Bridges and Crowns

Dental bridges q & a

what are dental bridges?

Dental bridges are an attractive option for replacing lost teeth. The bridge consists of crowns that cover the teeth on either side of the space, linked to the replacement tooth or teeth. The crowns anchor your bridge in place securely. Crowns are available in several materials, including:

  • Gold
  • Ceramic or porcelain
  • A combination of metal and ceramic

In addition to traditional fixed bridges, Scottsdale Dental Bottega offers several alternatives. They can use cantilever bridges if you don’t have teeth on one side of the gap, or Maryland bonded bridges (also known as resin-bonded bridges) to replace missing front teeth.

why should i consider having dental bridges?

Dental bridges offer numerous benefits. They can:

  • Improve your smile
  • Restore the shape of your face
  • Help you chew normally
  • Ensure you speak clearly
  • Take the strain off your other teeth
  • Prevent your other teeth from moving

What happens when i have dental bridges fitted?

Dr. Anna Vaysman begins the process of fitting dental bridges by preparing your adjoining teeth for crowns. These teeth are known as abutment teeth. They require reshaping to ensure the crowns fit correctly, which involves your dentist removing the areas of enamel and dentin (the top two layers of your teeth).

Next, your dentist takes scans of the abutment teeth that go to a dental laboratory where they make your bridge. In the meantime, Dr. Vaysman fits a temporary bridge to protect your abutment teeth.

You return to Scottsdale Dental Bottega when your bridge is ready from the lab. Your dentist removes the temporary bridge and replaces it with the permanent one, adjusting the fit if required. When the bridge fits perfectly, Dr. Vaysman secures it using dental cement.

How long can dental bridges last?

Dental bridges frequently last for many years. Good oral hygiene practices and regular professional teeth cleaning at Scottsdale Dental Bottega could extend the lifespan of your dental bridge.

If missing teeth are affecting the way you talk or eat, or ruining your smile, call Scottsdale Dental Bottega today to inquire about bridges and to get your personalized consultation.

Professional, extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy  and great.

Dr. Vaysman is truly a local treasure. Sometimes “extracting” a positive dental review from a patient can be difficult, but I can assure you of the numerous local dentists, she wears the “crown”.
