Dental Bridges
San Antonio, TX

If you are missing some of your teeth, we can replace them using a dental bridge. This is a secure and permanent alternative to wearing dentures. We can work to make a dental bridge look entirely natural after we place it on your teeth. We begin the procedure by taking precise measurements of your teeth in our dentist office. We will also take an impression, so the dental lab has all the information they need to create replacement teeth that look like your natural ones. To find out if you are a good candidate for the procedure, call (210) 255-2596 and schedule a consultation. At Preferred Dental Center, we offer several solutions for replacing missing teeth, so if a bridge is not suited to your needs, we will recommend a different solution.

Will my dental bridge look natural?

Absolutely. At Preferred Dental Center, we will take every step necessary to ensure they look natural and fit perfectly. We begin by taking accurate measurements and also matching the shade of your prosthetic with your surrounding natural teeth. If your other teeth are stained or yellow, now is an excellent time to whiten them since we will create your new teeth using materials that are both resistant to stain and bleach.

How long does a dental bridge last?

The duration of a dental bridge is different for everyone and is impacted by your daily habits. However, fixed dental bridges can last for 15 years or even longer. On the short end, they tend to last for five years. One thing to keep in mind is that the overall health of your mouth will influence the longevity of your bridge. Since the natural teeth with dental crowns determine the stability of the bridge, you must keep your natural teeth healthy. We recommend you do so by visiting our San Antonio, TX dental office for a teeth cleaning and dental examination twice a year. We can remove built-up plaque to prevent decay and infections. If you develop any oral health problems, we will address them immediately. We will prevent the problems from spreading do not spread and your mouth can remain in excellent health.

What can I expect from the procedure?

When you visit our dentist office for a dental bridge, we will begin by conducting an examination and taking X-rays. We need to determine whether your remaining teeth are strong enough to support a bridge. We also need to make sure you do not have any decay or infections. If you do, we will treat the problem before placing your bridge. Afterward, we will prepare your abutment teeth for the placing of dental crowns. We remove a small portion of the enamel from around the teeth. Next, we will take measurements, make an impression, and use a shade card to determine what shade your new teeth need to be. This information will all be sent to the dental lab to create your new crowns and bridge. In the meantime, we will place a temporary bridge in your mouth. This will not look as good or be as secure as the final product, but it will preserve your appearance while you wait.

Once your new bridge is ready, you will need to come back to our San Antonio, TX dentist office so we can remove the temporary bridge and bond the new one in place in place. We may need to make some minor adjustments during the fitting process and will do what is necessary to ensure that it fits correctly, is comfortable, and looks natural. Taking the time to do so will help you to enjoy your new teeth now and in the future.

Will getting a dental bridge be uncomfortable?

At Preferred Dental Center, we can provide you with anesthesia to help you remain comfortable while getting your new dental bridge. The only time anesthesia may be necessary is when we are preparing your teeth or when we are securing your bridge in place. Feel free to let us know how you are feeling about the procedure and will help you to relax.

Dr. Biaggi was amazing. Dr. Biaggi came highly recommended by a great friend of mine. My anxiety kicked in during my visit and Dr. Biaggi calmed me down and walked me thru the root canal, which clearly showed the compassion and love he has to perform his best at what he loves to do, he had me calm my breathing which stopped my anxiety and fear of the dentist as a child and an adult has changed since my visit with Dr. Biaggi. I recommend Preferred Dental Center.
