A Dental Bridge, used to replace one or more missing teeth, is a fixed restoration created by the support of the adjacent teeth. The false teeth are generally made of alloys, porcelain or a combination of the two. Bridges help restore your smile and corrects the ability to bite or talk properly.
The procedure of getting a dental bridge usually takes 2 visits. In the first visit, the adjacent teeth of the gap are prepared to fit the bridge. A mold of the teeth is made and a temporary bridge may be put in place to protect the exposed teeth. In the second visit, the temporary bridge is taken off and the permanent bridge is fitted. Additional visits may be required to ensure the fit of the bridge is correct.
• The dental bridge can last 10 years or more.
• Keeping good dental hygiene and care for the remaining surrounding teeth is important as the bridge is supported by adjacent teeth.
• After the bridge is put in place, it should correct your speech and your ability to chew. Try eating softer foods until the bridge becomes more comfortable.
I wish City Dental could serve the whole city; they were excellent. The reception staff were helpful, knowledgeable and funny. Wait times were non-existent, the office was squeaky-clean, and the atmosphere was pleasant. Dr. Gill and his assistant are very accommodating, keep you informed every step of the way, and provide efficient and effective service at great prices. Top-notch clinic.
Everyone in the office is extremely friendly and make you feel at ease. Dr. Gill is extremely knowledgeable and is excellent at calming my fears and addressing any of my concerns. He is patient and takes his time in explaining any issue and making it very easy to understand. I would highly recommend City Dental and Dr. Gill for anyone who is looking for a great dental experience.
Dr. Gill has an excellent chair side manner and is all about options. He has up to date equipment and weighs the pros and cons of each possible approach and outcome. I couldn't have been in better hands. Dr. Gill was thorough, gentle and efficient in performing a root canal and made my tooth pain go away. His pricing is very reasonable and the entire staff is very friendly and attentive.
