Dental bridge, Linglestown Family Dental in Harrisburg, PA

Dental bridges are prosthetic devices used to replace missing teeth by bridging the gap between two adjacent teeth. They consist of one or more artificial teeth, known as pontics, which are held in place by dental crowns on the teeth adjacent to the gap. Dental bridges offer a reliable and aesthetically pleasing solution for individuals with missing teeth, restoring their ability to chew properly, speak clearly, and maintain facial structure.

The process of getting a dental bridge typically involves two or more dental appointments. During the initial visit, the dentist prepares the adjacent teeth by removing a small portion of enamel to accommodate the crowns. An impression or digital scan of the prepared teeth and the gap is taken to ensure an accurate fit. This impression is then sent to a dental laboratory where skilled technicians create a custom bridge.

In the subsequent visit, the dentist places the bridge, checking the fit, aesthetics, and bite. Once the dentist ensures the bridge fits perfectly, it is permanently cemented into place, effectively closing the gap and restoring the patient’s smile.

Dental bridges can be made from various materials including porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination of these materials. The choice of material depends on factors such as the location of the bridge, the patient’s aesthetic preferences, and the functional requirements of the replacement teeth.

Proper oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups are essential for the long-term success of dental bridges. With proper care, dental bridges can last for many years, providing a durable and functional solution for missing teeth.

A dental bridge offers a practical and effective way to replace missing teeth, restoring both oral function and aesthetics.  If you have missing teeth and are considering dental bridges, call to set an appointment with us at Linglestown Family Dental in Harrisburg, PA.  We will assess your specific needs and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan.
