About Dental Bridges
A dental bridge frames together the opening between the teeth with a false tooth that is securely fitted to a crown, which is placed over the next tooth. The false porcelain tooth attaches to the crown with a pontic. Our dentists provide patients with numerous treatment options for bridges at DentalWorks - Carmel Village in Charlotte, NC which include, a cantilever bridge that surrounds the nearby crown; a Maryland bridge, also known as a resin-bonded bridge that connects the false tooth with small arms; or a crown that uses framework glued to the surrounding natural teeth.
"I cannot thank Dr.Hinte and her team enough for always making me feel at ease. From the moment I walk in Vanessa and/or Tamika are greeting me and offering bottled water. Dr. Hinte and Irma (I may have misspelled her name) but they did such a great job and keeping me calm. I'm truly scared of the dentist but you all make me want to come back. Thank you"- V.T. / Yelp / Dec 06, 2018

What to Expect
Prior to receiving a bridge, our dentists will bore down the prop tooth to establish adequate opening for the dental crown. As soon as the teeth are prepared for the crown, digital X-rays will be created so that an in-depth visual can be attained and these, in addition to the hard impressions will be sent to the laboratory where the permanent bridge is manufactured. Our dentists will protect the individual's teeth with temporary coverings for protection until the real bridge is ready. As soon as the bridge is ready, our dentists will secure the bridge and realign the fit for an ideal look and comfort.
Bridges can last for quite a long time as long as proper dental exams at DentalWorks - Carmel Village in Charlotte, NC continue each year. It is also recommended that in addition to dental cleanings and exams, patients proactively incorporate a thorough at-home oral health regime. This includes, consistent flossing, brushing, and fluoride use, which will allow the dental bridge to last as long as possible.
Dental insurance generally pays for a acceptable portion of the overall price for professional dental crowns and bridges. The patient's coverage will depend on the policy, but our office staff at DentalWorks - Carmel Village will confirm with your provider to understand as to what the patient may owe. Our practice takes a list of insurance plans. Patients who are not covered may benefit from one of our financing options.
