What are dental bridges?

If you are missing one or more teeth, Dr. Brian Homann may suggest a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a non-removable dental appliance used to replace one or multiple lost teeth. Dental bridges use porcelain replacement teeth to bridge the empty space left by a missing tooth. A dental bridge is especially useful for replacing just one tooth or several teeth in a row. We will perform an in-depth examination to determine what type of dental bridge would benefit your smile most. We take great pride in making sure our patients get the solutions that will help them smile with confidence.

How are dental bridges put in?

A traditional dental bridge includes a replacement tooth called a pontic and two dental crowns. The teeth adjacent to the missing gap are prepared to receive the dental crowns, which will anchor the bridge into place. Once the crowns and pontic have been fitted and all final adjustments have been made, we will cement the dental bridge into place. Once the bridge is in place, you will be able to enjoy a beautiful smile again without worrying about what people think of the gap in your teeth.

What are the benefits of dental bridges?

Dental bridges are long-lasting tooth replacement options. In Elk Grove Village, Illinois, dental bridges are custom made to look like your natural teeth, so you can be confident that your smile looks naturally beautiful. When in place, the bridge can restore facial volume, enhance the beauty of your smile, and improve your ability to properly speak and eat.

Are dental bridges right for you?

Not everyone is a good candidate for a dental bridges. For instance, if you are missing a large number of teeth, a dental bridges aren’t isn’t the ideal solution for you. However, if you are only missing one tooth, a dental bridges are may be the perfect ideal chance to restore your smile. We will evaluate your dental health and the condition of your teeth and make the appropriate treatment recommendation. It’s our goal to ensure each of our patients is fully satisfied with the result of their treatment.

How effective are they?

One of the biggest concerns our patients have is how a dental bridges will affect the surrounding teeth. The truth is that even the undamaged teeth on either side of the gap must be altered in order to accept the anchor crowns. However, because the teeth are covered by crowns, they are typically well protected from normal chewing forces. With proper care, bridges have the potential to last years, or even decades.

Most caring dental staff I’ve ever encountered. Every experience has been extremely professional, from just calling to ask a question to cleanings for my whole family and beyond.

Dr. Homann goes out of his way to make sure you understand each step of the process and are comfortable the whole way. Each member of their team genuinely cares about their patients, and knowing I will have the best care every time I walk in the door makes going to the dentist a whole lot easier. Thank you to all the kind and wonderful staff, you make all the difference.

Dr. Homan is the best dentist I've ever been to. Most of my co-workers go to Dr. Homan and that's how I heard about him.

I needed a lot of work on my teeth and I'm so glad I found such a great dentist. He explains everything to you and also is very upfront on all posibiltys that's can happen to the tooth he works on and also explains what you can expect after the dental work. He's also very friendly and everyone at the office makes you feel comfortable. Karen and Sandra in the front office are wonderful as well. They also have wonderful dental hygienist. My insurance is not in network with Dr. Homan but it's well worth the extra money to still go to the best!

Dr. Homann's practice is very clean and up to date. His practice also has televisions to watch when you are getting your teeth cleaned or any other work done which is awesome!

The chairs are very comfortable and the staff is very polite. Dr. Homann is also a very knowledgeable dentist with the ability to make every patient feel calm and comfortable no matter what the situation. He also has done volunteer work for the homeless donating his time and resources to help the less fortunate, if that doesn't let you know what kind of practice this is I don't know what will. I will definitely be coming back here again!
