    Who Is A Good Candidate for Dental Bridges?

    Our dental bridges in Houston, TX, are an excellent choice for tooth replacement if you have lost one or more adjacent teeth within the same arch. As indicated by the term ‘bridge,’ they are held by the support of your teeth adjacent to the missing ones. Your abutment teeth need to be in a healthy condition because after bridge placement, they will have to bear strong chewing and biting forces. If your abutment teeth are damaged or decayed, our dentists will address them first with suitable restorative treatment before beginning the process of dental bridges.

    Benefits of Dental Bridges

    Our premium quality dental bridges in Houston, TX, offer many benefits, which include:

    • They efficiently replace two or more missing teeth in the same arch.
    • Dental bridges are fixed, making them more convenient than traditional dentures.
    • They can withstand higher biting and chewing forces compared to dentures.
    • Dental bridges help to restore the normal functions of your teeth, such as eating, chewing, and speaking.
    • They resemble the natural shade and form of your teeth and blend well with the surrounding soft tissues.
    • Because they consist of high-quality materials, dental bridges are durable and can last up to 10 years with proper care.

    Process of Dental Bridges in Houston, TX

    Typically, the procedure of dental bridges requires two appointments. On your first visit, our dentists will prepare your teeth for the placement of dental bridges. To provide a pain-free experience, we will begin the process by injecting a local anesthetic near the supporting teeth. Once your teeth are numb, we will use an electronic device to remove a thin layer of enamel from your abutment teeth to make space for the dental bridge. Following tooth prep, we will record impressions of your upper and lower arches and send them to a dental lab.

    After completion, we will call you for a second appointment. During this visit, our team will test the fitting of the dental bridge before permanently cementing it. Once the process is complete, we will give aftercare instructions to prolong the life of your new dental bridge.
