Have you lost your smile confidence because there are teeth missing in your smile? If smiling with gaps in your teeth makes you too self-conscious, our team is here to help. Dr. Angela Catalano is pleased to offer fixed dental bridges for our patients in Las Vegas, Nevada, who are seeking to replace their missing teeth so they can smile again without feeling embarrassed.

At Innovative Dentistry, many of our patients have found fixed bridges to be an excellent choice when bridging a gap in their smiles. A fixed bridge distributes the forces in your bite evenly so the remaining teeth don’t have to compensate for the missing teeth. With the aid of a dental bridge, you will be able to speak and chew normally again, prevent remaining teeth from shifting position, and maintain your facial features.

How does having a bridge work?

1- Bridges help those who have lost their pearly whites and still have plenty of jawbone material to support an implant.

2- The bridge is cemented or screwed into the bone, holding it securely.

3- Fixed bridges are typically made of porcelain fused to metal.

4- With a fixed dental bridge your teeth emerge from the gums so you won’t have anything going over your gums or touching the palate.

5- Maintaining your bridge is easy; take good care of your remaining teeth and gums through diligent daily cleaning along with bi-annual professional cleanings and exams. With proper care, your bridge may last longer than ten years.
