Do you have a missing tooth that drives you insane? Are you sometimes embarrassed to show your smile while out in public? Are you seeking a restorative solution?
At El Dorado Hills Town Center Dental, we staff restorative dentists in El Dorado Hills, CA skilled at addressing these issues through the creation of dental bridges at a location near you.
Needing a dental bridge is nothing to be ashamed of. As we get older, it is natural for people to start losing their permanent teeth because of injuries, accidents, and regular decay.
A bridge is a cosmetic and restorative appliance designed to replace a missing tooth (or teeth) in the smile. It consists of a synthetic tooth and an attachment mechanism that is permanently placed in the mouth.
At El Dorado Hills Town Center Dental, we strive to be the foremost provider of bridges in El Dorado Hills, CA. We use the latest techniques and technologies to ensure your new appliance is comfortable and well-fitted for your smile. The attachment mechanisms we use include metal wires which are hidden behind your teeth, or composite resin crowns attached to your nearby healthy teeth.
Any individual who is missing teeth can request a dental bridge to fill the gaps in their smile. However, there are some requirements. First and foremost, a bridge needs to be applied to healthy gums and attached to healthy teeth.
If you are suffering from a condition like periodontal disease or tooth decay, our trained professionals will create a custom treatment plan for you to help your mouth recover and get where it needs to be for the insertion of a bridge.
Receiving a bridge will take at least two appointments. First, you will schedule a consultation with us at our office in El Dorado Hills, CA. Once you arrive, our dentist will evaluate your current level of oral health. If your teeth and gums are healthy, they will discuss with you your preference for the bridge and can make a mold to send to our dental lab.
The lab takes around two weeks to complete the bridge. You then return for the second appointment, during which the bridge is fitted.
