Dental bridges are custom restorations that replace missing teeth. They consist of artificial teeth anchored by neighboring natural teeth or dental implants. Bridges restore your smile’s appearance, enhance your chewing function, and maintain your dental health.
Dental bridges work by bridging the gap left by your missing teeth. Artificial teeth are anchored to adjacent natural teeth or implants. The supporting teeth act as sturdy pillars, holding the bridge in place. This restores your smile, helps maintain proper oral function, and prevents neighboring teeth from shifting out of position.
A typical candidate for dental bridges has one or more missing teeth but healthy neighboring teeth or dental implants. Good oral health, adequate bone support, and stable adjacent teeth make an ideal candidate for dental bridges.
After a thorough assessment, your dentist prepares your neighboring teeth to support the bridge. Impressions are taken and sent to a dental lab for bridge fabrication. A temporary bridge is placed, and on your next visit, the custom bridge is bonded, restoring your smile and bite.
Created in Treatment
Bridges are natural-looking dental appliances that can replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth.
There are several types of fixed dental bridges (cannot be removed), including conventional fixed bridges, cantilever bridges and resin-bonded bridges. Some bridges are removable and can be cleaned by the wearer; others need to be removed by a dentist.
Porcelain, gold alloys or combinations of materials are usually used to make bridge appliances.
Appliances called implant bridges are attached to an area below the gum tissue, or the bone.
I had the pleasure of visiting Dr.Zaim’ dental practice for a filling, and I must say, it was an incredibly painless and pleasant experience! Dr. Zaim is not only highly knowledgeably and experienced, but she also has a warm and very friendly demeanor that instantly puts you at ease. Her staff members are equally kind and accommodating, making the overall visit a truly positive one.
I've never met a dentist who is more thorough in her exam and caring in her approach to dentistry than Dr.Sheema Zaim. I had a fantastic experience at her office .The staff was friendly and professional, making me feel comfortable from the start. The care and expertise I received for cleaning, extraction, whitening, and crown procedures were exceptional. Dr.Sheema Zaim and her team consistently exceed expectations. Highly recommended for their outstanding care and long-term trust.
Great office with a friendly staff. Dr Zaim is very nice and kind. She shares with you the treatment plan and asks about your opinion unlike other dentists I’ve had in the past who get things done fast and move on. She takes her time and has great peoples skills. She is very knowledgeable and thoughtful. Will highly recommend her to anyone!
Grace runs a small, comfortable dentist office and treated us like people instead of numbers. I get the impression that she would be a great dentist for someone without insurance, because she doesn't like working with insurance companies. Just my impression, but for what it's worth. She's good with kids and very friendly.
High quality cosmetic and general dentistry - small, family operated. Usually booked up with appointments at least a few weeks out.
