Sonrisas Dental Center in Austin provides same-day dental bridges, a restorative solution to replace a series of missing teeth with one procedure. We offer tooth-colored bridges that look indistinguishable from natural teeth, helping you achieve an optimally aesthetic smile.

Replace A Series Of Missing Teeth

Dental bridges are a reliable and non-invasive solution for individuals with one or more missing teeth in a row. They consist of prosthetic teeth anchored to neighboring healthy teeth or dental implants. Bridges restore your smile’s aesthetics and improve functionality, enabling proper chewing and speaking. At Sonrisas Dental Center, our skilled team offers same-day dental bridges, ensuring you regain confidence and oral health swiftly and comfortably.

Reasons To Get Bridges:

  • Replace missing teeth
  • Restore smile aesthetics
  • Improve chewing and speaking ability
  • Prevent teeth shifting
  • Maintain facial structure
  • Distribute bite forces evenly
  • Enhance oral health and hygiene
  • Non-invasive and reliable solution
  • Same-day dental bridge options available

Types Of Dental Bridges

Traditional Bridges

Traditional bridges are the most common type of dental bridge. They consist of prosthetic teeth held in place by dental crowns placed on adjacent healthy teeth. These crowns serve as anchors, securing the bridge in position and restoring functionality and aesthetics to the smile.

Maryland Bridges

Maryland bridges are a conservative option. These bridges utilize a metal or porcelain framework bonded to the back of adjacent healthy teeth with a resin adhesive. Unlike traditional bridges, Maryland bridges don’t require extensive preparation of neighboring teeth.

Cantilever Bridges

Cantilever bridges are another type of dental bridge used to replace missing teeth. Unlike traditional bridges, these are anchored by a dental crown on only one side of the gap. They are suitable when there is only one adjacent tooth next to the space of the missing tooth.

Implant-Supported Bridges

Implant-supported bridges are anchored by dental implants surgically placed into the jawbone, providing a strong foundation. Ideal for patients with several adjacent missing teeth, implant-supported bridges offer superior stability, function, and aesthetics for a lifetime.

How Bridges Works

Dental bridges are custom-made restorations that replace one or more missing teeth, restoring both the appearance and function of your smile. The bridge consists of prosthetic teeth, also known as pontics, which fill the gap left by missing teeth. These pontics are anchored in place by dental crowns affixed to the adjacent healthy teeth or dental implants. The crowns act as abutments, supporting and holding the bridge securely in position. With a strong and natural-looking bridge, patients can enjoy improved chewing, speaking, and overall oral health.

Same-Day Bridges For Optimal Convenience

At Sonrisas Dental Center, we understand the importance of efficiency and convenience in dental care. That’s why we offer same-day bridges using advanced CAD/CAM technology.

How Same-Day Bridges Are Designed & Placed

When you visit Sonrisas Dental Center for a same-day bridge, our expert team will begin by taking digital impressions of your teeth using advanced CAD/CAM technology.

Once ready, we will expertly place and secure the bridge, ensuring an immediate restoration of your missing teeth and a confident smile before you leave our office.

Side Effects & Recovery

After getting a dental bridge, you may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity, which typically subsides within a few days. It’s normal to have a brief adjustment period as you get used to the new restoration. Maintaining good oral hygiene and following our dentist’s instructions will ensure a smooth recovery process.

Results: What To Expect

You can expect an aesthetically pleasing and fully restored smile. The bridge will fill the gaps left by missing teeth and improve your ability to eat, speak, and maintain proper oral health. With proper care and regular check-ups, your bridge can last 10 to 20 years, providing a functional smile that stands the test of time.

Tips To Make Bridges Last Longer:

  • Maintain excellent oral hygiene
  • Brush and floss regularly
  • Visit the dentist for check-ups
