Missing teeth can be a source of worry and embarrassment, but it doesn’t have to be that way. If you are missing multiple teeth and would like a natural looking tooth replacement, a dental bridge by Dr. Wagner and his Las Vegas, Nevada team could be exactly what you have been looking for.
Like all tooth restorations there are both health and cosmetic benefits that include:
• Teeth on either side of the gap will not be able to move
• Bite preservation
• Prevents ‘sunken face’
• Eating without difficulty
• Beautiful, natural looking smile
The most common bridge is known as a fixed bridge. Dr. Wagner will prepare the two abutting teeth and place a crown on each. Then, a fabricated tooth (pontic) will be placed between them and bonded for a secure fit.
Consider coming to see us if you:
If you think a dental bridge might be a good option to solve your issue, Dr. Wagner and his team will ensure they understand your personal goals and expectations for your dental bridge.
First the doctor will prepare the anchoring teeth. This typically requires the removal of some enamel. Then, he will take impressions in order for the dental lab to fabricate a perfectly matched bridge.
You will be fitted with a temporary bridge to protect the exposed teeth and gums while your permanent bridge is being made. When your permanent bridge is ready, the doctor will cement the bridge into place.
