Do you have a gapped smile because of one or more missing teeth? A dental bridge in Norristown, Pennsylvania, can bridge that gap and give you the complete, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted!
Dr. Carp, Dr. Oh, Dr. Yu, and Dr. Goldwater offer dental bridges at Carp Dental to give you the full, stunning smile you dream of. The bridge has the capability of restoring your smile, maintaining the shape of your face, preventing remaining teeth from shifting around, and restoring your ability to chew and speak. The bridge is usually anchored by two supporting teeth on both sides to hold the false teeth inside the gaps. The teeth can be made of gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of materials. If you do not have two natural teeth to anchor the bridge, your dentist can install an implant that will hold the bridge in place.
This process generally takes two visits to complete. The first visit involves preparing the abutment teeth, which includes filing or shaving them to allow a crown to be placed over the top. Impressions of the teeth will then be sent to the lab so your custom bridge can be created. During the second visit, your bridge will be checked and adjusted to your liking. If it fits perfectly for you, your dentist will cement it into place.
