Dental Bridges

A missing tooth can make you feel embarrassed, particularly if it is in the front of your mouth. You can have that taken care with restorative dentistry at Marbella Dentistry and consulting with one of our dentists about your concern. Perhaps a dental bridge is just the thing you need to get your smile glowing again. Bridges are an excellent solution to the problem of large spaces caused by missing teeth.

Missing teeth can cause a variety of problems like discomfort with eating. You may be avoiding certain foods because they irritate the soft tissue where the teeth are missing or you may not be able to chew effectively. Steak does not work well when back teeth are missing. Corn on the cob is not fun when front teeth are gone. Dental bridges can restore your ability to eat well while restoring an appealing smile.

Why Choose a Dental Bridge

Aesthetically speaking, well-constructed dental bridges are a beautiful way to replace missing teeth. More permanent than a partial denture, bridges look and feel like natural teeth. The bridge piece itself is comprised of porcelain crowns for the abutment teeth attached to porcelain pieces made to look like teeth which fill the spaces left by missing teeth. The two abutment teeth are prepared for crowning then the bridge is slipped onto them and cemented in place. In the case of dental implants, the crowns are attached to titanium posts anchored in the jaw bone. These posts replace natural abutment teeth if they are missing.

The number of missing teeth and the condition of the anchoring teeth play into how the bridge is constructed. Marbella Dentistry dentists have the expertise to ensure that your bridge is constructed in the best way suited for your particular bone structure and dentition. Since bridgework does require special cleaning, we will walk you through the proper way to care for your new bridge. It does not take much more extra effort, however good oral hygiene is critical in preserving the integrity of the device.
