About Dental Bridges@headingTag>
A bridge closes in the opening between the teeth with a porcelain tooth that is attached to a crown, which is created to form over the attaching tooth. The fake tooth connects to the crown with a pontic. Our dentists offer several options for bridges at DentalWorks - Lexington in Lexington, NC including, a cantilever bridge that covers the connected crown; a Maryland bridge, referred to as a resin-bonded bridge that attaches the fake tooth with extensions; or a crown that incorporates framework cemented to the nearby natural teeth.

What to Expect@headingTag>
To prepare the teeth for the bridge, our dentists will file down the abutment tooth to establish enough room for the crown. Once the teeth are prepared for the crown, X-ray imaging will be made so that a full visual can be achieved and these, along with the physical impressions will then be distributed to the lab where the final bridge is manufactured. Our dentists will fit the patient's teeth with temporary coverings for protection until the final bridge is ready. When the bridge is created, our dentists will secure the bridge and adjust the fit for a natural appearance and comfort.
