For missing teeth, dental bridges can restore your beaming smile to its former lustre. Bridges can be made from gold, gold alloys, porcelain, or other materials, and they can be used to replace one or more missing teeth
Whether you've lost teeth accidentally or you needed an extraction, you can get your smile back with a dental bridge.
Aside from filling the gap where your missing tooth used to be, dental bridges also help you maintain the natural shape of your face. You may not think your teeth have much to do with how you look with your mouth closed, but a missing tooth can age the look of your face with hollow cheeks and over-closed lips.
Chewing and talking can be improved when you replace missing teeth with a dental bridge. Filling the gap also prevents your other teeth from shifting to fill the space. Removable and permanent bridges are available, depending on your needs. At Northmount Dental Care you always have options.
When our NW Calgary dentists place a dental bridge, we will:
Scan the adjacent teeth using an iTero 3D scanner
Upload the scan to our dental lab to create the dental bridge
Cement the bridge in place to replace the missing tooth
Another important option to consider is dental implants to replace your missing teeth. They are often covered by dental insurance, and instead of being supported by nearby teeth, a dental implant is anchored to the jaw bone offering great hygiene, strength and durability.
You may be curious about the cost and insurance coverage for dental bridges. They're more affordable than you might think. If you're not sure about your coverage, we'd love to help and discuss your coverage at a complimentary consultation.
