When is a Dental Bridge a Better Option?

A dental bridge can be a better option than other types of restorations for those missing one or two teeth in a row and prefer to refrain from surgery. Our dentist in Agoura Hills can use a dental bridge in combination with your natural teeth or in combination with dental implants for a healthy and fully restored smile.

Dental bridges suspend false teeth between two crowns, which are bonded to natural teeth or implants. Overall, they replace the look and the function of your natural teeth in just a few dental visits. Our dentist will first ensure that you are a candidate for a dental bridge. To start the treatment, he will then prepare the teeth that will be used to support the bridge by removing a small amount of enamel off of each tooth that will be supporting the bridge. They will then be carefully shaped to fit into the crowns.

Although several options are available for replacing teeth, bridges may be a better option when compared to dentures if you are only missing one or a few teeth. For those highly avoiding surgical solutions or who have insufficient bone or gum tissue to support an implant restoration, dental bridges can be a great alternative. Call us today to learn more or to schedule an appointment with our expert in dental bridges in Agoura Hills.
