Many people feel self-conscious about their missing teeth, but aren't sure what can be done. Fortunately, there are options. At Northland Village Dental Centre in Calgary, we offer dental bridges that can disguise your missing teeth and still look completely natural. Dental bridges can solve functional issues since you can chew, eat normally and speak without inhibition with them. Request an appointment today for this procedure.
How Dental Bridges Work
First, the teeth on either side of the missing tooth are reduced in size in order to make space for the crown that will be placed in the gap. After that, we take an impression of your teeth in order to create a model of your mouth, which will be used to create a custom bridge. While this is being manufactured, you'll be provided with a temporary bridge for the meantime.
Upon your second appointment we will remove the temporary bridge and replace it with the new, permanent one. We will also make any last adjustments that are necessary to make sure it's a good, comfortable fit, before we bond it to your teeth with dental cement.
