What Are Dental Bridges and How Do They Work?

Posted By: Dr. Peter Cameron

Are you currently considering teeth replacement options? Maybe you’ve spoken with a dentist about different options to fill in the gaps in your smile. Patients can choose from several effective treatments to restore look and functionality to their smiles, depending on the situation. At Charlestown Dental Care, we can provide our patients with natural, functional restorations thanks to dental bridges.

What Can I Expect With Dental Bridges?

Patients seeking dental bridges in Charlestown can expect expert care and treatment during the process. Our treatment utilises healthy teeth on either side of a gap left by a missing tooth. First, we create dental crowns that match the rest of the existing teeth around them. Then, we cap the healthy teeth on either side of the gap with dental crowns. These dental crowns on either side support a third dental crown placed in the middle, successfully covering the gap. The three crowns combined successfully make up a dental bridge.

How Can My Smile Benefit From Dental Bridges?

Patients eligible for a dental bridge treatment can expect the following benefits and results from their procedure:

  • Seamless integration of dental crowns into their existing smile 
  • Increased functionality while eating and speaking 
  • Support for the surrounding teeth from the dental crown
  • A complete, happy smile for pictures and social events 
  • Potential for increased self-esteem 

Our patients can rely on their dental crowns for years with proper care and check-ups. Our Charlestown dentist is more than happy to provide further information on the possibilities and benefits of this highly effective treatment!
