A beautiful smile, a better overall appearance, clearer speech, and the ability to chew properly: these are just a few of the benefits of having a full and fully functional set of teeth. However, sometimes due to accident or disease our teeth are missing or don’t function the way they should. Dental bridges are an effective, as well as common procedure. Patients find it to be an affordable procedure with low-risk.
Cosmetic Dentistry With Dr. de Cardenas
Miami’s Dr. Andres (Andy) de Cardenas and his staff of caring, concerned professionals want you to know when you walk into their office no matter your condition they see you first as an individual. That’s why we give you several options when it comes to restoring the appearance, in addition to the function of your teeth. One of those options is fixed bridge.
A fixed bridge is, quite literally, a method of “bridging” the gap created by a missing tooth or by a couple of missing teeth. The bridge consists of two crowns for the teeth on either side of missing tooth or teeth. These two teeth act as an anchor by holding in place the false tooth or teeth (called pontics) between them. Fixed dental bridges in Miami are just that, fixed. Once completed, it is a non-removable appliance.
Dental Bridge Types
How Dr. de Cardenas performs your procedure in his Miami office will depend on the type of dental bridges that best fits your particular circumstance and aesthetic goals.
You can achieve several positive results by having Dr. de Cardenas put in a fixed bridge. Dr. de Cardenas’ fixed bridge patients report improved as well as pain-free chewing, enhanced enunciation, and perhaps most rewarding, an improved smile and appearance.
Fixed Bridge Procedure
A fixed bridge procedure includes the numbing of teeth in order to remove enamel to allow for a crown. Then a mold or impression is made and sent to the laboratory where they will construct the fixed bridge. The patient will have a temporary bridge in the meantime until theirs has been completed. This normally takes several weeks. On your following visit to the dentist, your permanent bridge will be adjusted for proper fit and cemented. Our dentist will carefully go over the type of oral care you will need following this procedure.
Benefits of a Fixed Bridge:
Oral Health Restored
Fill Space of Missing Teeth
Prevents Remaining Teeth From Drifting
Enhance Speaking Ability
