Are you missing one or multiple teeth due to age, normal wear and tear, neglect, or an injury? Do yourself a favor and see your San Antonio TX family dentist in downtown San Antonio at Southtown Dental Group as soon as possible! The longer you wait to look for a missing tooth replacement such as a dental bridge, the more likely your remaining teeth will begin to shift—messing up your bite and potentially altering your facial structure.
Our San Antonio dentist, Dr. Gary Guillory, can help you effectively replace the missing part of your smile with function restoring dental bridges. If you want to maintain a healthy smile and appearance, Dr. Guillory has over twenty years of hands-on experience with happy and satisfied patients. You can trust “Your Neighborhood Dentist” with restoring your smile with affordable dental bridges!
What are Dental Bridges?
A dental bridge is essentially a device that holds a replacement tooth called a dental crown in place over the gap where your natural tooth once rested. The bridge grasps onto teeth that neighbor the gap, becoming a natural anchor while suspending the dental crown, in place.
The crown and bridge replace the missing tooth to restore the full function of your smile.
How are San Antonio Dental Bridges placed?
Our San Antonio TX dentist will evaluate the structure of your teeth and the alignment of your bite in order to determine the best course of action. When restoring smiles, it is important to make sure that the replacement dental crowns and bridge do not interfere with the natural bite.
After your evaluation, the doctor will have the crown designed and fitted to match the formation of your mouth and insert a temporary crown into the bridge until the final one has been created. When the final crown has been completed, he will bond and cement the bridge in place on your neighboring teeth, thus restoring your bite!
