What Are Dental Bridges?
When one or more of your teeth are missing, it's more than just a cosmetic issue — gaps in your teeth can cause your remaining teeth to shift. This may lead to unnecessary tension in your bite, pain when you chew, or even trouble speaking. A dental bridge improves the health and appearance of your mouth by filling in spaces using a false tooth supported by either crowns, dental implants, or a combination of both. At Elegant Smiles in Las Vegas, NV, our dental experts offer dental bridges with top-quality materials that will help to restore your smile. If you have one or more teeth missing from your smile, schedule a consultative appointment with us to learn about your treatment options with a custom bridge.
How Do Dental Bridges Work?
People with missing teeth don't merely have an appearance problem — gaps in your smile may lead to the shifting of teeth, creating problems with your bite (underbite, overbite, crossbite) and atrophy of the gums and jawbone. To place a bridge, the surrounding teeth must be strong enough to hold the restoration, including sufficient jawbone density and gum tissue. Our team will assess your gums and jaw during your consultation to help you select the best type of bridge (cantilever, traditional, Maryland bonded, or resin bonded) and material (ceramic, porcelain, metal, and porcelain fused to metal). After your supporting teeth have been prepared, our dentist will take impressions of your teeth so your bridge can be created. A temporary bridge or restoration can be placed while your custom one is crafted. Once your restoration is ready, your mouth will be numbed with local anesthesia. Other anesthesia or sedation options may be used if you have anxiety or trouble with a gag reflex so you will be calm during the placement. Your dental bridge will either be cemented in place or attached to implants, depending on the support you and our team chose at your consultation. After your bridge is in place, you should notice an improvement in your teeth's function and appearance. Our doctors will show you how to care for your restoration, including the ways to keep it clean and if you need to avoid any foods. It's important to frequently clean your bridge and mouth since cavities can develop under the restoration. With proper care, your bridge can last for many years.
Elegant Smiles Reviews
Everyone is so nice here and I am well taken care of. Today I came in for my six month cleaning and exam. I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Huynh. She cleaned my teeth and I was pleased that she took her time. I know not many people enjoy going to the dentist, but I really do. I did have some traumatic dental experiences when I was a child, so in the past I did have fear. At Elegant Smiles, I am relaxed knowing that I am in great hands with both Dr Phan and Dr Huynh. Even when I had a filling on my last appointment, the numbing and procedure did not hurt at all! The staff wants to make sure my comfort is a top priority. I highly recommend Elegant Smiles for all of your dental needs.
I wish I could give this dentistry a million stars. I’ve struggled with anxiety when it comes to pain especially at dentist I’ve only ever had bad experiences. I communicated that because I trusted them and they take such good care of me. They make sure I can’t feel any pain or if I do get anxiety they get me water and accommodate me in any way possible with time, patience, netflix to distract, and the massage feature on the chair. They are such kind people here. The assistants remember anything I’ve ever told them which is crazy because they see thousands! You’re always greeted with a gentle voice and smile at the front. Kayla was amazing at the front desk and now they have someone new just as great. They really do their part in the community to take care of others and doing it as their job. I’m so thankful I have chose them.
One day while searching for a great dental practice in Las Vegas, I discovered Elegant Smiles and loved what I read about the husband and wife dental team as well as the wonderful reviews left by happy clients. I was overjoyed when I found out that they accepted my insurance. 25 years ago I cracked a molar and subsequently chose to receive a dental implant from another specialist. My implant is doing just fine, but I love the experience Dr. Phan has in this area, so I chose him as my dentist. I am one happy patient!!!! I absolutely love this practice!!! All of the staff here, and Dr. Phan are so amazing! I have always been one to get dental cleanings every 3 months because I hate the feeling of tartar buildup. Dr. Phan did my cleaning 6 months ago ( my next one is less than 2 weeks away), and I have not felt bothered with tartar. Fabulous dentist! I’m confident his wife is also an amazing dentist as well. I haven’t met her yet, but am willing to see her if needed. I’m in great hands here, and highly recommend Elegant Smiles for your dental care.
If I could give this place 10 stars I would, I normally don't like the dentist. But I enjoy going to Elegant Smiles, everyone is amazing and attentive. If you are looking for a great dentist, look no further.
I've been going to Elegant Smiles for 4 years. They're always professional and friendly and do a superb job taking care of family's teeth.
