If you’ve lost a tooth, our emergency dentist may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile. Like the name suggests, a dental bridge “bridges” the gap in your smile left by a missing tooth.
To learn if you’re a candidate for a tooth bridge, schedule emergency dental care as soon as today.
We are here to help with your dental emergency.
Benefits Of Dental Bridges
A dental bridge is comprised of a false tooth anchored in place by crowns on both sides. To prepare your teeth for the dental bridge procedure, our dentist will need to remove enamel from adjacent teeth so the crowns can fit over top. We’ll then take impressions of your teeth to send to the lab. It’ll take several weeks for your tooth restoration to be made, which is why we’ll fit a temporary dental bridge to protect your smile in the meantime.
Our emergency dentist will make sure the bridgework is the right color, shape and size!
When you return for your second appointment, your permanent dental bridge will be ready. Our emergency dentist will make sure the bridgework is the right color, shape, and size so it looks natural with the rest of your smile. Unlike partial dentures, you don’t have to worry about your tooth bridge slipping out of place because it is anchored by surrounding teeth.
Dr. Lebster DDS will be able to explain your options for emergency dental care (including dental bridges) during your appointment. To schedule a time to see our Holland emergency dentist, call RediDental Emergency Dental Care at (616) 796-3200.
