A dental bridge in Meridian, Idaho, are made of two or more crowns that are placed on the remaining natural teeth on both sides of the gap in your mouth. Between these crowns are false teeth that fill the space in your smile and improve your appearance. Bridges can be made to match the color of your existing teeth and to restore the function of your bite.
Fixed bridges are an effective option for patients who wish to have a complete, functional, and beautiful smile once again. They are also beneficial for those who wish to:
- Restore their smile
- Regain the ability to properly speak and chew again
- Maintain the shape of their face
- Prevent the remaining natural teeth from drifting out of place
The process of installing a bridge involves your friendly dentist, Dr. Matthew Tuft, preparing the natural teeth. Those teeth will be shaved down along the surfaces to allow room for the crowns. Once they are filed to the correct size, your dentist will make impressions of your teeth and will send them to a lab to be made for you. Once they are created, he will check and adjust the bridge to fit perfectly in your mouth. When he finds the right placement, it will be cemented into place.
