Are you interested in replacing your missing teeth? If so, your dentist, Dr. Scott A. Young, would like to tell you about a popular tooth-replacement option!

Dental bridges in Charlotte, North Carolina, are beautiful dental restorations that replace your missing teeth and provide long-term results without the need for surgery. The process involved in placing a dental bridge is easy and painless. It includes the following three steps:

Step 1: First, your dentist will numb your mouth with a local anesthetic so you will have a pain-free experience. Then, he will trim the outer layers of the teeth that are going to anchor the bridge in place. This will make room for the restoration.

Step 2: Then, he will make an impression of those teeth and will send the impression to the dental lab. The impression will serve as a guide for the lab technicians who are creating your bridge. As you wait for your restoration, you will be given a temporary bridge.

Step 3: When your bridge is ready, you will come back into our office for a second appointment. During this visit, your dentist will remove your temporary bridge and will cement your new bridge into place.

If you are interested in replacing your missing teeth with a dental bridge, please call Scott A. Young, DDS today at 704-541-5900 and schedule an appointment. We will be happy to meet with you and determine if a dental bridge is the best option for you. We look forward to helping you!
