Sometimes referred to as a partial, fixed denture, a dental bridge is an appliance used to replace missing teeth with manufactured teeth. The dental bridge looks natural and works to bridge the gap where one or more teeth are missing. If Dr. Titensor recommends a dental bridge in Flower Mound to replace your missing teeth, you can choose from porcelain, alloys, gold, or a combination of these materials for the bridgework. Once the bridge is ready, Dr. Titensor permanently bonds the bridge onto your surrounding teeth to support it.

When you are missing one or more teeth, you may notice a difference in chewing, speaking, and smiling – smiling, because you are self-conscious about your missing teeth and do not smile as often as you would like. Bridges restore your smile, maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate the stress in your bite by replacing your missing teeth.
Your dental bridge construction and placement is a two-visit procedure. During your first visit, Dr. Titensor assesses your teeth, takes x-rays, and determines the options available to you. You might consider partials and dental implants as a means for tooth replacement but if Dr. Titensor recommends a dental bridge, he will then design the device and bond it to your teeth in a second visit.
Most dental bridges consist of a natural looking false tooth that is held together by two crowns. The false tooth bridges the gap and is held in place by the two crowns on either side.
If you are missing one or more teeth, you are a candidate for a dental bridge; however, the difference between proper and improper oral hygiene normally determines the success of your dental bridge.
