Dental bridges use your existing teeth to hold an artificial tooth in place. This is a cheaper tooth replacement option than implants. Dental bridges are made from gold, metal, alloys, or porcelain to ensure that they are strong and durable.

The process of creating a dental bridge begins by re-shaping the teeth that will support the bridge. A mold is then taken of the teeth around the missing tooth and sent to a dental lab. The lab is able to use the mold to create a dental bridge that will fit properly and feel as close to your natural teeth as possible.

Dr. Mitchell will fit you with a temporary bridge while he waits for the lab to make your permanent bridge. Once the permanent bridge is made it will be set in your mouth using a permanent adhesive.

If you are missing a tooth you should strongly consider having it replaced. Please call Dr. Mitchell and make an appointment to fix your smile today.
