Old Couple Smiling

Fill the gap with dental bridges in Berkeley, CA

When you lose a tooth, you also lose the carefree feeling of smiling with confidence and eating with ease. Dental bridges from Transcendentist in Berkeley, CA are designed to provide full functional and aesthetic restoration, usually without surgery or lengthy recovery time.

What is a dental bridge?

Just as the name implies, this type of restoration is designed to bridge the gap in your smile. It is an excellent choice for a single tooth, or in some cases multiple teeth replacement. The bridge consists of one or more synthetic teeth, with a dental crown on each side. It is a single unit, although it looks like separate beautiful teeth.

About the procedure

The best candidate for a dental bridge is missing a very small number of teeth and has strong healthy teeth on both sides of the gap. This is ideal because the dental bridge is held in place by crowns, which attach to those teeth. However, we can use other techniques to accommodate various situations. If either or both supporting teeth are weak, decayed, or otherwise compromised, we may recommend root canal therapy prior to placement of a permanent dental bridge. For a patient who only has a tooth on one side of the gap, we can place a dental implant on the other side.

The benefits of a dental bridge from Transcendentist

Exceptional dental care is multi-faceted, with high priority given to aesthetics, functionality, longevity, and a wonderful patient experience. In our office, you will be pampered and catered to while your restorative dentist creates a customized solution for your unique needs. We work with a premier dental laboratory, where your new restoration will be custom crafted by an expert technician.

The benefits include:

  • Dental bridge care is very similar to normal oral hygiene, though you will need to clean under the false tooth or teeth.
  • If you maintain good oral health and follow your dentist’s recommendations, your bridge can last for many years.
  • Replacing that tooth protects your oral health by preventing nearby teeth from shifting.
  • No one will ever guess that you have “false teeth.” Instead, they will simply admire your lovely smile.
