If you’re unhappy with your smile or have lost a tooth, dental bridges may be able to help. A dental bridge is a dental restoration that consists of two components —pontics and abutments. Pontics are crowns for the end teeth that support the bridge, while abutments are false teeth that serve as replacements for the missing tooth or teeth. Dental bridges are one of three types of dental treatments that can restore a missing tooth.

In Los Angeles, CA, Dental Line offers many dental restoration services to meet all of your oral health needs.

A dental bridge is a fixed restoration that connects two adjacent teeth on either side of the gap where one or more teeth are missing. This allows you to regain your natural bite strength to perform everyday functions such as speaking and chewing. Bridges also help improve overall oral health by preventing other teeth from shifting out of place or becoming decayed or infected due to poor alignment.

Dental bridges are made from metal alloys, porcelain fused with metal (PFM), or resin materials bonded onto natural tooth surfaces using dental adhesives or cement. Bridges should be properly bonded to ensure that they can withstand biting forces without breaking or falling out over time.

A dental bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial ones. It can be attached to one remaining tooth, teeth on either side of the gap, or implants. One advantage of dental bridges is that they can be placed in one visit, making your smile look more complete and natural, while avoiding healing time that you would have with implants. A dental bridge can last many years if you take good care of it.

Here are some other benefits:

Convenient — Dental bridges are convenient because they don’t require special tools or equipment to fit properly into place. They’re also easy to clean and maintain. Our team will explain how to effectively care for your bridge so you can spend less time worrying about your smile and more time enjoying it!

Long-lasting — This procedure is designed to last many years with proper maintenance, but we’ll be there for you if something goes wrong! Our team will ensure that everything is working properly so that you don’t have to deal with any problems down the road.

Traditional Bridge

The traditional type of bridge is made up of two crowns and a set of fake teeth that connects them. It can replace one missing tooth, two missing teeth, or three missing teeth. The fake teeth are usually made of Zirconia or Imax, but other options such as gold or porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crowns are also possible. This type of bridge does not require additional dental work, but it has some disadvantages.

Cantilever Bridge

A cantilever bridge is similar to a traditional dental bridge except that it has only one natural tooth supporting it. The fake tooth is only attached to one other real tooth which allows the dentist to preserve your tooth structure since she won’t have to prepare a second tooth for the crown. A cantilever bridge typically lasts about ten years before having to be replaced because the screws that support it may become loose over time. Cantilever bridges cost less than traditional bridges, but they are more difficult to place and they are slightly less stable.

Resin-Bonded Bridge

A resin-bonded bridge is typically made from porcelain or zirconia crowns bonded to the adjacent teeth. The porcelain is high in strength and durability, making it ideal for this type of restoration.

The length of time it takes to get your new bridge depends on many factors, such as how long it takes for your dentist to prepare the abutment teeth, how long it takes for the laboratory to make your new bridge, and how long it takes for your dentist to place the bridge once it arrives in our office. Most people can expect their new bridges within 4-6 weeks after receiving their impressions and final meeting with their dentist.

Contact Us

The first step is getting an impression of your mouth so that it can be duplicated in a lab and turned into a custom-fitted bridge or denture. The dentists at Dental Line will use something called alginate to create a mold in your mouth. This material is similar to the plaster of Paris but has less risk of causing allergic reactions in some people. The material will be set up quickly and then removed from your mouth to be processed. Once this process has been completed, the impression will be matched with the restorative materials chosen by the doctor based on your needs and desires.

The dentist will make a temporary bridge by placing temporary cement across the gap between these two crowns in order to hold them in place until after you’ve had an impression taken of your mouth so that they can make molds of them for use when making your permanent bridge. This can take several weeks for the bridge and artificial tooth to be made, depending on how busy the lab is!

Contact Us

The best way to keep your bridge healthy is by following your normal proper oral hygiene by brushing twice daily and flossing once daily (or using another interdental cleaner). This is the same process as caring for your natural teeth. Remember regular visits with your dentist, too! These visits will let us check for cavities and ensure everything is still healthy in your mouth.

The cost of a dental bridge can vary widely depending on the type of material used and the size of the bridge. A small, minimally invasive bridge can be less than $1,000, while a larger, more complex one can cost $5,000 or more.

As with most cosmetic procedures, it’s important to work with an experienced cosmetic dentist who can help you find a treatment plan right for your budget and needs and determine what your bridge includes.
