What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is used to span the gap where missing teeth once were, filling the space with a synthetic tooth. Like a bridge spanning a river, dental bridges need support at either end. Fitting a bridge requires applying a crown to the teeth at either end of the bridge (abutment teeth) so that it can be held securely. Dental bridges are a permanent solution to missing teeth and unlike dentures a bridge is fixed in place and only a dentist can remove it.

A Dental Bridge provides many benefits:

  • Restores a healthy bite to help chewing
  • Improves your smile
  • Reduces the damage remaining teeth suffer due to a misaligned bite
  • Restores confidence after an injury or accident
  • Preserves the shape and structure of your face

The Dental Bridge Procedure: What to expect?

Fitting a Dental Bridge may require several visits to Maxcare Otahuhu Dental.

Your initial visits will involve an examination of your teeth. This is done to ensure your remaining teeth are strong enough to support a Dental Bridge. We also need to make sure you do not have gum disease or any tooth infections. 

The abutment teeth will be prepared for the placing of dental crowns. We will then take measurements concerning the area to be bridged, make an impression, and use a shade card to determine what shade your bridge will be so that it perfectly matches your natural teeth.

This information will all be sent to the dental lab so your new crowns and bridge can be created. In the meantime we will place a temporary bridge in your mouth. This will not look as good or be as secure as the final product, but it will preserve your appearance while you wait.

Once your new bridge is ready, you will need to come back to the clinic for the temporary Dental Bridge to be removed and the new one bonded in place. The visits will take approximately 1 hour – 1 hour and a half.

Frequently asked Questions about Dental Bridges.

Will my bridge look and feel natural?

Yes, absolutely. At Maxcare Otahuhu Dental, we will take every step necessary to ensure they look natural and fit perfectly.

How long does a Dental Bridge last?

Dental bridges can last upwards of 15 years+ . Keep in mind that this answer is different for everyone and will be determined by your daily habits. Your overall oral health will influence the longevity of your bridge. 

Will the Dental Bridge procedures be painful?

At Maxcare Otahuhu Dental we provide you with anesthesia so you can remain comfortable while getting your Dental Bridge. The only time this should be necessary is when your teeth are being prepared and when your bridge is being secured in place.

Will I have trouble eating with a bridge?

No, eating will be made easier with a dental bridge because it increases your ability to chew and protects exposed areas.

How do I care for my Dental Bridge?

Like regular teeth, Dental Bridges should be brushed and flossed to get rid of debris and bacteria.

Can ACC help cover the cost of Dental Bridges?

Yes, if your need has arisen due to accidentally injury. Otherwise ACC will not cover the cost.

Very professional, friendly and great service. I had a root canal done, the doctor that treated me was excellent. Very knowledgeable and professional. He made me feel very comfortable and I trusted him from the start. The issue was dealt with in 3 sessions. My tooth has been well taken care of, it looks and feels great. I am very happy and would definitely recommend this practice. Thank you MaxCare and all the staff.

Had the horrifying experience of my front tooth just breaking completely off, I went to another dentist who quoted me $6000 for an implant..but he couldn't offer me any temporary replacement... there's no way I was walking around with no tooth for a week, googled implants and maxcare popped up with a deal of $3995. I called them they saw me straight away, I was given options but all came with the promise they could fix a temporary tooth.. they were friendly and really seemed to care..I walked out with my smile and dignity intact and will be back soon to get the implant.. couldn't recommend them more highly..great service.. amazing price
