Are you looking to enhance your smile with dental bridges in Marietta? Look only as far as John G. Portschy, DDS.

Dental bridges are a popular solution for replacing missing teeth. They are custom-made prosthetic devices that bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. By filling in the gap, dental bridges restore your smile and improve your ability to chew and speak properly.

So, how do dental bridges work? Dental bridges have two or more crowns on either side of the gap, with a false tooth or teeth in between. The crowns are placed on the natural teeth or dental implants adjacent to the opening, supporting the bridge. The false tooth or teeth are then attached to the crowns, creating a seamless and natural-looking smile.

There are several benefits to getting dental bridges. First and foremost, they restore the appearance of your smile, boosting your confidence and self-esteem. Dental bridges also help maintain the shape of your face and prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of position. Additionally, they improve your ability to chew and speak properly, making it easier to enjoy your favorite foods and communicate clearly.

However, it’s also important to consider the drawbacks of dental bridges. They require the alteration of the adjacent teeth to accommodate the crowns, which may weaken them. Dental bridges also require regular maintenance and may need to be replaced over time.

When it comes to the cost of dental bridges, it can vary depending on several factors, including the number of missing teeth, the materials used, and the complexity of the procedure.

Getting dental bridges can involve multiple visits to our dental office. Our dental professionals will evaluate your oral health during the initial consultation and discuss your treatment options. If dental bridges are the right solution for you, we will prepare the adjacent teeth, take impressions or digital scans of your mouth, and send them to a dental laboratory to fabricate your custom bridge. Once the bridge is ready, we will carefully place and adjust it to ensure a comfortable fit.
