When it comes to addressing the issue of missing teeth, dental bridges are a cornerstone of our restorative dental services.

A dental bridge is a custom-crafted solution for missing teeth, consisting of one or more false teeth, known as pontics. These pontics are anchored securely on either side by dental crowns, which are placed on the natural teeth or implants adjacent to the gap. This creates a literal “bridge” over the spaces in your mouth. The materials for pontics range from porcelain, gold, alloys or combinations thereof, chosen carefully to match the natural color and strength of your teeth, ensuring a seamless integration into your smile.

Embarking on the journey to a complete smile with a dental bridge involves a detailed and compassionate process. Initially, you will visit our dentist for a comprehensive consultation and preparation of the adjacent teeth, which may include reshaping them to ensure the best fit for the crowns. Impressions of your teeth are then taken, serving as a model from which your bespoke bridge will be crafted. Dr. Tomas de Bruin will then place the custom-made bridge, meticulously adjusting it for comfort and functionality, ensuring it feels just like part of your natural smile.

Opting for a dental bridge in Reno, Nevada, is more than just an aesthetic choice; it is a step towards restoring your oral functionality and preventing future dental issues. A bridge not only fills the gap in your smile but also improves your ability to chew and speak, preserves the natural contour of your face and distributes bite forces evenly. Moreover, it prevents the remaining teeth from shifting, which could lead to a misaligned bite and other complications.

In our practice, we cherish the opportunity to bring smiles back to their fullest potential. Dental bridges, with their blend of aesthetic appeal and functional support, are a testament to our commitment to your oral health and happiness. Our team is eager to guide you through the process, answering your questions and ensuring you feel at home every step of the way. Call us at 775-826-1838 today.
