Main Content
Dental bridges are a great way to replace missing teeth. Your existing teeth are used to literally create a bridge to cross the area where your tooth is missing. Bridges are made from gold, metal, alloys, or porcelain to ensure that they are strong and durable.

The process of creating a bridge begins by creating abutments out of your existing teeth where the bridge will be attached. The existing teeth are recontoured to provide a base for the bridge. After the abutments have been created, a mold is taken of the area which is sent to a dental lab. The lab is able to use the mold to create a bridge that will fit properly and feel as close to your natural teeth as possible. The bridge consists of two crowns on either end to place on the abutments and a pontic, which is the new tooth that replaces your missing tooth.

We will fit you with a temporary bridge while we wait for the lab to craft your permanent bridge. This will protect the abutments and the exposed gum areas and look more appealing than having a missing tooth. When the permanent bridge has been created, you will have a follow up visit to set the bridge. It will be placed on the abutments and the dentist will then use an adhesive to make sure that the bridge is set.

The bridge may take a little while to get used to, but after a few days it should feel like you have your own teeth back again. You should eat soft foods for the first few days after having your bridge placed. After the initial phase, you will be able to eat whatever you want with no issues.

If you are missing a tooth you should strongly consider having it replaced. Besides the aesthetic disadvantage of missing a tooth, it could also cause structural changes to your mouth and jaw, as well as making it difficult to eat or speak properly.

    Testimonial

    Dr. Liu's technique is second to none, you have no pain after procedure. I would highly recommend Dr. Liu.

    - Russ I. / Chula Vista, CA / May 9, 2014

    I love this place! Before coming here, I was terrified of dentist and would only come in when I absolutely had to. Dr. Liu is awesome and seems to really care about his patients. He's very kind and his method of giving shots is remarkable (almost painless)! He is also a great educator and makes sure his patients leave his office with the tools to care for their own teeth. Everyone else is fun and welcoming, it's never a dull appointment. The receptionists, Gus and Pablo, are hilarious and can get you to talk about anything and everything. Leticia, the dental assistant, has great chair side manner and is very sweet. I highly recommend this dentist office!
