Dental bridges are dental restorations that are used to bridge the gaps in your teeth causing from missing teeth. Although dental implants are the most ideal solution for missing teeth, they can be quite costly and not every patient is a good candidate for the treatment. Dental bridges are the next best solution following dental implants. The bridge consists of a series of dental crowns that are anchored by means of metal supports attached to adjacent teeth next to the gap.
To create your dental bridge in Birmingham, Dr. Maniscalco will take impressions of your teeth to send to the lab. The lab will create your bridge to match the color and shape of your natural teeth so that the restoration looks completely natural. Once it returns form the lab, Dr. Maniscalco will check to make sure it looks good before installing it permanently to your teeth. Following your treatment, your smile will no longer have gaps and you will be able to chew and bite properly once again.
Although we recommend dental implants, it’s not always in everyone’s budget. In some cases, patients are not good candidates.
