An overview of dental bridges provided at Lynchburg Family Dentistry

Dental Bridge

Dental bridges are an option to replace missing teeth.  When you are missing a tooth, we can prepare the adjacent tooth or teeth for a crown.  We then attach a fake tooth to the crown and permanently cement the crown into place.

We will go over all of the options to replace a missing tooth with you so that you can make an informed decision.

At the first appointment we will prepare the adjacent tooth or teeth for crowns and make temporary crowns for them.  We will take an impression and send it to the lab.  We will also use a shade guide to find a good color for the bridge so it matches the rest of your teeth.

At the second visit, we will try in your new bridge to make sure that you are satisfied with it.  We will then permanently cement it in place.

If you have any questions about bridges or want to know if a bridge is a good option for you, please get in touch with us.
