Dental Bridges Louisville, CO

Dental Bridges An Overview

Dental bridges have been a traditional option for replacing lost or missing teeth. An oral appliance that can be fixed or removable, a dental bridge can replace one lost tooth or “bridge the gap” between several consecutive lost teeth for a complete and functional smile. Dr. Hughes offers several treatment options for replacing missing teeth, including dental bridges that can be custom matched to your smile and permanently fixed with dental implants for a stable and secure result.

The many advances in materials, techniques and technology have benefited patients with dental restorations that are more life like and supportive of long term dental health. Dental bridges can now provide comfortable and lasting tooth replacement using high quality ceramics and advanced techniques for anchoring to neighboring teeth or new implants. Although dental bridges can be removable, a fixed option is recommended whenever possible to provide benefits for your overall dental health and quality of life.

It is important for the health and longevity of your smile to replace missing teeth as soon possible with the most appropriate option. Dr. Hughes takes all factors of your lifestyle, oral and overall health into consideration when recommending the most suitable treatment options for your smile.

Dental Bridges What to Expect

The dental bridge process begins with a consultation to discuss your personal goals and examine your oral health. Dr. Hughes will work with you to determine the best way to secure your new bridge for a fixed, secure result.

If your dental bridge is to be secured with new dental implants, this part of the treatment will take place first and Dr. Hughes will coordinate the surgical phase with a local specialist. To fabricate your custom dental bridge, dental impressions will be taken and sent to a dental lab along with custom shade recommendations for an aesthetically pleasing result.

Once ready, Dr. Hughes will place your dental bridge and secure to the anchor teeth, giving you back a beautiful smile that feels and looks natural.
