Will My Smile Feel Any Different?
Your new bridge is customized to the exact specifications of your smile. Before cementing to the underlying teeth or affixing it to the supporting implants, the shade, occlusion, and all aspects of its fit get carefully checked. In addition to being designed to blend seamlessly with your smile, it’s also made to suit your bite and withstand all oral functions. We take great care to make sure your new restoration looks great, fits well, and that your bite feels comfortable.
Will Dental Insurance Cover The Cost Of A Bridge?
Replacing missing teeth with a dental bridge is a worthwhile investment in your smile’s look, health, and function. While many dental insurances offer coverage for a dental bridge and some toward the cost of implants, the benefits and amounts can vary significantly from plan to plan. At the office of Dentistry By Design PC, we understand the financial considerations involved in care and do all we can to help patients begin treatment without any additional stress or delay. In addition to doing our best to optimize your dental benefits, we also offer several payment and financing options. Feel free to contact our office if you have any questions on the cost of care, dental insurance, financing plans, or acceptable forms of payment.
How Do I Care For My Dental Bridge?
Now that your new permanent crown or bridge is in place, it’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene. With proper care, your new restorations will last for years to come. Make sure to brush and floss as instructed. We’ll show you how to floss under your dental bridge to keep your new smile clean and bright. Remember to make appointments for your routine checkups and professional cleanings.
How Long Will A Dental Bridge Last?
The standard answer is that with routine dental visits and good home care, a bridge can last ten to fifteen years and, in many cases, much longer.
