If you’re living with a gap in your smile, it can have a serious impact – not only for the appearance of your smile and your self-esteem, but your oral health could take a toll as well. Replacing missing teeth with a dental bridge allows patients to eat, speak, and smile with confidence again!
A dental bridge is a restorative appliance that consists of one or more fabricated teeth made out of a natural looking tooth colored porcelain. Our bridges are fitted and crafted with high precision technology to ensure a perfect, seamless fit. There are several types of bridges – which is right for you will be determined in a consultation with your Cornelius dentist.
Your bridge can be permanent or fixed – secured to surrounding teeth using dental crowns. This is the most secure type of bridge.
Bridges can also be removable – secured to surrounding teeth using tiny metal clasps.
There are many benefits to replacing missing teeth with a dental bridge. Benefits range from functional, to cosmetic, to health:
At Whalen Dentistry, we’re proud of our investment in a state of the art CEREC® milling machine. This piece of advanced technology brings an entire dental lab into a single piece of chairside equipment. In the past, dental bridges required messy impressions, temporary restorations, and return appointments. With CEREC®, we can take digital impressions, design, fabricate and place bridges in a single visit!
