About Dental Bridges
A dental bridge fills in the opening between the teeth with a false tooth that is connected to a crown, which is placed over the next tooth. The false tooth attaches to the crown with a pontic. Our dentists provide three main options for bridges at DentalWorks - High Point in High Point, NC which include, a cantilever bridge that surrounds the attached crown; a Maryland bridge, also known as a resin-bonded bridge that connects the false tooth with wings; or a crown that uses framework bonded to the surrounding natural teeth.

"Annette B. I had my first appointment with Dental yesterday, September 19, 2019. I had an excellent experience with the doctor (Dr.Joyce). Dr. Joyce and Staff were very kind and polite. I like the way they explained things to me and actually looked at me as they were talking to me(you don’t see that much often in Doctor’s offices these days). Dr. Joyce and Staff listen to any questions I had and answered those questions for me. I will definitely will be going back."- R.A. / Google / Sep 20, 2019

What to Expect
In preparation for the bridge, our dentists will drill down the support tooth to establish adequate space for the dental crown. After the teeth are prepared for the crown, digital X-rays will be taken so that a thorough visual can be attained and these, as well as the hard impressions will be sent to the dental lab where the permanent bridge is manufactured. Our dentists will cover the individual's teeth with temporary coverings for protection until the permanent bridge is ready. Once the bridge is ready, our dentists will secure the bridge and realign the fit for a normal look and comfort.
Dental bridges can last for up to 15 years as long as proper dental exams at DentalWorks - High Point in High Point, NC continue each year. It is also important that in addition to yearly check-ups, patients adhere incorporate a thorough at-home oral health regime. This includes, flossing, brushing, and fluoride, which will allow the bridge to last as long as possible.
Dental insurance generally handles a nice portion of the overall expense for professional dental bridges. The patient's coverage will depend on the benefits policy, but our billing office at DentalWorks - High Point will confirm with your provider to understand as to what the patient may owe. Our dental practice takes many insurance plans. Patients who do not have insurance coverage may benefit from one of our financing options.
