About Dental Bridges
When one or more of your teeth are missing, it's not just a cosmetic issue — missing teeth allow other teeth to shift out of place. This can result in more tension when biting, increased pain during chewing, or even the impairment of speech. A dental bridge improves the appearance and health of your mouth by filling in gaps using a false tooth, which will by held in place by either your natural teeth, an implant(s), or a combination of both. Our experienced team of board-certified dental professionals offers custom bridges made from the finest porcelain material to help repair your beautiful smile. If you have gaps in your smile, please schedule an appointment at MINT dentistry in Cypress, TX to get more information about your restoration options with dental bridges. Custom bridges can help rejuvenate your oral health and give you a smile that's dazzling.

"This place was amazing! From the moment you walk in till the moment I was walked up to the front, the staff continuously made sure I was doing fine. Every step of the appointment was explained to me so I knew exactly what to expect next. I was greeted with lots of smiles when I first walked in by the front desk Brandon. He gave me lots of mint goodies which I loved. Beats earphones, sunglasses, and an ipad. There was no wait time. Before I could even pick a movie on netflix I was already being brought back. The dental chair is a massage chair and it made me feel so relaxed. Catching up on my tv show and getting a massage while getting my teeth examined was so much fun. Dr. Tum did my exam, and she was quick and very knowledgeable. The assistants Carlos, Neta, Ashley, Areej were so quick and efficient with taking my xrays and whitening impressions. Lizzy the hygienist did my cleaning, and she was wonderful. She is very sweet, quick, and thorough. The office manager Jessica was fabulous right when you walked in she made me feel so important and comfortable. Jessica & Brandon the treatment coordinators was great! They were able to give me some great prices on my same day treatment! I had no choice but to stay for the same day treatment, bc the prices were unbeatable not to stay. The whole mint dentistry cypress team were amazing. They def exceeded my expectations, and I def recommend this dental office to anyone who is looking for a new dental home. Thank you Mint dentistry I can't wait to come back for my next routine visit!!! I'm glad I gave you guys a try. I left with whitening trays, sunglasses, chapstick, lipstick, and lots of oral hygiene tools...you can't beat that!"- J.N. / Google / Aug 14, 2019

Best Candidates for Dental Bridges
Often, those who have a missing tooth or teeth think it's nothing more than a cosmetic issue. However, there are many consequences that one or more missing teeth will have on your overall dental health. Your teeth are balanced carefully, so a missing tooth will impact the function of your mouth as well as your overall health. In time, a large gap can allow your teeth to move, leading to bite problems (an underbite, overbite, crossbite), as well as atrophy in your gums and jawbone. To hold the bridge, your surrounding teeth need to be strong. You will also need healthy gums and enough jawbone density. Our team will assess your mouth at your exam and consultation before creating a personalized plan for treatment that will restore your smile.
What to Expect with Dental Bridges
After your mouth is prepped for your restoration, one of our skilled dental professionals will take impressions and digital x-rays of your mouth so your custom bridge can be crafted. To protect your teeth, a temporary bridge or restoration can be used while your custom restoration is completed. When your restoration is ready, your procedure will be scheduled by our support staff. Before beginning your appointment, we will invite you to relax in a plush, massaging treatment chair. Once you've put on a pair of Beats headphones and MINT sunglasses, certain areas of your mouth will be anesthetized with numbing cream to minimize discomfort. Stronger sedation methods are available upon request if you have any dental anxieties or a strong gag reflex. Your bridge will either attached to the implant posts or cemented to the surrounding teeth based on the support selected at your initial consultation. A member of our team will carefully fit your restoration, so it fits snugly in place and feels natural.
Dental Bridges Treatment Aftercare
Once your bridge is in place, you should notice an immediate improvement in the appearance and function of your teeth. If your bridge feels off in the weeks after the initial placement, you should schedule a follow-up appointment at MINT dentistry. A member of our team will show you how to care for your new restoration, particularly how to properly clean it. It's important to keep your mouth and bridge clean because cavities can still form below the restoration. With optimal care, your restoration should help for a long time. You should continue to schedule regular appointments at our office for your yearly oral examination and twice yearly professional cleanings. At your check-ups, our team will monitor the condition of your restoration to determine if it should be fixed or if you need a new one.
