If you currently have a gap in your smile because of missing teeth, and no longer smile with confidence, there is help. More importantly, missing teeth can negatively affect your oral health as well as your smile’s appearance. Today we are going to review the benefits of a dental bridge as a viable restoration option for missing teeth to help you smile, speak and chew with renewed confidence. 

Our dental bridges in Greenville, South Carolina, replace missing teeth which are attached to a dental crown on each side. When a dental bridge is installed in your mouth, it will anchor onto the neighboring teeth to effectively fill the gap in your smile. To receive a dental bridge usually requires two appointments to implement. Let’s take a look!

So, at the first appointment, Dr. James Meyer will numb your mouth to make sure you are comfortable. Next, he will shave a part of the neighboring teeth to get them ready for the bridge installation. When the teeth are sized perfectly, Dr. James Meyer will make an impression of the teeth and surrounding area to be sent to a dental lab.

Meanwhile, while you wait for your bridge to be created, you will receive temporary dental crowns for those neighboring teeth. When your bridge is ready to install, you will come in for a second appointment to have it cemented over the teeth, and then your new smile will be completed!

To learn more about how a dental bridge can bring back your confident smile, please call Meyer Dentistry at 864-213-4442 or schedule an appointment. Dr. James Meyer and our entire team look forward to helping you achieve the smile you deserve!
