Dental Bridge – Oklahoma City, OK
Rebuild Your Smile with a Bridge
Despite the latest innovations in dentistry, tooth loss is still a problem for many Americans. If you’re among those who have lost a tooth or two over the years, you don’t need to live with an incomplete smile. The most convenient solution to replace 1 to 3 teeth in a row is with a dental bridge in Oklahoma City. Dr. Swearingen will rebuild a beautiful, functional smile using advanced dental technology.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge, also known as a bridge and crowns, is a fixed oral appliance that replaces the portions of missing teeth visible above the gum line. Dr. Swearingen takes an impression of your mouth to replicate the teeth you’ve lost. State-of-the-art technology is used to design them to meet your exact specifications to blend in with your natural teeth.
While the dental lab creates them with precision, your adjacent teeth are reshaped to allow dental crowns to be fitted over them. This provides your bridge with support to withstand regular chewing. Your crowns are made of all-ceramic material to match the appearance of your remaining teeth.
After your bridge and crowns are ready, you’ll return to our dental office to have them placed. With the right care, your fixed bridge will last an average of 7 to 10 years before needing to be replaced.
If you prefer a more permanent solution, Dr. Swearingen can stabilize your smile with dental implants at either end of the bridge. This replaces the entire structure of the missing teeth to make a long-term investment in your smile.
What are the Benefits of a Dental Bridge?
Every tooth is invaluable to your oral health and functions. Even if you just lose one or two teeth, there can be devastating consequences for your smile. A dental bridge can prevent future problems while also providing several other benefits that come along with a complete smile, including:
