Our Pickering dentists often use dental bridges to replace missing teeth and help restore your smile.
This dental procedure usually requires two dental appointments.
Your dentist will begin by recontouring the teeth and taking impressions. They will then provide you with a temporary bridge to wear until your custom bridge is ready.
At your next visit, your dentist will remove the temporary bridge. They will fit your new bridge into place by permanently bonding it to existing natural teeth or to implants or crowns that have been placed for this purpose.
A dental bridge can help to restore the natural contour of your teeth, as well as the bite between your upper and lower teeth.
Dental bridges are custom-made for each patient and are barely noticeable when worn.
By filling in a gap in your teeth with a bridge, your dentist will also help prevent your other teeth from shifting around and causing future dental issues, like gum disease.
