Dental Bridges in Encinitas, CA

Love Your Smile Again with McElroy Smiles By Design

Are you missing teeth or looking into having a tooth pulled soon? Dental bridges may be the perfect solution to replace those missing teeth! Sometimes called a “fixed-partial denture”, a bridge replaces missing teeth and “bridges” the gap created by pulled or missing teeth. They look and act just like a functional tooth. Our experts for dental bridges in Encinitas, CA, can help you restore your smile!

What Is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is used when teeth are pulled or otherwise cannot be salvaged with a filling or a dental crown. They are shaped like an entire tooth, typically made out of porcelain, gold, or alloys, and fixed between two tooth caps that are affixed to the teeth on either side of the gap. The bridge and caps are perfectly matched to your tooth color and shape, which gives you a seamless row of teeth and a flawless smile.

There are many benefits of having a bridge placed. Bridges prevent the surrounding teeth from shifting into the gap or moving around, both of which can cause further unwanted dental problems. Additionally, since missing teeth may impair normal chewing and speaking, a bridge can also help to restore these abilities.

Getting a bridge usually requires two appointments. First, a mold of your teeth will be made, and the surrounding anchor teeth will be prepared for crowns. It takes about two weeks for the lab to finish making your permanent bridge, and the following appointment will be for final fit and placement. After the treatment is complete, the bridge will look and act just like your real teeth!
