Dental Bridges Destrehan, LA

Dental Bridges An Overview

If you are missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge can help restore your missing teeth. Typically, a dental bridge consists of dental crowns and a false tooth. Depending on your needs, a dental bridge can either be secured using dental implants or fixed into place using the adjacent teeth which are strengthened with dental crowns. When applicable, Dr. Andrews will recommend an implant secured bridge due to its durability and comfort.

Dr. Melanie Andrews is a highly trained restorative dentist in Destrehan, LA. Dr. Andrews offers a full range of tooth replacement options for patients missing one or more teeth. We understand that missing teeth can affect your social life, confidence, and your oral health; so we work one on one with each patient to create a personalized treatment plan to address their needs.

Types of Dental Bridges

Fixed Dental Bridge: A fixed dental bridge is a temporary solution for patients missing one or more teeth. Dr. Andrews can work with you to determine what type of dental bridge is right for your specific case. If patients are seeking a more durable solution in the future, Dr. Andrews may recommend an implant secured dental bridge or another permanent tooth replacement option.

A fixed bridge can be secured using adjacent teeth, also referred to as “anchor teeth,” that are strengthened by dental crowns. Dr. Andrews will need to remove tooth structure from the adjacent teeth to prepare them for their dental crowns. Using CEREC technology, Dr. Andrews can often create custom-designed dental crowns in one visit to our Destrehan dental office.

Implant Secured Dental Bridge: Implant secured dental bridges offer several benefits for patients missing one or more teeth. Dental implants are surgically implanted into the jaw bone to create a stable foundation used to support a dental bridge. Dental implants help stimulate natural bone growth to reduce facial sagging caused by missing teeth and bone loss. An implant secured dental bridge also allows patients to eat and speak without worry of slippage.

Dental Bridges What to Expect

The process of receiving a dental bridge will vary from patient to patient. Dr. Andrews will perform a full evaluation of the teeth, gums, and supporting bone structure to determine the best solution for you.

For implant secured dental bridges, Dr. Andrews will work with a local surgeon for the implantation phase of the dental implant procedure. For traditional fixed dental bridges, Dr. Andrew will perform all aspects of the procedure in our Destrehan dental office.

Dr. Andrews can create custom dental bridges that blend seamlessly with your existing teeth and natural smile. Our dental bridges are created using high-quality dental materials and state of the art dental technology to ensure a beautiful, long-lasting lasting result.
