Dental Bridges in Union, MO

Union Dental Bridges
When a tooth has been lost and healthy teeth are located on both sides of the newly missing tooth or teeth, then a fixed dental bridge is a treatment option. 
 

How Does A Dental Bridge Work?

 

The procedure for having a fixed dental bridge made is essentially the same as having a crown made except that a fixed bridge involves at least two supporting teeth. What can cause confusion is the number of teeth needed for a fixed bridge. To replace one missing tooth requires a three tooth bridge. This is because the teeth on both sides of the missing tooth must be part of the bridge to provide support.

 

What Is The Dental Bridge Procedure Like?
 

Fixed dental bridges are typically made from porcelain with a metal sub-structure and require at least two appointments to complete. The first appointment is used to prepare and temporize the teeth. The second appointment is the delivery appointment to adjust and cement the fixed bridge in place. Occasionally a third appointment is needed if the span of the bridge is long and the supporting framework for the bridge needs to be tried in before the porcelain is applied to the framework.
 
Even though all of the teeth of the bridge are physically connected, the final result makes it look like the teeth are individual and natural.
