Bridges in Manteca CA
Are you missing one or more teeth in a row? Bridges can literally bridge the gap between two teeth by filling in your empty spaces with a fixed prosthetic. You do not have to suffer the embarrassment of an incomplete smile or struggle with chewing and speaking. Speak with us at Aura Family Dentistry today so we can discuss how a bridge may benefit your life.

What Are Bridges?
A bridge is a permanent prosthetic composed of crowns that we affix to two anchor teeth. Your mouth can support a bridge with your natural teeth or with
dental implants, making this a versatile restorative option.

Perhaps you are missing a single tooth. In this case, visualize three porcelain crowns connected to one another. The crowns on either end fit over your anchor teeth, also referred to as abutment teeth. The crown in the middle fills your empty space. Once in place, this bridge creates the appearance of a complete, natural smile, and you will regain your speaking and chewing function.

What Are the Benefits of Bridges?
Bridges offer unique restorative benefits to your oral health and appearance. Consider the advantages of choosing a bridge when you wish to replace missing teeth: If your natural teeth are not strong enough, Dr. Damle can provide an oral surgeon, who will place two dental implants that will act as your anchor teeth.

  • The placement of bridges is non-invasive, fast, and requires no recovery time
  • Bridges can replace several teeth in a row in a much more cost-effective manner than several dental implants
  • Bridges offer a long-term solution for missing teeth.
  • Bridges prevent your remaining teeth from shifting, and your jawbone from deteriorating, by replacing the support your natural teeth previously provided
  • Crowns will blend with your current smile for a natural finish

 

Am I a Good Candidate?
If you are missing one tooth, or two or more teeth in a row you are a good candidate for bridges. However, if you are missing all of your teeth or several teeth spread out across your arch, you may need to consider other options, like
dentures or dental implants. In addition, bridgework offers you replacement without a long wait period. We will take impressions during our initial visit and fit you with a temporary bridge. A lab will create your custom bridge and we will place it during your next appointment.
