Missing teeth can impact your appearance, oral health and confidence. Dental bridges are a fixed option to close the gap in your smile and improve your oral function. In the past, dental bridges required 2-3 visits to design and install a dental bridge to replace missing teeth. With CEREC same day bridges, you can restore your smile in one visit to Hollon Dental in Mobile, AL.
A dental bridge attaches a prosthetic tooth to replace a missing tooth to crowns that fit over adjacent teeth. This row of teeth restorations is designed to fit perfectly with your other teeth and look natural, once bonded in place. To make a bridge, impressions of the missing tooth and adjacent teeth are made, and the crowns and pontics (prosthetic teeth) are made from this mold. This normally would be completed at a dental lab; but with CEREC bridges, everything can be completed at Hollon Dental in one visit.
Advanced Dental Bridges
CEREC technology uses both 3D imaging, computerized design and a 3D dental printer to create tooth restoration on-site. The 3D scanner can create impressions of the affected teeth, which are precise. The scan only takes a few minutes and is much more comfortable than the physical tooth mold used in the past. Once the 3D scan is complete, our restorative dentist can design a dental bridge to fit the adjacent teeth and replace the missing tooth or teeth. The design is digitally sent to the on-site 3D dental printer to create a beautiful ceramic dental bridge that is color-matched to the rest of your smile.
CEREC same day bridges can be bonded in place on the same day they are created. You can walk into our office with a missing tooth, and walk out with a gorgeous, complete smile. This eliminates needing to wear temporary crowns while your bridge is created and multiple visits to our office.
If you have one or more missing teeth, a CEREC same day dental bridge may be a solution for restoring your smile. To learn more about same day dental bridges and our other restorative options, contact us at Hollon Dental. Contact our office to book an appointment at our clinic in Mobile, AL.
