About Dental Bridges
A bridge fills in the gap 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 - Reynoldsburg in Reynoldsburg, OH 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.

"This is the greatest dental place I ever went to. You can schedule an appointment on the spot rather than requesting and waiting for one. The reason I went was for my bf who was having a bad toothache which was an emergency. Doctor came and his assistant and explain very clearly what was happening. They are the best and wonderful people. Once we checked out. the lady explained the billing and helped us understand. Very reasonable price and told us what to do or needed to be done. My bf and I went out of the building with a very big smile and relief. Great Place and People!"- K.L. / Google / Oct 30, 2017

What to Expect
In preparation for the bridge, our dentists will drill down the support tooth to make enough space for the crown. After the teeth are 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 fixtures for protection until the permanent bridge is ready. Once the bridge is created, our dentists will attach the bridge and adjust the fit for a normal appearance and comfort.
