About Dental Bridges
A dental bridge closes in the gap between the teeth with a false tooth that is attached to a crown, which is placed over the next tooth. The fake tooth attaches to the crown with a pontic. Our dentists provide several options for bridges at Riverchase Dental Care in Coppell, TX which include, a cantilever bridge that surrounds the connected crown; a Maryland bridge, also known as a resin-bonded bridge that connects the false tooth with extensions; or a crown that uses framework cemented to the surrounding natural teeth.

"I thank God for Dr. Joe! Dr. Joe is very professional and caring about his patients. Keeping them calm and fully educating them on their dental health. I appreciate that Dr. Joe takes a more conservative approach. I know he is very knowledgeable and highly skilled. I came to his office recently in Jan. 2019 for a second opinion & my suspicions about the previous doctor's assessment from LA was right. UNNECESSARY diagnoses to pad their pocket. (this happens far too often) So thankfully I was able to receive the proper care and correct diagnosis by Dr. Joe and his team. I now fly from LA to Dallas for all my dental care because I know I can trust him. Trust means everything. I enjoy all the office staff, manager and my dental hygienist - Adriana she's AMAZING too. I highly recommend Dr. Joe and his office if you want someone who is trustworthy, professional and treat you with care."- D.M. / Google / May 19, 2019

What to Expect
To prepare the teeth for the bridge, our dentists will file down the abutment tooth to make adequate room for the dental crown. Once the teeth are ready for the crown, digital X-rays will be made so that a full visual can be attained and these, along with the hard impressions will be sent to the lab where the permanent bridge is manufactured. Our dentists will fit the individual's teeth with temporary fixtures for protection until the final bridge is ready. When the bridge is ready, our dentists will attach the bridge and realign the fit for a natural look and comfort.
Professional bridges for the teeth can last for years as long as routine dental exams at Riverchase Dental Care in Coppell, TX continue each year. It is also crucial that in addition to professional cleanings, patients focus incorporate a thorough at-home oral health regime. This includes, brushing twice a day and flossing, which will allow the dental work to last as long as possible.
Dental insurance generally takes care of a decent portion of the overall fee for professional bridges. The patient's coverage will depend on the insurance plan, but our insurance coordinators at Riverchase Dental Care will confirm with your provider to understand as to what the patient may owe. Our office takes a variety of insurance plans. Patients without insurance may benefit from one of our billing programs.
