With a dental bridge for tooth replacement, you can love your new Discovery Bay, CA smile

For many decades, dentistry’s response to tooth damage or loss has been repair with dental crowns and bridges. Since the early days of dentistry, significant advancements have changed the way that treatment is provided. Innovative new materials have led to greater success in treatment. Advanced techniques in fabrication allow more durability. At Brentwood Family Dental, whether a bridge or crown is recommended for tooth repair or replacement, our patients from Discovery Bay, CA and surrounding cities benefit from our expertise and experience.

Crowns, also called “caps,” are tooth covers that protect natural tooth structure that has been damaged or weakened by large cavities, physical injury, or root canal treatment. A dental bridge, which may incorporate crowns, is a standard form of tooth replacement. As it sounds, a bridge spans the gap that is left by tooth loss. Whether this empty space is present in the back of the mouth, or near the front, where it is visible in the smile, proper replacement is necessary for sustained oral health and function.

Placing a dental bridge prevents the shifting of surrounding teeth, and restores full function for chewing. Aesthetics are important, as well, and a bridge will ensure that you remain confident in the appearance of your smile.

The process of smile correction with a dental bridge is made easy with our experienced team. First, we prepare the teeth that will serve as anchors for the bridge. We then make an impression of the area, so that a custom-fitted appliance can be made. This appliance will include two dental crowns, fabricated from high quality zirconium, and an artificial tooth or teeth, depending on the size of the gap. Dr. Alkhoury takes a great deal of care in the design process, understanding that the longevity of the restoration is tied to the accuracy of fit. During a subsequent office visit, the permanent bridge is secured into place, where it will remain for many years.

Advances in dental technology have made it possible to replace missing teeth permanently with the use of biocompatible dental implants. Implants are inserted into the jawbone, where they will become a permanent fixture in the jaw. This technology may be incorporated into dental bridge treatment for the ultimate in stable tooth replacement.

We are experts in restoring function and beauty to smiles. If you’re wondering about the best form of tooth replacement for your situation, we can help. Contact Brentwood Family Dental for your appointment today.
