Our skilled dentists may recommend replacing your missing teeth with a dental bridge. Bridges can replace a single tooth or several missing teeth, and they provide you with a stable, long-lasting solution for your smile and oral health. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Mirci and Dr. Dan and learn more about dental bridges in Salt Lake City, Utah, call Mirci Dental today at 801-486-1155.
We may recommend a dental bridge to:
- Restore your ability to speak, eat and chew normally
- Relieve stress on your bite
- Prevent your remaining teeth from shift out of place
- Improve the appearance of your smile by closing the gap between your teeth
- Replace a partial denture
- Improve the shape and volume of your face
Dental bridges are a type of fixed restoration. This means that they are placed permanently in your mouth and can only be removed by a dentist. Bridges are anchored in place through the use of dental crowns placed on either side of the bridge. These crowns may be placed on the teeth or on dental implants. These crowns help keep the bridge in place so that does not shift out of place and will continue to function properly.
Bridges typically take two appointments to complete. During the first the teeth are cleaned and prepared, and an impression is taken. This impression is used to create the bridge and the adjoining crowns. When you return for the second appointment our dentists will place the bridge, check that it fits and permanently bond it into place.
