Bridge the Gap and Smile with Confidence
Missing teeth can negatively affect the appearance and function of your smile. When teeth are lost, remaining teeth may shift, altering a proper bite and increasing the risk for tooth decay. Dental bridges fill in the spaces left by missing teeth to re-establish a healthy, solid smile.
To prepare your mouth for the bridge, Dr. Hong or Dr. Lam will numb the area and prepare the teeth immediately on either side of the space. Next, the doctor will take an impression, which serves as the model for your permanent bridge We will fit you with a temporary bridge to wear until your permanent prosthetic arrives from the dental lab. At your next appointment, the dentist will remove your temporary and place the fixed, custom bridge. If you practice proper dental hygiene and schedule regular checkups, a dental bridge can last for years.
We would love the opportunity to make you smile. Call to reserve your appointment with Dr. Hong or Dr. Lam, and we can discuss the benefits of dental bridges. Our Westmont office serves patients from Downer's Grove, Hinsdale, Oak Brook, and the surrounding areas.
