Fixed Bridges

The Challenge: "D." was concerned about an upper front tooth which had become very discolored and loose due to a traumatic injury which had happened long ago. The trauma left this tooth hopelessly damaged and in need of extraction. "D." also had developed a gap between his front teeth that he disliked. "D." wanted a result that did not require the removal of a dental appliance. He wanted a "permanent" result. The Solution: After the extraction of the un-restorable dark tooth, I placed a transitional (temporary) bridge over "D.'s" teeth.

The transitional bridge is used to allow the gum tissue to heal properly prior to placement of the final bridge while providing the patient with a functional and attractive smile. After several weeks of healing, I placed an all-ceramic bridge over the front teeth. In three appointments, I gave "D." a handsome smile that feels great and will last a long time.

Very attentive, thorough staff! Was in today receiving a crown and fillings-I felt absolutely nothing during the procedure and was impressed with how quickly the appointment went and how thoroughly the dentist explained everything. I highly recommend this dental group!
