Is your smile marred by spaces or gaps? Are there teeth missing from your smile? Do you long to have your smile restored? Dr. Douglas A Deam may recommend a dental bridge in Coral Gables, Florida! Dental bridges are made to close gaps created by missing teeth. A bridge is made of two crowns with one or more replacement teeth in between. The crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap, abutment teeth, to anchor the false teeth. Bridges can be anchored by either natural teeth or implants. Dental bridges have can do the following:
- Restore your smile
- Restore the ability to chew and speak properly
- Maintain your face shape
- Properly distribute your bite
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting
Before placing a dental bridge, our dentist prepares the abutment teeth by removing a small amount of enamel. This allows room for crowns to be placed over them. Impressions of the teeth are made so the bridge can be constructed. When the bride is ready, our dentist will check the fit. Any necessary adjustments are made and the bridge is cemented into place.
