Your NW Calgary Choice for
Dental Bridges!

If you have a gap in your mouth due to a missing tooth and are self-conscious because others can see it when you smile, Dental Bridges may help. At Toothville Family Dentistry, we may have the perfect solution for you in a fixed dental bridge, which is a dental restoration alternative to dental implants or dentures for replacing missing teeth. Give us a call and we’ll be happy to schedule an appointment for you so we can take a look at the space and recommend treatment options.

What is a
Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is a false tooth that uses abutment teeth to act as an anchor for a restoration that will fill the missing space. It is made up of two crowns on either side of the missing tooth, connected to an artificial tooth, called a pontic, in the middle. These three “teeth” form the “bridge” that is matched to the colour of your teeth and then cemented into place to provide a permanent solution to your missing tooth dilemma!

Reasons for a Bridge:

  • Fills space of missing teeth
  • Prevents remaining teeth from drifting out of their correct position
  • Maintains facial shape (affected by missing teeth)
  • Restores ability to properly chew
  • Restores speech and pronunciation
  • Restores the aesthetic look of your smile
  • Upgrades from a removable partial denture, to a permanent dental appliance

What is the Toothville Family Dentistry
Dental Bridge Procedure?

First, your Toothville dentist has to examine your mouth and the areas around the missing tooth to determine whether a dental bridge is appropriate for your situation.

If you are a good candidate for a bridge, the teeth that are on either side of the missing tooth – the ones that will provide the “anchors” for the bridge – will be prepped for crowns.

An impression is taken so that the bridge will fit exactly into the space and blend perfectly with your existing teeth. The first visit ends with the insertion of a temporary bridge to protect the area until the permanent bridge is ready.

At your next and final visit, the permanent bridge is cemented into place and you’re all set! If you take care to practice good oral hygiene and maintain your proper dental cleaning and examination schedule, your new bridge should last for a good many years, providing you with a winning smile and a gigantic confidence boost!
