With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in just one visit. We will develop and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer milling unit right in the office. You no longer have to have a temporary crown or wait weeks for the lab to produce your crown.

A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple kinds of bridges. We will go over the best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge includes 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last many years with appropriate home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill area of missing teeth.
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
- Upgrade from a detachable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge generally requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a part of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a extremely accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental lab where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for numerous weeks until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully inspected, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a appropriate fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why You Should Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area produced by a missing tooth. It is formed to appear like the missing tooth, and it takes its place in the mouth. The sides of a bridge uses the two surrounding teeth for assistance, hence the name. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. Bridge work is as much an art as it is an precise science. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is essential that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to shift inward, developing an entire domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can ultimately lead to issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth deteriorate and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a serious problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
