Custom Dental Bridges in Wichita, KS
If you have missing teeth, it is important to replace them in order to continue chewing and speaking with ease. Missing teeth can make these activities difficult and may also alter the alignment of your surrounding teeth as they shift into the space created. Missing teeth have also been linked to an increased risk of gum disease. Missing teeth should be replaced. There are several options for replacing missing teeth. One of these is a custom dental bridge from Wichita Family Dental.
At Wichita Family Dental, we have highly-skilled and trained techs who can design and mill your custom bridge in-house. That means you don’t have to wait 2-3 weeks for a lab to fabricate it. You can have it in days and quickly restore your ability to eat and speak and your appearance.
Dental Bridge Options
A dental bridge literally bridges the gap between teeth where one or more may be missing. It attaches artificial teeth (called pontics) to the nearby natural teeth. Bridges may be removable or permanently attached (called a fixed partial denture). Removable bridges can be taken out and cleaned, but fixed bridges are more stable. Dental bridges can be made from porcelain, gold alloy, non-precious alloy, or a combination of these materials. A dental bridge from Wichita Family Dental will support your lips and cheeks, helping you maintain your appearance.
DENTAL BRIDGE PROCESS
First, your Wichita Family Dental assistant will take a digital scan. No more messy, bad-tasting impressions. Your scan will take only minutes to perform while you sit back comfortably. Your assistant will also use a Shade Book to find the perfect color for your bridge, ensuring it will match your surrounding teeth. Then, a Wichita Family Dental lab tech will design your bridge and send it to one of our milling units. Once the milling is complete, our tech will color your restoration to perfectly match your complimentary shade. Your bridge will be coated and glazed for a beautiful sheen.
