Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are a type of dental restoration used to close the gap between missing teeth. Bridges connect two or more dental crowns or false teeth, and they are supported by natural teeth.

This dental appliance prevents your remaining healthy teeth from drifting so you can maintain the shape of your face. But apart from that, keep in mind that missing teeth can cause difficulty when you speak or chew which is why we usually recommend dental bridges to our patients here at Napa Valley Dental Group if they have missing teeth due to decay or accident.

The Procedure

The procedure will require at least two visits to our office here in Napa, CA. Each visit usually lasts for an hour or two.

  • During your first visit, your dentist will prepare the abutment teeth. Preparation involves reshaping these teeth by removing a portion of the enamel to make room for a crown to be placed on them.
  • After this, your dentist will make impressions of your mouth using dental putty. These impressions will be sent to our dental laboratory where your actual dental bridge will be made. The dentist will provide you with a temporary bridge to protect your teeth while waiting for your permanent bridge. Usually, it would take a week to finish manufacturing the bridge.
  • On your next visit, your dentist will remove the temporary bridge, ensuring that the site is thoroughly clean before they attach the permanent bridge. Before it is cemented, the dentist will check your bite several times to find out if any adjustments will be needed before it is permanently attached. After he is certain that the bridge perfectly fits, they will attach it to the abutment teeth using dental cement.

Your dentist will probably schedule you for check-ups so they can check the fit and function of your dental bridge. It is crucial to maintain good oral hygiene to protect the remaining natural teeth from tooth decay. The success of a dental bridge primarily depends on the foundation offered by the surrounding teeth. With good oral hygiene, dental bridges can last a long time.

If you have missing teeth, you don’t have to suffer any longer. Now, you can get a dental bridge. Please feel free to call our office at (707) 257-2400 to schedule an appointment. We are located at 2119 Jefferson St., Napa, CA 94559.

I’ve never experienced a friendlier, more organized, more effecient group of professionals in ANY medically focused office of any sort. If your appointment is at 10:00, expect to be called in no later than 10:01..

The price was right the staff was above and beyond. I also had a beautiful doctor Kumar taking care of me do it was s very pleasant experience. She did the tooth extraction flawlessly and I’m a big man with big teeth. I had read reviews before I chose this dentist and the 5 stars in my opinion aren’t enough. They have a repeat customer and after a couple of disappointments it’s nice to be able to say that. Thank you Yuvika and staff.

I have the good fortune of having Dr. Bhullar as my dentist in Napa, Ca. He has taken care of my entire family, even putting my daughter through braces. He has done Root canals and Crowns, fixed broken teeth, you name it. We trust his work and his advice completely, and all his work has been outstanding. Dr. Bhullar takes time to explain all the procedures. He explains all the pros and cons of the treatment so that I can make an independent judgment.His staff is also extremely helpful! From the moment, you walk in the door, you sense this is no ordinary dental office (Thank You Laura) for your patience and help in explaining everything. You guys are the BEST!

Honestly I’ve always been extremely skeptical of dental appointments and have had a few bad experiences, but I could not be more relieved when leaving my appointment today. I definitely felt “”taken care of”” by the quality of care I received as well as their extension of help in multiple aspects of what I needed.Very pleased and again, relieved
