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!

Patients in Vallejo Seek Dental Bridges for Restored Smiles
To understand dental bridges, you need only understand the function of a classic bridge on the road — it is connected to two supporting structures. In the same way, a dental bridge is an artificial tooth, or teeth, that is kept in place by the two adjacent supporting teeth (also called “abutment” teeth). The bridge is bonded to the abutment teeth and can last for years in place of the original tooth.Dental Bridges Restore Smile Vallejo, CA

You may wonder if a bridge is right for your specific dental problem. By consulting Vallejo dental bridges dentist Dr. David M. Gordon about it first you can take the next step toward a restored smile. The ideal case for patients is one where the patient has a missing tooth between two strong, healthy teeth.

A bridge is a relatively quick, simple and affordable solution for someone who has a missing tooth that’s causing problems with eating, speaking or feeling comfortable in social situations. Many people live with missing teeth, but in some cases the space causes the rest of the teeth to shift out of place, creating cosmetic and positioning issues. The location of the missing tooth is also a consideration — most people don’t want to have a large space in the front the mouth.
