WHAT ARE PORCELAIN BRIDGES?
If one or several of your teeth are missing, it creates more than just a problem with the appearance of your smile. Gaps between your teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift and move away from their ideal positions. This could cause extra tension when you bite, pain during chewing, or even trouble speaking. A porcelain bridge helps to improve the health and appearance of your mouth by filling in spaces with a custom-made restoration that is supported by either your natural teeth, dental implants, or a combination of both. At Zensmiles in Frisco, TX, board-certified dentist Dr. Mohit Shardha offers bridges crafted with top-quality materials (such as porcelain) to help restore your smile. If you have one or more teeth missing, schedule a consultation with Dr. Shardha to learn about your treatment options for a custom bridge.
Porcelain Bridges Reviews
"Great experience at zensmiles and dr. Sharda, This revew is long overdue, I was a very challenging case due to bone loss from my medical conditions, several dental surgeons had given up on me before coming here. Dr Sharda planned my surgery meticulously and place computer guided implants which I saw being placed vertually even before the surgery was done. I got implant bridges and love them, no problems after surgery or after bridges. I got the iv sedation done and did not remember a thing, being a RN and in healthcare for more than 3 decades I know the importance of finding a great surgeon and an anesthesiologist to put me to sleep and I am so glad I found both in Dr. Sharda. Thanks and God bless you all!"- J.R. / Google / Apr 04, 2019
"I would highly recommend zensmiles and Dr Sharda, I had my front bridges done in Europe when I was younger and they where failing, I did not want to loose my teeth, Dr Sharda along with his root canal specialist where able to save my teeth and give me a new smile, Earlier I would always put a hand on my mouth when laughing, but now I can smile with confidence. Just feel so much better about myself and I am so glad I found this place. My nephew is a dentist in NY, when I visited him and he looked at the work, he said it is "textbook" perfect. I am a very happy patient. Thank you Dr Sharda and his entire staff."- T.G. / Google / Apr 04, 2019
DO I NEED A DENTAL BRIDGE?
Missing teeth are not just a cosmetic problem. Spaces in your smile can powerfully impact your oral health because your mouth is carefully balanced, and missing teeth can affect how well you can perform everyday actions, such as biting, speaking, and chewing. Over time, a missing tooth can lead to your teeth shifting, which can cause problems with your bite (underbite, crossbite, overbite) and gum or jawbone atrophy. A dental bridge requires the surrounding teeth to be strong enough to hold the restoration, as well as sufficient density in the jawbone and gums. Dr. Shardha will assess your mouth during your consultation to help you select the best bridge type for your needs. At Zensmiles, our bridges are crafted with high-quality porcelain.
What To Expect
After prepping and filing down your teeth, Dr. Shardha will take digital impressions of them so your custom bridge can be created. If needed, we may place a temporary bridge or restoration while you wait for your final piece. Once your restoration is ready, we will administer local anesthesia to numb your mouth. If you have any dental anxiety or a strong gag reflex, stronger anesthesia or sedation methods may be considered to keep you comfortable during the procedure. The bridge will either be cemented in place or connected to dental implants, depending on the method you and Dr. Shardha decide on during your consultation. Dr. Shardha will then adjust the fit of the bridge so it's comfortable in your mouth and remains in place.
RESTORATIONS TO COMPLETE YOUR SMILE
Filling in empty spaces in your mouth is important for more than just the aesthetic appeal of your smile — having open gaps between the teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift unfavorably, affecting your oral bite and function. To avoid these issues, schedule an appointment with board-certified dentist Dr. Shardha at your earliest convenience. Our team at Zensmiles looks forward to helping you improve the beauty and health of your teeth with customized porcelain solutions. We accept many forms of payment and are pleased to partner with several different insurance companies.
