Reasons to Get a Fixed Bridge

If you have a gap in your teeth or are missing teeth, you are certainly a candidate for a fixed bridge. Those are only some of the more common reasons that people get bridges. Here’s a full list:

  • Fill the gap of missing teeth
  • Maintain your facial shape
  • Prevent remaining teeth from shifting
  • Restore chewing ability
  • Help with speaking
  • Bring back your smile

Process for a Fixed Bridge

Once you come in for a consultation, our dental team determines which bridge is best for you. Often, we suggest the more popular traditional bridge, which is made by fusing porcelain to metal. These bridges are fixed into your mouth and look just like your natural teeth – no one can tell the difference in your beautiful smile!

Typically, the process to get a fixed bridge goes as follows:

Visit 1

  • Remove enamel in and around the spot of your new bridge
  • Take a mold of your mouth

Visit 2

  • Insert and adjust your new bridge for a proper fit
  • Cement the bridge to your mouth
  • Go through care instructions and dental treatments

Keep in mind that while dental bridges are highly durable and should last many years, you may need to consider a replacement as some point due to normal wear.
