About Dental Bridges@headingTag>
A dental bridge fills in the gap between the teeth with a false tooth that is connected to a crown, which is placed over the next tooth. The false tooth attaches to the crown with a pontic. Our dentists provide three main options for bridges at Park Lakes Dental Care in Humble, TX which include, a cantilever bridge that surrounds the attached crown; a Maryland bridge, also known as a resin-bonded bridge that connects the false tooth with wings; or a crown that uses framework bonded to the surrounding natural teeth.

What to Expect@headingTag>
In preparation for the bridge, our dentists will drill down the support tooth to make adequate space for the dental crown. After the teeth are ready for the crown, digital X-rays will be taken so that a thorough visual can be attained and these, as well as the hard impressions will be sent to the dental lab where the permanent bridge is manufactured. Our dentists will cover the individual's teeth with temporary fixtures for protection until the permanent bridge is ready. Once the bridge is ready, our dentists will attach the bridge and realign the fit for a normal look and comfort.
Dental bridges can last for up to 15 years as long as routine dental exams at Park Lakes Dental Care in Humble, TX continue each year.
