Dental Bridges in Murfreesboro, TN
Do you feel like anyone is staring at is that gap between your teeth? Do you want the smile you’ve always desired and so deserve? At Ricafort Dental Group, our dentist near you provides several cosmetic dental options, including dental bridges. Dental bridges near you can be used to close any gaps between your teeth. A dental bridge is really just a false tooth, called a pontic, that is placed inside the gap and supported by teeth on each side of the gap. Pontics appear as your teeth’s natural color and are made of porcelain or gold.
Types of Dental Bridges
At Ricafort Dental Group, our dentist in Murfreesboro, TN offers a variety of dental bridges such as traditional dental bridges, Cantilever dental bridges, implant-supported dental bridges, and Maryland dental bridges.
Traditional Dental Bridges
Traditional dental bridges are very popular, if not the most popular type of dental bridge. Made of false teeth, they are held in place by dental crowns that are cemented onto your natural teeth on each side of your gap.
Cantilever Dental Bridges
Cantilever dental bridges are supported by a dental crown that is cemented onto just one adjacent natural tooth.
Implant-Supported Dental Bridges
Implant-supported dental bridges use dental implants rather than frameworks or crowns for support and strength.
Maryland Dental Bridges
Maryland dental bridges, like traditional bridges, are held in place by your natural teeth on both sides of your gap. These bridges use a metal or porcelain framework that is bonded onto the backs of your teeth on both sides of your gap.
What You Should Expect During Dental Bridge Placement
At Ricafort Dental Group, Dr. Erwin M. Ricafort can often times make your bridge in one day. Dr. Erwin M. Ricafort will get digital impressions of your teeth and mill your bridge in office. At the end of the milling process your bridge will be ready to be placed and permanently seated. You won’t need a temporary bridge or return to the office for another appointment to seat the bridge.
