Everything You Need To Know About Dental Bridges
Are you suffering the loss of one or more teeth? If the gaps they’ve left behind make you feel self-conscious and reluctant to smile, dental bridges by Seattle dentists Drs. Kim and Cervantes-Kim may be the restorative option you’ve been searching for!
What is a dental bridge?
Just like a literal bridge spans the distance between two unconnected areas, a dental bridge spans the gap left behind by a lost tooth. A replacement tooth (a custom-made porcelain crown), is suspended across the space
and fused to crowns placed on either side of the gap. The result is a strong, attractive, durable restoration.
How will a dental bridge benefit me?
In situations where a dental implant is not an option, a bridge is an excellent alternative. The benefits include:
- Increased self-confidence
- Improved ability to chew and eat
- Your remaining teeth are protected from shifting
- Completely natural-looking appearance
- A long-lasting restoration
Will my dental bridge look natural?
You may have heard the expression, “It’s all in the details.” This is especially true when it comes to dental bridges. Seattle dentists, Drs. Kim and Cervantes-Kim, have an incredibly detail-oriented approach to bridgework. Carefully examining the anatomy of your teeth and the tissue surrounding the missing tooth, their goal is to create a bridge which looks like a natural tooth emerging from your gums. To obtain the best color match possible, at times we’ll arrange the ceramist fabricating your crowns to meet you in person. Once your beautiful crowns are prepared and expertly placed, your smile will look and be complete!
