Drs. Razdolsky and Tincher have provided dental bridges to patients in Lake Forest, IL since acquiring Lake Forest Dental Associates in 2015.
Their expertise and experience result in bridges that are highly aesthetic, functional, and long lasting – the most important aspects of dental restorations. Whether you need to replace a single missing tooth or a span of multiple missing teeth, bridges from Drs. Razdolsky and Tincher can restore your health and your smile with confidence.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a tooth replacement option, where a false tooth is held into place by the teeth around it. If you are missing multiple teeth, we may recommend implants to support the false tooth.
Is a bridge right for you?
There are many benefits to getting a bridge. In addition to replacing your missing tooth, it is also less expensive than a dental implant and is fixed in place.
The ideal candidate for a bridge would have:
- A healthy tooth in front and behind the missing tooth site
- Not enough bone for an implant
- No desire for a dental implant due to cost or recovery time
- Crowns or large restorations on teeth adjacent to missing tooth site
Getting a Bridge
The procedure for receiving a bridge can take anywhere from two to four hours and requires two appointments at our Lake Forest dental office: one to fit the framework and one to place the final restoration. We are fortunate that our local lab technicians are considered the best in the country! They use the highest quality materials to ensure your bridge is the perfect fit, size, and color to match the rest of your natural teeth. We do everything we can to make sure you are happy with your final restoration. If you are missing a tooth and would like to restore your smile’s original strength and beauty, schedule an appointment at Lake Forest Dental Associates. Drs. Razdolsky and Tincher can present all your treatment options and help you choose the one that’s right for you.
