About Dental Bridges
A bridge fills in the open space between the teeth with a porcelain tooth that is connected to a crown, which is created to form over the attaching tooth. The false tooth connects to the crown with a pontic. Our dentists offer three main options for bridges at DentalWorks - Northcross Village in Huntersville, NC including, a cantilever bridge that covers the attached crown; a Maryland bridge, referred to as a resin-bonded bridge that attaches the fake tooth with wings; or a crown that incorporates framework bonded to the nearby natural teeth.

"I don't even know where to begin, I just want to brag about this dental staff from a Dental Phobic perspective. Can we say WOW? Long story short, In an emergency, I had called this office and ultimately had to have a tooth extracted. Dental Fear for me is like "death"! LOL I can tell everyone, Jaime (front desk), Jessica (Ofc. Mgr.), Dr. Veders(Dentist) Deena, (Dental Assistant), Emily (Dental Asst.) Vanessa (Front Desk), Kostace (Dental Hygienist) were incredible during the extraction/follow -up and new patient exam. They ALL understood my fear and put me at ease pretty quickly. Yesterday at my new patient exam, I had a great time! I have never had the opportunity to say that with any dentist anytime in my life! We joked, I was educated and I was UNAFRAID! Please if you experience this phobic condition...Your dental staff should care about you as a whole person, not just a mouth on a conveyor belt. Not only the fear was gone, But they do a great job with all of the dental procedures and it is not agonizing either! I am quite sure that I have found my forever dentist! Thanks to all of you at Dental Works in Northcross Village/Huntersville!"- C.T. / Google / May 03, 2018

What to Expect
In preparation for the bridge, our dentists will drill down the support tooth to allow enough space for the crown. After the teeth are made ready for the crown, X-ray imaging will be taken so that a thorough visual can be achieved and these, as well as the physical impressions will then be distributed to the dental lab where the final bridge is manufactured. Our dentists will cover the patient's teeth with temporary dental crowns for protection until the permanent bridge is ready. Once the bridge is created, our dentists will affix the bridge and adjust the fit for a normal appearance and comfort.
Dental bridges can stay durable for up to 15 years as long as diligent dental examinations at DentalWorks - Northcross Village in Huntersville, NC take place each year.
