What Are Dental Bridges?

Also known as fixed partial dentures, dental bridges are designed to bridge the gap between one or more missing teeth. They’re known to be more stable than dentures and don’t require invasive surgery like dental implants.

Bridges are made up of natural-looking prosthetic teeth called pontics, which rely on adjacent teeth on each side to support the restoration. Depending on your individual needs, you can receive your dental bridge in as few as two appointments at our Centuria office.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

In addition to restoring your smile and boosting your self-esteem, dental bridges also improve your oral health. Many unique benefits come with receiving a dental bridge, such as:

  • Maintains the shape of your face
  • Prevents your surrounding teeth from shifting out of place
  • Restores your ability to eat and speak with comfort
  • Decreases the wear and tear of your surrounding teeth


When Are Dental Bridges Necessary?

Dental bridges can help treat damaged or missing teeth that can’t otherwise be fixed with dental crowns or fillings. Dr. Vargas is likely to recommend dental bridges to patients with:

  • Severe tooth damage
  • Tooth decay
  • One or more missing teeth
  • Teeth gaps
  • Difficulty chewing

If you want to restore your smile’s appearance and functionality, dental bridges may be the solution for you. Dr. Vargas can determine if this treatment will be effective for your unique situation at your initial consultation.


Our Dental Bridge Process

The entire dental bridge process is simple and can be completed in as few as two visits to our Centuria dental practice. Your initial visit will consist of Dr. Vargas preparing your anchor teeth by gently removing a small portion of the enamel. She’ll then take detailed impressions of your teeth to create your personalized restoration.

Once your custom bridge is ready, typically about two weeks after your first visit, you’ll return to our Centuria office. Dr. Vargas will make sure the fit and appearance are exactly how you want it before fixing the dental bridge into place. After it’s secure, you’ll walk out of our office ready to show the world your beautiful, restored smile.
