About Dental Bridges
A dental bridge fills in the space 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 - Greensboro in Greensboro, 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.
"An amazing experience from start to finish- Dr. Lam knows his stuff and he was quick! My daughter had all 4 of her impacted wisdom teeth extracted with sedation and we were in and out in an hour. The staff was wonderful the assistants Amanda, Yvonne and Alli took such good care of my daughter and Amanda took time to really review after care with us so we knew what to do after. Front desk staff to the kind assistant that wheeled her out after the surgery were so pleasant and friendly. I would highly recommend this office!"- M.R. / Google / Jul 24, 2017

"A little bit of a wait, but worth it. Had four different specialist help me, and all of them were super nice and kept me informed of everything that they were doing. First time I've actually had a dentist give me a price for something and explain pros and cons before signing me up for a procedure. I felt completely informed and in control of my own treatment. Person who did my paperwork (wish I had caught her name) was awesome, showed me how to deal with insurance forms and itemized all my expenses, even told me I could come back into the office to get help with forms if I needed it. I just picked them cause they were supposedly inexpensive according to Google, and because they were in-network for me, but turned out to be a great choice!"- K.H. / Google / Jul 10, 2017

What to Expect
In preparation for the bridge, our dentists will drill down the support tooth to create adequate space for the dental crown. After the teeth are prepped 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 abutments for protection until the permanent bridge is ready. Once the bridge is ready, our dentists will cement the bridge and realign the fit for a normal look and comfort.
Dental bridges can last for up to 15 years as long as consistent dental exams at DentalWorks - Greensboro in Greensboro, 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 - Greensboro 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 billing plans.
