About Dental Bridges
A bridge fills in the opening between the teeth with a porcelain tooth that is connected to a crown, which is created to form over the attaching tooth. The false tooth connects to the crown with a pontic. Our dentists offer three main options for bridges at Windsor Dental Care in Aurora, CO including, a cantilever bridge that covers the attached crown; a Maryland bridge, referred to as a resin-bonded bridge that attaches the fake tooth with wings; or a crown that incorporates framework bonded to the nearby natural teeth.

What to Expect
In preparation for the bridge, our dentists will drill down the support tooth to establish enough space for the crown. After the teeth are prepared for the crown, X-ray imaging will be taken so that a thorough visual can be achieved and these, as well as the physical impressions will then be distributed to the dental lab where the final bridge is manufactured. Our dentists will cover the patient's teeth with temporary coverings for protection until the permanent bridge is ready. Once the bridge is created, our dentists will secure the bridge and adjust the fit for a normal appearance and comfort.
