Dental bridges, that literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth, are a long-established treatment choice to replace teeth when they are lost. The talented dentists at Washington Center for Dentistry in Washington, DC will place 2 or more crowns on either side of the gap as the anchoring teeth, and they are attached to the false tooth or teeth in between. Dental bridges are made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these cosmetic dentistry materials, and are supported by natural teeth or implants. Bridges are a great way to not only restore the teeth but to restore confidence and self-esteem as well.

"My oral/dental examination was very thorough, including checking lymph nodes, TMJ, tongue and oral cavity cancer screening. Reviewing my x-rays, Dr. Deutsch pointed out several interesting things, and I learned something new about my teeth."- A.Z. / Google / Apr 30, 2017
"Dr Deutsch has been my dentist for the last 25 years! I love his staff, love his office, and love him. At this point I've seen most of his colleagues too and they are fantastic as well. When I came to D.C. 26 years ago, I went to a recommended dentist close to my then-office, who told me that I would have to come in every three months for cleanings and that I was going to need tons on work. I was shocked: back in my hometown, my dentist had always told me I had great teeth and a healthy mouth. I went to Dr Deutsch for a second opinion (which was that I had - and have to this day - great oral health) and have never looked back."- M.L. / Facebook / Apr 28, 2017

Dental Bridge Process@headingTag>
During the first visit for getting a dental bridge, the abutment teeth are prepared. Preparation involves recontouring these teeth by removing a portion of enamel to allow room for a crown to be placed over them. Next, impressions of the teeth are made, which serve as a model from which the bridge, pontic and crowns will be made by a dental lab. Your dentist will make a temporary bridge to wear to protect the exposed teeth and gums while the bridge is being made.
During the second visit, your temporary bridge will be removed and the new porcelain or metal bridge will be checked and adjusted, as necessary, to achieve a proper fit. Multiple visits may be required to check the fit of the metal framework and bite. This is dependent on each individual’s case. If the dental bridge is a fixed bridge, your dentist will make sure it is fitting properly and cement it in place after a couple of weeks.
