeth that will hold and secure the dental bridge. Once they are shaped an impression of the teeth will be taken for the lab to use to custom build your dental bridge. A temporary bridge will cover the supporting ones while this is done.
A dental lab will make the crowns to fit your teeth and match the shade of your natural ones. At the second appointment our dentist will cement the bridge securely in place. You will now have a strong, functional chewing surface and the appearacnce of a natural looking smile.
