Dental Bridges in Pflugerville, TX | Pecan St Dental
Dental bridges effectively replace missing teeth to provide tooth restoration and restore your smile’s appearance and chewing ability. With meticulous craftsmanship and high-grade materials, Dr. Prab creates natural-looking dental bridges that fit comfortably and function like natural teeth.
There are several types of bridges:
- Traditional fixed bridges use crowns on abutment teeth to anchor pontics that replace missing teeth.
- Cantilever bridges have crowns on one side and pontics extending to fill gaps.
- Maryland bonded bridges adhere pontics to abutment teeth without crowns.
The Imperative of Dental Bridges
When you lose one or more teeth, the surrounding abutment teeth can start to shift out of position. This may alter your bite alignment and cause speech or chewing difficulties. The gap left by the missing tooth also negatively impacts your smile’s symmetry and appearance.
A dental bridge offers an excellent tooth replacement solution using the remaining teeth to prevent these issues. Custom-fabricated pontics, or artificial teeth, are anchored to crowns on adjacent abutment teeth. This permanently fills the gap left by your missing tooth, restoring function and aesthetics.
Bridges maintain the positions of surrounding teeth and provide a solid base for biting and chewing. The pontics blend seamlessly with your natural teeth for a complete, confident smile. Dental bridges bring you the comfort and confidence of a full set of teeth.

What does the dental bridge process involve?
After the anchor teeth are prepared, impressions are taken to fabricate a customized new permanent bridge with artificial teeth. At the next visit, a temporary bridge is placed while the new permanent bridge is created. At the final visit, the new permanent bridge is placed and adjusted for proper fit, function, and aesthetics. The process takes about 2-3 visits total.
How long does recovery take after getting a dental bridge?
With minimal prep work on anchor teeth, most patients have little to no discomfort and heal quickly. Swelling can be managed with over-the-counter medication. Any tenderness or soreness usually goes away within a few days.
