Bridges in Reno
By taking the support of the neighboring teeth, a dental bridge connects them and completes the gap left by a broken tooth. A lot depends on the condition of these support teeth as they have to act as a strong base for the restoration. Once it is determined that they are healthy enough to provide support, the process of attaching the dental bridge can be started.
After scanning the teeth through x-ray and conducting further diagnosis, Dr. Tom de Bruin will take an impression to know the exact space available to work with and to get a good measure of the shape and structure of surrounding teeth. This will help in preparing a restoration which is perfect fit.
While the final product is being prepared in the lab, you will be fixed with a temporary restoration, so that you can get used to it and you do not have to live with a gap in your smile for that duration.
Fixed with the help of a powerful adhesive, this conventional dental restoration can stay put for a long time if good care is taken. At the end of the procedure, you will have natural looking teeth, which not only enhances the look of your smile but also help retain the biting strength.
