Restore Your Smile With Dental Bridges

By: Dr. Christopher Ashby


Your smile is one of the first things many people notice about you, and it can significantly impact your self-confidence. You may feel self-conscious if you have missing teeth, but restorative dentistry has a solution — dental bridges. Dental bridges are made up of two or more dental crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth or teeth in between, which not only fill in the gaps left by missing teeth but also maintain the shape of your face and alleviate the stress in your bite. They are a trusted, time-tested treatment. With the expertise of Dr. Christopher Ashby at Fort Laramie Dental Center in Fort Laramie, OH, you can achieve a perfect smile thanks to his proficiency in CEREC® same-day restorations.

When are dental bridges the right solution?

Every patient's dental needs are unique, and there are several reasons why Dr. Ashby might recommend a dental bridge or a CEREC same-day restoration. Dental bridges are most commonly used when one or more teeth are missing, causing aesthetic and functional issues. They are also helpful in cases where a tooth is severely damaged or decayed and can't support a traditional filling. On the other hand, CEREC same-day restorations, which use advanced CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) technology to deliver same-day crowns and bridges, are ideal when time is of the essence.

The process of creating your personalized dental bridge

The journey to restore your smile with dental crowns and bridges starts with a comprehensive dental exam. Dr. Ashby then prepares the teeth on either side of the gap to accommodate the crowns. Once complete, a digital scan is taken and sent to the CEREC machine, which creates a personalized dental bridge in just one visit. This saves time and ensures an ideal fit and a comfortable experience.

The future of dental restoration

With the advent of CEREC same-day restorations, patients no longer need to endure the inconvenience of multiple visits or temporary repairs. Instead, they can leave their appointment with a completed dental bridge, ready to face the world with a restored smile. The process is efficient and accurate and offers virtually indistinguishable results from your natural teeth.
