Dental Bridges

At Canton Dental, we understand the importance of a beautiful smile. That's why we offer dental bridges as one of our services to help you restore your teeth and regain your confidence.

Dental bridges are prosthetic devices that are used to replace missing teeth. They consist of two or more crowns, also known as abutment teeth, on either side of the gap and a false tooth or teeth in between them. The abutment teeth serve as anchors for the bridge, while the false tooth fills in the space where your natural tooth is missing.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges offer several benefits, including:

  • Restoring your ability to chew and speak properly: Missing teeth can make it difficult to eat certain foods and speak clearly. Dental bridges help you regain these functions.
  • Maintaining your facial structure: When teeth are missing, the surrounding bone may start to deteriorate, which can affect your facial structure. Dental bridges prevent this from happening by filling in the gap.
  • Improving your smile: Dental bridges not only fill in gaps, but they can also improve the appearance of your smile. They are custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth.
  • Distributing biting force evenly: When a tooth is missing, the remaining teeth may have to bear more pressure while chewing. This can lead to uneven wear and tear on your teeth. Dental bridges distribute the biting force evenly across all teeth, preventing this issue.

The Process of Getting Dental Bridges

Getting dental bridges at Canton Dental is a simple process that typically requires two visits. During the first visit, our dentist will prepare the abutment teeth by removing a small portion of their enamel to make room for the crowns. Then, impressions of your teeth will be taken to create custom-made bridges that fit perfectly in your mouth.

During the second visit, the bridges will be placed and adjusted for a perfect fit. Our dentist may also make necessary adjustments after a few days to ensure your comfort and satisfaction.

Dental Bridges FAQs

How long do dental bridges last?

With proper care and maintenance, dental bridges can last for 5-15 years or even longer. Regular brushing and flossing, as well as routine dental check-ups, can help prolong the lifespan of your dental bridge.

Will getting a dental bridge be painful?

The process of getting a dental bridge is usually painless as it is done under local anesthesia. You may experience some mild discomfort or soreness after the procedure, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

Can anyone get a dental bridge?

Not everyone is a good candidate for dental bridges. Our dentist will evaluate your oral health and determine if you have enough healthy teeth to support the bridge. If not, alternative options such as dental implants may be recommended. Additionally, proper oral hygiene and healthy gums are important for the success of a dental bridge.  Our team at Canton Dental will work with you to determine the best treatment plan for your specific needs and concerns.
