At Hastings Family Dental, we understand the importance of a complete smile — not just for aesthetic reasons but for overall oral health and function. Dental bridges are a key solution we offer for replacing missing teeth, bridging the gap and restoring your smile to its full glory. Crafted from high-quality materials that mimic the appearance and strength of natural teeth, dental bridges are designed to seamlessly integrate with your existing dentition.

The dental bridge process involves a few key steps:

  • Initial Consultation: We assess your oral health and discuss the best type of bridge for your specific needs.
  • Preparation: Adjacent teeth are prepared to serve as anchors (abutments) for the bridge. This may involve reshaping these teeth to ensure a proper fit.
  • Impression and Fabrication: Impressions of your teeth are taken to create a custom bridge that fits perfectly in the gap. While your permanent bridge is being made, a temporary bridge may be placed.
  • Fitting and Adjustment: Once your dental bridge is ready, our dentists will carefully fit and adjust it to ensure comfort and proper bite alignment.
  • Final Cementing: The bridge is cemented into place, fully restoring the appearance and functionality of your missing teeth.

Benefits of choosing a dental bridge include:

  • Restored smile and improved appearance
  • Enhanced ability to chew and speak properly
  • Prevention of remaining teeth from drifting out of position
  • Maintenance of facial shape and prevention of premature aging
  • Durable and long-lasting solution for missing teeth
