Dental Bridges in Bakersfield, CA
A dental bridge can be an excellent way to replace missing teeth. There are several types of bridges, with the most popular being a “traditional” type made out porcelain and metal that covers two crowns attached at either end by anchors or abutment teeth also called pontics which fill in for those who have more trouble chewing due their lack therefrom; it gives you something solid while letting your gums heal on its own without pain!
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last for many years, but they may need to be replaced or re-cemented because of normal wear.

- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill the space of missing teeth.
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
- Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.

What does getting a fixed bridge involve?
Usually, a bridge requires two visits. The first time is to numb your teeth and prepare the anchorages with an impression (mold) that will be sent off for fabrication of this temporary appliance at our dental laboratory until you next come in again after it’s done!
The second visit happens when all goes according-to plan: We remove some enamel from around these prepared pieces so they can hold Crowns properly; then place them back onto their respective sockets just enough so we have something sturdy but comfortable until her final cementing appointment near term.
You will receive care instructions after the procedure to help you keep your new permanent bridge healthy and beautiful. proper brushing, flossing or regular dental visits are important for maintaining this amazing product!
