Want to fill and restore the full function of your smile? Fix it with a dental bridge! If you have a gap in your smile that is causing dental issues and you don’t like the look of, our dental staff here in Pembroke Pines, Florida is happy to help you restore it. A dental bridge is one of the best options to fix the gap in your mouth, return the functions of your jaw and mouth, and improve the shape and volume of your face. By filling in the empty space, you not only regain functions such as the way you eat and chew, and the way you speak, but you also relieve the stress on your jaw joints, and enhance the motion of your jaw.

Our dental professionals will consider the three different bridge approaches used for a dental bridge placement and determine the best course of treatment for you and your smile. These options use individually implants, natural teeth, crowns, and/or a combination. This includes a cantilever (an artificial tooth is connected to a crown), a traditional (when the crowns are connected to both surrounding teeth), or a Maryland (when an artificial tooth is bonded to the surrounding teeth).

Dental bridges can be made with a mixture of different materials such as porcelain or alloys, or even both. To get the best fit, an impression of your teeth is first made and then a dental crown is placed on each natural tooth surrounding the space-this will hold the dental bridge in place. This procedure may take up to two visits while waiting for the replacement bridge to be made.

Dr. Rafah Abdelmonem will place your dental bridge in place after it is made. You may need to return to the office here in Pembroke Pines, Florida, to ensure it fits well and is comfortable.
