Dental Bridges

At Dr. Ryan Trevino’s dental practice, we prioritize your oral health and confidence in your smile. If you’re missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge could be the perfect solution to restore both the function and appearance of your smile.

Do I Need a Dental Bridge?

Wondering if a dental bridge is right for you? It may be an appropriate treatment in the following scenarios:

Missing Teeth

If you have one or more missing teeth, a dental bridge can effectively fill the gap and restore your smile's completeness.

Difficulty Chewing or Speaking

Missing teeth can make it challenging to chew your food properly or speak clearly. A dental bridge can restore your ability to eat and speak comfortably.

Preventing Shifting

When teeth are missing, surrounding teeth may shift out of alignment over time. A dental bridge helps maintain the proper alignment of your smile, preventing further dental issues.

Aesthetic Concerns

If you're self-conscious about gaps in your smile, a dental bridge can enhance your appearance and boost your confidence.

How It Works

Ready to restore your smile with a dental bridge? Here’s what to expect:

Consultation

Schedule a consultation with Dr. Trevino to discuss your oral health concerns and determine if a dental bridge is the right solution for you.

Preparation

If a dental bridge is recommended, Dr. Trevino will prepare the teeth adjacent to the gap by reshaping them to accommodate dental crowns. If implants are necessary, he will discuss this option with you.

Impression

A digital impression of your teeth and the gap will be taken to create a custom-fit dental bridge that perfectly matches your smile. At our practice, we utilize state-of-the-art 3D scanning technology — no messy impression materials required.

Fabrication

Using CEREC technology, we can craft your bridge in-house using high-quality materials, ensuring durability and a natural appearance.

Placement

Once your bridge is ready, Dr. Trevino will carefully bond or cement it onto the prepared teeth or attach it to the implants, effectively filling in the gap left by missing teeth.

Final Adjustments

Dr. Trevino will make any necessary adjustments to ensure your bridge fits comfortably and functions properly, allowing you to enjoy your new smile with confidence.

Types of Dental Bridges

Not all dental bridges are the same. Here are the main types available, depending on the situation:

Traditional Fixed Bridges

These bridges consist of “pontics” held in place by dental crowns placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap.

Cantilever Bridges

Suitable for cases with only one adjacent tooth, a cantilever bridge utilizes a single dental crown to support the pontic.

Maryland Bridges

Also known as resin-bonded bridges, Maryland bridges use minimal preparation and are bonded to the back of adjacent teeth for support.
