Bridges:

The purpose of a dental bridge is to replace missing teeth by using the existing teeth on either side of the space to hold in a false tooth. Your dentist at Chesapeake Smiles will construct your bridge from one of several materials. Bridges can be made from porcelain, gold, or metal alloys. After the bridge is made, it is permanently cemented to the adjacent teeth.


Bridges Treatment At Chesapeake Smiles:

This treatment option usually requires two appointments to your family dentist. The first appointment is to prepare your teeth and to take an impression so the lab can make your permanent bridge. Usually, a temporary bridge is placed over the teeth to protect them while the permanent is being made. The second appointment is to accurately fit and cement the permanent bridge. With proper hygiene and care, a dental bridge has the potential to last a patient for the rest of their life.
