Dental Bridges

in Scarborough

HAVENVIEW DENTAL DENTAL BRIDGES

When you have gaps between your teeth caused by extraction, injury or other tooth loss, your other teeth may start to move sideways into the spaces provided by the gaps. Unless you fill those gaps with some form of artificial tooth, your natural teeth can get loose when this happens and eventually fall out. Dental bridges are one of the ways the best dentist in Scarborough can help you support your mouth’s structure and avoid future problems.

What Are Dental Bridges

What Are Dental Bridges

A bridge is a permanent, custom-made device that spans gaps where you have lost teeth. It stays in place by being connected either to dental implants, or to the teeth on either side of the gap. The artificial teeth that support your mouth are fastened to the bridge, so they don’t need to be taken out of your mouth for any reason. You can choose between several different types of material for a bridge, but porcelain matches your other natural teeth best.

Reasons to Get a Dental Bridge

The biggest reason to get a dental bridge is to save the other teeth surrounding a gap. If you don’t support the bone and tissue properly, a number of things can happen:

  • The teeth opposite the gap might overgrow into the space, leaving you with a couple of extra-long teeth.
  • Where the teeth are missing, your jaw bone might shrink.
  • If the jaw gets out of alignment, it can affect your bite and put more stress on your teeth and the joints of your jaw.
  • The stress can cause you pain, as well as causing some of your teeth to fracture or chip.

Any of these problems increases your risk of developing tooth decay or gum disease, which can affect your overall health. You can see there are a lot of reasons to replace missing teeth, and the best dentist in Scarborough can fit you with a dental bridge that does so.

Reasons To Get A Dental Bridge

Getting Fitted with a Dental Bridge

Your dentist will first prepare your mouth by deciding whether to mount your bridge on existing teeth or implants. If he recommends existing teeth, these have to be prepared to accept the appliance. He will take impressions of the teeth and send them to a trusted dental laboratory technician, who will take approximately two weeks to make the bridge with artificial teeth on it. On your return, the best dentist in Scarborough will fit it into your mouth, check your bite, and, when it’s correct, cement the bridge to your teeth on either side.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

Getting accustomed to your new bridge should only take you a few days to a week, during which time you should stick to eating softer foods. After a week, you will be able to speak easily, smile with confidence, and go back to eating all your favourite foods. Additional benefits of a dental bridge are:

  • It restores your smile and confidence
  • You can bite, chew and speak properly again
  • It supports the shape of your face
  • It keeps your bite aligned and working well
  • It prevents your remaining teeth from drifting out of position or getting loose.

In general, a dental bridge improves your appearance and help you to stay healthy, while being fairly quick and painless to get. You won’t have to have major surgery or wear loose, unsightly partial dentures that don’t match your own teeth.

Your Questions Answered by the Best Dentist in Scarborough

Dental bridges in Scarborough can be used to replace anything from a single tooth to four or more teeth. Most treatments replace just two teeth. Your case will be evaluated to determine the best method of restoration.

In cases where you have several teeth missing along the arch, dental implants with dental bridges in Scarborough can be recommended. Implants are placed to allow for better distribution of pressure from your bite, allowing for the bridges to be stable and long-lasting. It’s better to have two bridge units when replacing several teeth along the arch, using implants to support them.

Dental bridges aren’t permanent but they are functionally similar to permanent teeth. High-quality bridges in Scarborough can last between seven and fifteen years with regular care and checkups.

Most dental bridges are made using one of three materials. Your choice of material can influence the cost of having dental bridges in Scarborough. The material comes down to more than just preference. Dr. Lee and Dr. Eng may recommend a specific material based upon the condition of your teeth and gums and where the bridges will be placed.

  • Metal bridges are made with a biocompatible metal core with ceramic layered on top to recreate the look of a natural tooth. These are the most affordable types of dental bridges in Scarborough.
  • Gold bridges are durable and long-lasting. The ceramic is alloyed on top of the precious metal to create a natural look.
  • Zirconia bridges are the costliest but they’re also the most esthetic option. Zirconia is an advanced ceramic compound that provides excellent strength and durability. With built-up layers, zirconia can be perfectly shade-matched to natural teeth. Monolithic zirconia (solid block) can be used for posterior (back) teeth where the esthetic isn’t as critical.

At Havenview Dental Centre all of your options will be explained in detail so that you can make the best decision for your needs. Dr. Lee and Dr. Eng are experts in all types of dental bridges in Scarborough.

Bridges are a solution for treating tooth loss and advanced decay where one or several teeth can’t be saved. Implants perform a similar role, serving to replace lost or heavily damaged teeth.

Implants are more durable and longer-lasting than bridges but they are also more costly and there can be a long recovery time involved in the implant procedure. Some bridges need implants for support, such as when you are replacing a long row of teeth with several bridge units.

There’s no simple answer to this question as it depends entirely upon your unique case. Book your appointment at Havenview Dental Centre today to begin your consultation and discover which treatment would best suit your needs.

Dental bridge costs are covered by insurance in some cases. Exactly how much coverage you will receive depends on your policy. Some policies don’t cover tooth replacement at all, while many will cover 50%-80%. Lab costs (to fabricate bridges and crowns) aren’t always covered by the policy.

Talk to your insurance provider or review your policy to learn what is covered in your specific package. If you don’t have insurance, we will be happy to work out a suitable payment plan so that you can get the dental bridges in Scarborough that you need for optimal oral health.
