At Ottawa Dentistry, our dentists may use dental bridges to replace one or more missing teeth to restore your smile.
A dental bridge is a dental restoration made up of one or more artificial teeth to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Dental bridges are custom-made for each patient and barely noticeable when worn.
A bridge procedure usually requires two dental appointments. At the first appointment, your dentist will recontour your teeth and then take dental impressions. Next, they will provide you with a temporary bridge.
At your next visit, your dentist will remove the temporary bridge and permanently bond your new bridge to existing natural teeth or to a dental implant or dental crown that has been placed for this purpose.
A dental bridge can help to restore the natural contour of your teeth and your bite.
By filling in a gap in your teeth with a bridge, your dentist will also help prevent your other teeth from shifting around and causing future dental issues, like gum disease.
We're always happy to welcome new patients to our practice...and look forward to meeting you!Book Online
