What your dentist in Vallejo wants you to know

You may know someone who has dental bridgework and you may be wondering if dental bridges can help your smile. The short answer is, YES! Today’s dental bridgework can give you the strength you need for chewing, and can also give you a smile you will love. Modern dental bridgework is natural-looking and beautiful. Dr. David Gordon in Vallejo, CA, wants to help you discover the magic of dental bridges and how they can help your smile.

Dental bridge work has become the state-of-the-art solution to tooth replacement. Thanks to high-tech materials and revolutionary techniques, bridges can restore your entire smile, complimenting your appearance.

Dental bridges at your Vallejo, CA, dentist, is known as fixed partial dentures and can be designed to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. They consist of one or more prosthetic teeth, called pontics, which replace your missing teeth. The pontics are secured on both sides by adjacent teeth which are restored to support the bridge.

There are many reasons why people choose fixed bridgework instead of removable partials. Dr. Gordon wants you to know, bridges are often better because:

  • They look more natural, and can add beauty to your smile
  • They are strong, helping to restore your ability to chew
  • They don’t move around when you speak or eat, unlike removable partials

Your dental bridge will require at least two appointments with Dr. Gordon. The first appointment is to prepare the supporting teeth and take models of your teeth. The models are sent off to a dental laboratory where highly skilled technicians create your bridge. At your second appointment, Dr. Gordon will cement your new bridge and you can enjoy your beautiful, new smile.

Dental bridges are a great solution for just about everyone. Thanks to dental bridges, you don’t have to just live with an incomplete smile or with decreased chewing ability. It’s time to stop being embarrassed by your smile. It’s time to call Dr. Gordon in Vallejo, CA. Start working on your best smile by calling today!
