Looking for a solution to replace missing teeth and restore your smile? Dental bridges offered by Gulf Coast Dental Care might be the answer. As a cornerstone of restorative dentistry, dental bridges are designed to fill the gap left by one or more missing teeth, anchored securely on either side by natural teeth or dental implants. Our experienced dentists and team specializes in creating custom-made bridges that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, restoring both the function and aesthetics of your smile.

Understanding Dental Bridges

Dental bridges consist of two main components: the pontic or false tooth, which fills the gap and the crowns that are affixed to the anchoring teeth or implants on either side of the gap. Made from durable materials like porcelain, ceramics or composite resin, bridges are crafted to match the color, shape and size of your natural teeth, ensuring a natural-looking and long-lasting solution.

The Dental Bridge Process

The process for getting a dental bridge begins with a comprehensive evaluation of your oral health and the preparation of the anchoring teeth or implants. This involves reshaping these teeth to ensure a proper fit for the bridge. Impressions of your teeth are then taken to create a model from which the custom bridge will be crafted. While the permanent bridge is being made, a temporary bridge may be placed to protect the prepared teeth. Once ready, the final bridge is adjusted and cemented into place, restoring your smile’s appearance and functionality.
