Dental Bridges in Austin, TX

What is
a bridge?

A dental bridge is a permanent tooth replacement option that relies on the surrounding teeth to support the replacement tooth, or pontic. By replacing your missing tooth with a bridge, you can have a complete, beautiful smile that you’ll be proud to show the world!

The treatment process

Why you should replace missing teeth with a bridge?

Replacing missing teeth is not just an aesthetic concern. There are real health benefits to replacing missing teeth, including:

  • Aesthetically restore your smile
  • Restore your chewing and speaking
  • Prevent bone loss in your jaw
  • Prevent changes in your bite
  • Stop teeth from moving into the newly vacated space
  • Prevent periodontal disease and tooth decay

Dr. Nguyen will work closely with you to determine whether or not a dental bridge is the right replacement option for you.

Getting a dental bridge takes at least two visits. During your first visit, Dr. Nguyen will prepare your teeth for crowns by shaving down some of your enamel. Once your teeth are prepared, she will take impressions of your teeth to send to the lab where your custom bridge will be made. Before you leave the office, Dr. Nguyen will fit you with a temporary bridge.

After Dr. Nguyen has received your bridge back from the lab, she will make sure the bridge fits securely and comfortably. Once any necessary adjustments are made, she will cement your bridge in place.
