Dental Bridges in Miami, FL
Dr. Renier Suarez and Dr. Teresa Suarez are experienced restorative dentists in Miami, FL. They are here to help you restore your smile following tooth loss. If you are missing one or more teeth, dental bridges are a cost-effective and efficient approach to tooth replacement.
Dental bridges rely on the external support of your surrounding dental structures. Often, we will cap your surrounding teeth using custom-made dental crowns to ensure that they are strong enough to support the bridge hardware. The bridge hardware will securely hold a prosthetic tooth in place of your missing tooth.
Because your bridge hardware will be fully external, you will need to take extra precautions to ensure it is not damaged. Avoid excessively chewy or crunchy foods to prevent damage. Additionally, you should brush and floss around and underneath your bridge hardware to prevent food residue from getting caught in the dental bridge and causing decay. Our doctors will demonstrate proper care methods following securing your dental bridge in place.
