About Dental Bridges
A bridge frames together the gap between the teeth with a porcelain tooth that is securely fitted to a crown, which is created to form over the attaching tooth. The false porcelain tooth connects to the crown with a pontic. Our dentists offer patients with numerous treatment options for bridges at North Beach Dental in Fort Worth, TX including, a cantilever bridge that covers the nearby crown; a Maryland bridge, referred to as a resin-bonded bridge that attaches the fake tooth with small arms; or a crown that incorporates framework glued to the nearby natural teeth.

What to Expect
Prior to receiving a bridge, our dentists will bore down the prop tooth to make enough opening for the crown. As soon as the teeth are ready for the crown, X-ray imaging will be created so that an in-depth visual can be achieved and these, in addition to the physical impressions will then be distributed to the laboratory where the final bridge is manufactured. Our dentists will protect the patient's teeth with temporary fixtures for protection until the real bridge is ready. As soon as the bridge is created, our dentists will attach the bridge and adjust the fit for an ideal appearance and comfort.
Bridges can stay durable for quite a long time as long as routine dental examinations at North Beach Dental in Fort Worth, TX take place each year. It is also recommended that in addition to dental cleanings and exams, patients proactively incorporate a consistent at-home dental health regime. Per the dentist's instructions, consistent flossing, brushing, and fluoride use, which will allow the dental bridge to last for many years to come.
Coverage through insurance generally pays for a acceptable portion of the total price for professional dental crowns and bridges. The exact coverage will depend on the policy, but our office staff at North Beach Dental will coordinate with your provider to gain insight as to what the patient may owe. Our practice accepts a list of insurance plans. Individuals who are not covered may take part in one of our billing programs.
