Cracking a tooth is rarely an experience you’d want to have more than once. What’s worse is the fact that most cracks to your teeth are so severe they compromise the health of the tooth. In that case, you’ll have to start exploring tooth restoration options.
One of the options we recommend is letting Dr. Robert A. Bell install a dental bridge to fix your cracked teeth and restore your smile to what it used to look like.
his single piece of dental work essentially replicates the appearance of a natural tooth. It is fused to a pair of crowns on each end that will eventually be anchored on abutments formed from the neighboring teeth.
Dr. Robert A. Bell will form the abutments by removing the tooth enamel from the two closest teeth. Then, he will create a detailed impression of the abutments and any other corresponding teeth in your bite pattern. This will be sent to our dental lab where your new bridge will be made.
Then, he will cement hard, plastic, temporary crowns over each abutment to protect it while the lab technician works to produce your new dental bridge.
When the bridge is complete, you’ll be called in for a final appointment where the bridge is installed. Then you’ll have your smile back!
If you think a dental bridge could be the solution to your cracked teeth, call us today at 502-955-6516 to schedule an appointment.
