Dental Bridges

 

The perfect cosmetic dentistry solution

 

Bridge (Impression)

Bridge Versus an Implant

Dental bridges can be life altering for patients that have gaps or missing teeth. The replacement teeth match the natural ones surrounding them, restoring confidence in the beauty of your smile.

The benefits of dental bridges

Besides a tremendous improvement in your smile, other benefits of having a dental bridge are:

  • restoring your ability to chew
  • helping you speak clearly again
  • distributing the force of your bite properly, and
  • preventing your other teeth from drifting.

And since your dental bridge is fixed and not removable, food is not caught underneath, so it is extremely easy to clean. A bridge is the closest thing to your own teeth, so it will feel like it grew there. All in all, it is a permanent solution that will alleviate many cosmetic dentistry concerns.

The process of placing a dental bridge

I prepare the surrounding teeth for placement of the bridge, much like the procedure for a crown, and I take impressions of the teeth for a custom fit. The lab then uses the impression as a model to make your bridge.

Dental bridges can be anchored and supported by your own teeth, or by dental implants, whichever dental solution we decide is right for you.

What to expect from your dental bridge

Your dental bridge is covered with natural-looking porcelain, which I precisely match to the color of your surrounding teeth. You can expect your bridge to look as natural as your own teeth, so it blends beautifully with your smile.

The bridge is safe, durable, and comfortable, and will help you enjoy life again, without the concern or embarrassment that comes from gaps or missing teeth.

Care of your dental bridge

Since your dental bridge is permanent, cleaning and maintaining your bridge is a breeze. You can forget it’s there! Just floss and brush as you would your natural teeth. It couldn’t be easier.

I realize that each individual is unique. That’s why I work with you to tailor and customize the treatment, and the bridge, that is right for you. Together, we’ll come up with the most appropriate solution for your circumstances, so you’ll feel good about the process of restoring your teeth to their natural health, beauty, and function.

If you’d like to schedule a consultation to discuss the benefits of a dental bridge, or any other cosmetic dentistry issue, I’d love to talk to you about your concerns and how I can help you. We will decide what is the best dental plan for you—one that works with your budget, your time, and your goals for better oral health.

Dr. Zanni is fabulous— as a dentist, as a doctor, as a compassionate caregiver. New to the area, I had no dentist yet when a front tooth broke unexpectedly on a Sunday night. I found Dr. Zanni on google and called his emergency phone number. To my surprise, he answered after 2 rings and began helping me immediately, despite the fact that not only was I not a patient of his, but a total stranger. Although he was out of town, he offered to see me after office hours when he returned the next day. As promised, he met me at his office, took a meticulous cast of my teeth, and by Tuesday afternoon—less than 48 hours after my tooth broke—he had created a new one for me with dental bonding. It was such a perfect piece of work that you'd never know that the tooth had broken at all and that half of it was not my real tooth. I was relieved, impressed with his skill, and very grateful for his kind, swift, successful solution. Later in the week I returned for a long overdue cleaning and received a top-notch dental evaluation from Dr. Zanni that provided me with far more information and insight about not just my oral health but how it related to sleep and headache history than I've ever had before. Dr. Zanni is a personable, caring, and thorough doctor, and I'm very glad to have found him. I highly recommend him and his excellent staff, who are very much like him in skill and professionalism.

I am a long-time patient of Dr. Zanni and would highly recommend him and his staff to anyone looking for a great dentist. He is very thorough and thoughtful and most important - available when needed. Emergencies do occur - everyone associated with this practice will put themselves out to accommodate you and your family. Also, of great importance in this day and age - your appointments run on time!!!
