Improving Your Smile Appearance with Dental Bridges
A bridge is a special prosthetic designed fill in the gap in a patient's smile. Every bridge from Distinctive Smiles of Dublin features a replacement tooth (known as a pontic) along with custom-made crown on either side of it. The crowns are placed over existing teeth to provide the entire prosthetic with stability. Once your finished bridge is finally in place, you can look forward to enjoying better functionality, better appearance, and better health.
A full procedure with a crown and bridge can be completed in two or three visits. During the first appointment, Dr. Buck or Dr. Burton will discuss the process with you and plan your custom-made bridge. We’ll also prepare the healthy teeth that will be capped crowns. Temporary crowns will protect them in between your first visit and your return visit. Then, when our lab has finished making your bridge, you’ll come back to our Dublin office to have it attached.

For patients who need to replace multiple teeth, we can talk to you about treatment with a partial denture. We can also talk to you about treatment with dental implants. Because of their special structure, dental implants are able to provide patients with more lifelike results. Contact our Dublin office to schedule your appointment.
