About Dental Bridges
A bridge closes in the space between the teeth with a porcelain tooth that is attached to a crown, which is created to form over the attaching tooth. The fake tooth connects to the crown with a pontic. Our dentists offer several options for bridges at DentalWorks - Belden Plaza in Canton, OH including, a cantilever bridge that covers the connected crown; a Maryland bridge, referred to as a resin-bonded bridge that attaches the fake tooth with extensions; or a crown that incorporates framework cemented to the nearby natural teeth.
"I came in to get my broken tooth fixed. When they did xrays they found where I need some work done and they were VERY pleasant about it.They are all friendly and made you feel welcome!"- T.M. / Yelp / May 26, 2017
"I just came home from my appointment. My whole family of 5 has been going to DentalWorks since 2007. They've seen my kids (2 of whom are adults now and still going there) through cavities and braces. They are always fast, efficient, and gentle on your teeth. We've also seen them while with different insurance companies, so they must be on most plans."- H.M. / Yelp / May 08, 2017

"They deserve ten stars. Took my elderly blind neighbor to Bright Now dental and waited over an hour and a half past our appt time. Was so angry we walked out and didn't know what to do so we found Dental Works in the same mall. We had no appt but they fit us right in. They were wonderful. Had to have 12 teeth pulled and now onto dentures. All the women that work there are very friendly and caring. Dr Chi was great and very gentle on a poor lady who was scared to death. Would highly recommend them and their price was the best too!!!!!"- D.P. / Yelp / Mar 29, 2017

What to Expect
To prepare the teeth for the bridge, our dentists will file down the abutment tooth to create enough room for the crown. Once the teeth are prepped for the crown, X-ray imaging will be made so that a full visual can be achieved and these, along with the physical impressions will then be distributed to the lab where the final bridge is manufactured. Our dentists will fit the patient's teeth with temporary abutments for protection until the final bridge is ready. When the bridge is created, our dentists will cement the bridge and adjust the fit for a natural appearance and comfort.
Professional bridges for the teeth can stay durable for years as long as consistent dental examinations at DentalWorks - Belden Plaza in Canton, OH take place each year.
