Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are one way to replace missing teeth. Your existing teeth are used to literally create a bridge to cross the area where your tooth is missing. Bridges are made from gold, metal, alloys, or porcelain and are very strong and durable.

We begin creating your bridge by creating abutments out of your existing teeth where the bridge will be attached. The existing teeth are shaped to provide a base for your bridge. Then we take a mold of the area and send it off to the lab so they can craft your bridge. The mold helps to create the exact fit we are looking for.

While the lab crafts your permanent bridge we will set you up with a temporary bridge. This will help protect your mouth and gums and will look better than having a missing tooth. When the bridge is completed and available for placement you will be called back and it will be installed.

Having something new in your mouth will take time to get used to, but that is normal. Soon you wont even notice it. Right after you have your bridge placed try to eat soft foods for the next few days. After that eat as you normally would, you should have no problems.

Dr. Falona Glenn and Dr Gerald Glenn place bridges as well as crowns and perform extractions in Aurora Colorado.
