About Dental Bridges
A bridge closes in the gap between the teeth with a porcelain tooth that is attached to a crown, which is created to form over the attaching tooth. The fake tooth connects to the crown with a pontic. Our dentists offer several options for bridges at Eagle Point Dental Care in McKinney, TX including, a cantilever bridge that covers the connected crown; a Maryland bridge, referred to as a resin-bonded bridge that attaches the fake tooth with extensions; or a crown that incorporates framework cemented to the nearby natural teeth.

"We had changed providers because our insurance now provides Dental coverage. We called Eagle Point in December as they were a provider with our Insurance and made an appointment for April. When we arrived at Eagle Point, they said there was no appointment for us. They were able to confirm our insurance and 'worked' us in anyway. The staff and Doctor were great. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a Dentist."- J.M. / Google / Apr 19, 2019
What to Expect
To prepare the teeth for the bridge, our dentists will file down the abutment tooth to make enough room for the crown. Once the teeth are ready for the crown, X-ray imaging will be made so that a full visual can be achieved and these, along with the physical impressions will then be distributed to the lab where the final bridge is manufactured. Our dentists will fit the patient's teeth with temporary fixtures for protection until the final bridge is ready. When the bridge is created, our dentists will attach the bridge and adjust the fit for a natural appearance and comfort.
Professional bridges for the teeth can stay durable for years as long as routine dental examinations at Eagle Point Dental Care in McKinney, TX take place each year. It is also crucial that in addition to professional cleanings, patients focus incorporate a consistent at-home dental health regime. Per the dentist's instructions, brushing twice a day and flossing, which will allow the dental work to last for many years to come.
Coverage through insurance generally takes care of a decent portion of the total fee for professional bridges. The exact coverage will depend on the insurance plan, but our insurance coordinators at Eagle Point Dental Care will coordinate with your provider to gain insight as to what the patient may owe. Our office accepts a variety of insurance plans. Individuals without insurance may take part in one of our billing programs.
