Restorative Dental Bridges At Modern Dental Care

Are you feeling self-conscious over missing teeth and gaps in your smile? Restorative dental bridges might be the answer you have been looking for. At Modern Dental Care, we understand that tooth loss can happen for several reasons. Our team is fully committed to offering the best solution with dental bridges in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Dental bridges in our Las Vegas, NV office are made with premium porcelain or zirconia material. When choosing a material for porcelain bridge restoration, your dentist will consider both strength & aesthetics. Our top-rated dentists always choose strong metal-free options (with few exceptions). Call us today to schedule a consultation and discuss the best options for your smile.

We can carefully extract the infected tooth under local anesthesia if there is an infected or missing tooth. A temporary bridge can be placed while healing so you leave our office with confidence in your smile.

Bridges in the smile zone are made with Elite layered porcelain to create a beautiful natural look. The look of a bridge in the smile zone is highly dependent on the dentist’s skills and the lab’s quality. Modern Dental Care has a cosmetic focus and always recommends upscale lab work for front teeth. We make perfect 10 smiles.

What Are Dental Bridges Used For?

Dental bridges are necessary for many patients with missing teeth or gaps in their smile, not just for general appearance. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a poor bite. Here at Modern Dental Care, we will offer the best means of improving your smile by filling in gaps or replacing missing teeth. In addition to shifting teeth, gaps from missing teeth can also cause temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), speech impediments, an increased risk for periodontal disease, and a greater chance of tooth decay.

What Is The Treatment Process Like?

Bridges are fixed and cemented to the natural tooth surrounding the space where the tooth/teeth are missing. These teeth or “abutments” serve as anchors for the bridge. A replacement tooth or “pontic” is attached to the crowns that cover the abutments. Like dental crowns, there are several materials patients can choose from for bridges.

Porcelain or ceramic bridges can be matched almost exactly to the color of your teeth. We can apply a cantilever bridge in areas under less stress, such as the front of your teeth. These bridges are used when there are teeth on just one side of the open space.

Our team at Modern Dental Care will fully advise each patient and help decide the most appropriate treatment based on the location of the missing tooth, aesthetic consideration, and cost.
