Restore Your Smile and Confidence with Dental Bridges

You may feel uncomfortable smiling because of one or more missing teeth.

Missing teeth can cause a whole host of problems, including difficulty in chewing and speaking, shifting of other teeth, and the onset of gum disease.

You want your smile to be confident and proud, but you can’t help feeling self-conscious about the gaps in between each tooth. At Prospect Road Dental, we offer treatments for restoring your smile including dental bridges. We offer porcelain bridges that attach to either side of your gap and restore both function and confidence in your smile. Call us on 08 9399 2037 or book an appointment online so we can assist you with your tooth restoration.

What Are Dental Bridges For

If you’re looking for a dental procedure that can help restore the natural beauty of your smile, then you should consider getting a dental bridge. A bridge is a popular procedure that can manage the following dental problems:
Tooth Loss:
Missing teeth can be both embarrassing and inconvenient. Restore them with durable and natural-looking dental bridges from Prospect Road Dental.
Biting and Chewing Issues:
If you’re experiencing difficulties biting and chewing because of missing teeth, dental bridges may be an affordable option for you. They can bridge the gap and improve your teeth’s bite distribution so you can enjoy your favorite foods again.
Facial Malformation:
Missing teeth can affect the shape of your face. With dental bridges from Prospect Road Dental, you can maintain your natural facial structure.
Risk for Misaligned Teeth:
Improve your smile and prevent costly dental damage with dental bridges from Prospect Road Dental. Bridges can prevent neighbouring teeth from shifting out of position and moving into the gaps, preventing further damage to your teeth.

FAQ About Our Dental Clinic In Armadale

We understand that you may have questions when seeing a new dentist for the first time. If your concern isn’t addressed
below, please feel free to contact our practice. One of our friendly team members will be happy to assist you.

An ideal candidate for dental bridges is a patient who is missing one to four consecutive teeth. Suitable candidates must:

  1. have no gum disease
  2. be generally healthy, and
  3. have adequately strong and healthy adjacent teeth on both sides of the tooth gap.

In cases of periodontal disease, the patient should have their gums treated before a bridge is placed. For implant-supported dental bridges, there needs to be sufficient jawbone density. If you do not have enough bone density for a dental bridge, you may need a bone graft procedure.

You have to wait until the gum shape stabilises before getting a dental bridge. The jawbone surrounding the extracted tooth can take eight to twelve weeks to completely heal after an extraction. You can wear a temporary bridge or partial denture during the healing phase if you wish. The dental office can fabricate a temporary bridge that will be placed on the same day as the tooth extraction.

Dental bridges are usually made of porcelain. Platinum, nickel, gold, or chromium alloys are commonly used for supporting strength. The porcelain overlay is matched to your natural tooth colour so that it blends in seamlessly.
Getting a dental bridge is typically painless since your dentist will numb the area before the dental procedure. Local anaesthesia is used to prepare teeth for anchoring the bridge. Once the anaesthesia wears off, you may experience minimal discomfort.

A dental bridge procedure usually requires two dental visits. The first dental visit involves tooth preparation. In some cases, a local anaesthetic is used to ease discomfort. The dentist will then file the abutment teeth to remove a thin layer of tooth enamel. 

An impression or mould of your teeth will be made and sent to the dental laboratory to customise your dental bridge. A temporary bridge may be provided to cover the prepared teeth until the permanent bridge is ready.

Another dental appointment will be scheduled when the customised bridge is ready. We may administer a local anesthetic if there is discomfort, then remove the temporary bridge. Your dentist will then clean your teeth before placing the bridge. To ensure that the bridge fits correctly, your dentist will take X-rays. Finally, the bridge will be glued to your teeth with dental cement.

Avoid eating hard, sticky, and chewy foods, such as caramel or popcorn, as well as foods and beverages high in sugar and acid, to prevent damage to your dental bridges.

Here are some ways you can prevent your dental bridge from breaking:

  1. Avoid eating hard, sticky, and chewy foods.
  2. Don’t bite on or chew on hard foods such as ice.
  3. Do not open bottles or packages with your teeth.
  4. Wear a custom mouth guard when participating in contact sports or high-fall-risk activities.

1. You should brush your teeth at least twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste. 

2. Floss every day and pay special attention to flossing around your dental bridge. 

3. We also recommend visiting your dentist every six months for a professional cleaning.

The cost of bridges depends on a number of factors, including the bridge type, the number of missing teeth, the complexity of the placement, and whether additional dental treatments are necessary. On average, the cost of dental bridges can range from $2,000 to $5,000.

There are several alternatives to dental bridges, including:

  1. Partial Dentures: These are prosthetic teeth attached to a plastic and metal framework covering the natural teeth. False teeth can be made to fit around any number of natural teeth. A complete set of dentures is also available for people who have lost all of their teeth.
  2. Dental Implants: Implants provide a more permanent alternative tooth replacement than dentures. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. They are often made from titanium, a biocompatible metal alloy. A dental crown is attached to an implant by an abutment.
