Bridging The Gap

bridging the gap

Do you have a missing tooth that is detracting from your otherwise beautiful teeth? A dental bridge from dentist near you could be the perfect solution for your missing tooth and help you chew and speak properly.

A bridge incorporates two or more crowns on either side of the gap created by your missing tooth. These two anchoring teeth allow a false tooth to be held in place where the missing tooth should be. The false tooth is called a pontic. Bridges can contain one or more pontics. A pontic can be matched to the surrounding teeth if you select a porcelain material. If you’d like, a pontic can also be constructed using gold or an alloy.

We will work closely with you to be sure that your bridge has a precise fit. Then one of our skilled hygienists will show you how to clean under and around the bridge to ensure that no dental caries occur in the nooks and crannies.

At Wetaskiwin Family Dental in Wetaskiwin, dental bridges are one of our restorative dentistry procedures. Call us to schedule an appointment today.
