Do you have one or more missing teeth in your mouth that create an unwanted gap and an incomplete smile? Well, Dr. David A. Browne is here to give you the smile you have always wanted by giving you the option of using a dental bridge!

A dental bridge in McHenry, Illinois, is made of one or more crowns that are placed over the remaining natural teeth on both sides of the gap. Between these crowns are false teeth that will replace your missing teeth and restore the appearance of your smile. A dental bridge has the ability to:

  • Maintain the shape of your face
  • Restore your smile
  • Give you the ability to properly chew and speak again
  • Prevent remaining natural teeth from drifting out of place

The process of installing the dental bridge will require two visits to David A. Browne, DDS, PC. Your first visit will involve your dentist numbing your mouth with a local anesthetic and shaving the surfaces of your natural teeth on both sides of the gap. When they are the correct size and shape, your dentist will make impressions of the teeth and will send them to a lab where your bridge will be created. While you wait for your new bridge, you will be given a temporary bridge to give you the full functionality you need. Your second visit will involve your dentist checking and adjusting the bridge to make sure it provides the perfect fit. When he finds the correct placement, the bridge will be permanently cemented into the mouth.
