Dental Bridges in Allen Park, MI

Convenience You Can Count On

Living with missing teeth can be an awful feeling. It can leave you feeling incomplete and inadequate. A dental bridge fills the gap between missing teeth to complete your smile and restore your confidence.

A dental bridge can be the perfect treatment compromise. Bridges provide more stability than dentures, but they don’t require surgery like dental implants. It’s an affordable way to restore one or more teeth without having to wait months to see the results.

The Benefits of a Dental Bridge

In addition to improving your confidence, dental bridges can improve your oral health for years to come. There are various advantages to having a dental bridge placed, including:

  • Prevent surrounding teeth from drifting into place
  • Restore the ability to eat and speak
  • Prevent opposing teeth from elongating to compensate for missing teeth
  • Evenly distribute chewing forces
  • Decrease wear and tear on surrounding teeth
  • Prevent jawbone deterioration
  • Maintain the shape of your face
  • Restore your bite

Beautiful porcelain crowns fill in the gap of your smile and are placed on adjacent teeth to hold the bridge in place. Your new smile will be well-supported and beautiful.

The Path to a Complete Smile

During your initial consultation with Dr. Cannon, she’ll examine your oral health to ensure you’re an excellent candidate for a dental bridge. There are various types of bridges that can be customized to fit your needs. Dr. Cannon will make the decision based on the location and number of missing teeth.

Restoring your smile with a dental bridge is simple and typically completed over the course of two appointments:

  1. Prior to beginning, Dr. Cannon will numb your teeth and surrounding areas to ensure you’re pain free throughout the process.
  2. The teeth surrounding the gap, called anchor teeth, will be prepared for dental crowns.
  3. Impressions will be made and sent to the lab where your dental bridge will be made.
  4. When your new restoration is ready, you’ll come in for a second appointment where we’ll make any final adjustments and secure it in place.
  5. You’ll leave our office with your new beautiful smile!
