Dental Bridges Boerne - Implant-supported Bridges and More
A bridge is one of several options to replace one or more missing teeth. The best way to explain a bridge is that it is a crown on teeth on either side where a tooth is missing with artificial teeth connected in between. There are other alternatives to bridges such as an implant or removable partial denture. The advantage of the implant is that no other adjacent teeth need to have crowns. The advantage of the partial is typically reduced cost. The advantage of the bridge is speed with which the space is filled. The 2 appointment bridge procedure begins with preparing the designated teeth for crowns and making an impression. The impression is then sent to the laboratory and we typically have the bridge back in about 2-3 weeks. The bridge is then cemented permanently in place and the patient immediately begins functioning normally .
