When might you need a dental bridge?

                                                 

Dental bridges   replaces missing teeth with false teeth. The bridge is attached to the real teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing teeth. Bridges are usually made of porcelain or metal, or a mixture of the two. They are fixed in place and, for some people, are an alternative to dentures. You might need a dental bridge if you have a missing tooth or teeth and have healthy teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing teeth. The Texas City Dental in Texas City is conveniently located near t La Marque, Galveston, and Hitchcock area is conveniently located near to the HEB and ROSS market complex, which is the best option available and accepts Medicaid.

What happens during a dental bridge procedure?

To prepare for a dental bridge, your dentist will usually file down the two healthy teeth on either side of the gap. Your dentist will then take a mold to make your bridge. Dental crowns and bridges are used either to cover damaged teeth or fill gaps between the teeth. These are fixed prosthetic parts that can only be removed by a dentist and are usually cemented onto teeth or implants. They are not removable devices such as dentures which you can take out and clean.

Picking the right Bridge

When it comes to both Dental bridges  , there are several materials that can be used. Based on the location of the missing tooth (or teeth), aesthetic considerations, its function, and cost, your dentist can help you decide which one to use. You can match the natural colour of your teeth using porcelain or ceramic bridges.

How are Crowns and Bridges made?

The size of the tooth is reduced before a bridge, or a crown is actually formed. This is done so that the crown fits over the teeth properly. Once the outer surface of the teeth is removed, your dentist would take an impression of your teeth to make an exact mold for the bridge or crown.
