Are you ready to bridge the cap in your mouth with beautiful, straight teeth? If so, Dr. Philippe Athuil offers bridges in Beverly Hills, California, that does the job!
A bridge is made of two crowns on each side that act as anchors. There are false teeth between the two crowns that can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. These bridges have the ability to:
• Restore your smile
• Maintain the shape of your face
• Replace the missing teeth to give you a better bite
• Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of place
• Restore your ability to properly chew and speak
This process can include two or more visits to the dental practice of Philippe Athuil, DDS, and the first visit involves the preparation of the abutment teeth. This involves your dentist removing a portion of the tooth that requires crown placement to secure the bridge. After the teeth are trimmed, he will make impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab to be custom made for you. Your dentist will give you a temporary bridge to wear between visits. Your second visit will include your dentist removing the temporary bridge and checking and adjusting the new bridge. It might take multiple visits to find the perfect fit, but once you love the feeling of the new bridge, it will be permanently cemented into place.
