Dental Bridges – Orange County Dentist
Natural-looking, comfortable dental bridges
Dental bridges are a reliable and cost-effective option for replacing one or more missing teeth. Award-winning Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Ivan Ho specializes in Smile Transformations that leverage many procedures, including dental bridges.
If you are considering a dental bridge for replacing missing teeth, Dr. Ivan Ho can help you. From a thorough clinical exam to detailed design and placement, Dr. Ivan Ho will ensure that your dental bridges are specific to your dental and cosmetic needs.
Is a Bridge the Right Solution?
A bridge is a fixed appliance that replaces missing teeth by gaining support from healthy natural teeth or implants on either side. A carefully designed and fabricated bridge will not only perfectly match your remaining natural teeth but will also enable you to eat, smile, and speak comfortably. Unlike removable dentures which require multiple steps for completion, a bridge can usually be completed relatively quickly, requiring only two or three appointments.
When you come in for a consultation at Pro Smiles Orange County, Dr. Ivan Ho will thoroughly examine your teeth, jaw, and bone structure. He’ll ask you specific questions to find out your aesthetic aspirations and what exactly are your expectations for your new teeth. He will then prepare a customized treatment plan that offers you the best cosmetic outcome and dental functionality.
Sometimes, patients prefer replacing missing teeth with dental implants instead of bridges. This is because implants protect the underlying bone from excessive degradation. They also do not require any alteration of remaining healthy parts of your teeth for their attachment.
However, not everyone is a candidate for dental implant surgery. During your free consultation appointment, Dr. Ivan Ho will advise you on the best teeth replacement option for your smile.
