Dental Bridges in Pearland, TX

If you have a gap in your teeth and are tired of having it affect how your smile looks or what you can eat, consider having a dental bridge in Pearland. This dental prosthetic is effective at restoring both the function and the appearance of a smile. Afroz Burges, DDS, PA offers you quality dental bridges in Pearland, TX.

What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges are prosthetic devices that are fixed in the mouth. They consist of the pontic, the actual tooth replacement, which can be made of a variety of materials, and dental crowns that anchor the bridge to the abutment teeth (teeth that neighbor the gap). There are several types of dental bridges available. The type that will be used for your case will depend on the location of the gap in your mouth and your personal preferences.

How Are Dental Bridges Placed?

To place a dental bridge two visits to our dental clinic in Pearland, TX, will be required. People from neighboring areas such as Fresno, Shadow Creek Ranch, and Brookside Village can also have dental bridges placed, after a consultation visit with our dental practitioner. At your first visit our tooth bridge dentist at Afroz Burges, DDS, PA will examine your mouth and the existing gap. Then the area will need to be prepared to receive the bridge. To do this, the dentist will prepare the abutment teeth to receive dental crowns by shaving them down. An impression will then be taken of the prepared teeth plus the gap between them. A dental laboratory will use this information to create a dental bridge. While waiting for the bridge to be completed, a temporary bridge will be placed on the area to protect the prepared teeth.

Once the bridge is completed, you will return to our office to have the temporary bridge removed and replaced by the permanent bridge, which will be bonded into place. Adjustments may need to be made to the bridge to achieve the perfect fit, but you can then expect to have your smile's function and appearance restored.

If you are ready to restore your smile, schedule an appointment with our tooth bridge dentist near you at Afroz Burges, DDS, PA today to talk about your tooth replacement options, including having a dental bridge placed.
