Welcome to Holmes Dental, your trusted family dental practice dedicated to providing comprehensive dental care. We’re happy to offer dental bridges, a reliable and effective solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring your smile. Our experienced dental team utilizes advanced techniques to create custom bridges that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, improving both aesthetics and functionality.

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are prosthetic devices used to bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. At Holmes Dental, we offer various types of bridges, including traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, and implant-supported bridges. These bridges are designed to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking restoration.

The benefits of dental bridges are numerous. By filling the gap left by missing teeth, bridges restore proper bite alignment, allowing you to chew and speak comfortably. They also prevent adjacent teeth from shifting, which can lead to bite problems and further tooth loss. Additionally, dental bridges enhance your smile, restoring facial harmony and boosting your self-confidence.

The Dental Bridge Procedure

Getting a dental bridge at Holmes Dental involves a step-by-step process to ensure the best results. It begins with an initial consultation and examination, during which our dental team evaluates your oral health, discusses treatment options, and creates a personalized plan tailored to your needs.

Next, the adjacent teeth, called abutment teeth, are prepared by removing a small portion of enamel to make room for the bridge. Precise impressions of your teeth are then taken, which serve as a blueprint for creating a temporary bridge while the permanent one is fabricated in our dental lab. Our skilled technicians meticulously craft a custom bridge that matches the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking restoration.

Once the permanent bridge is ready, it is carefully placed, adjusted for fit and bite, and permanently bonded to the abutment teeth. Our dental team takes great care to ensure that the bridge blends in harmoniously with your existing teeth, providing you with a comfortable and functional restoration.

Caring for Your Dental Bridge

Proper care and maintenance of your dental bridge are essential for its longevity and functionality. Regular oral hygiene practices, such as brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and using an antiseptic mouthwash, help keep your bridge and gums clean and free from plaque and bacteria.

A balanced diet that avoids sticky or hard foods will prevent damage to your bridge. Additionally, practicing good chewing habits will help distribute the forces evenly and minimize stress on the bridge. Regular dental visits are also crucial, as they allow our dental team to monitor the condition of your bridge, perform necessary cleanings, and address any issues promptly.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

Choosing dental bridges offers numerous benefits for patients. With a dental bridge, you can regain the functionality of your natural teeth, allowing you to eat and speak comfortably. Bridges also improve the aesthetics of your smile by filling the gaps left by missing teeth, restoring facial harmony, and boosting your self-confidence.

Furthermore, dental bridges prevent adjacent teeth from shifting, reducing the risk of gum disease, decay, and bite problems. By maintaining proper alignment, bridges contribute to the overall health and stability of your remaining teeth.

Is a Dental Bridge Right for You?

If you are experiencing missing teeth, gaps between your teeth, or difficulties with biting or speaking, dental bridges may be the ideal solution for your dental needs. During a consultation at Holmes Dental, our dental team will assess your specific case, taking into consideration your oral health, lifestyle, and preferences.
