Dental Bridges – Lady Lake, FL
A Non-Surgical Solution to Restoring Smiles
At RP Dental & Implants, Dr. Patel and Dr. Wadsworth believe patients with missing teeth should have options. While there are certainly other ways to replace one or more consecutive teeth along an arch (i.e., partial denture, dental implants), you may not be too keen on the idea of surgery or having a “denture” just yet. Fortunately, there is another solution that is effective, long-lasting, and natural in appearance – a dental bridge. Customized according to your individual needs, our team will go above and beyond to ensure your missing teeth are replaced with a beautiful prosthetic that blends in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

What are Dental Bridges?
A dental bridge is a customized prosthetic that is designed to replace a single tooth or multiple consecutive teeth in a row. Using the two healthy abutment teeth on either side of the gap as anchors for your prosthetic, we will alter these teeth to ensure a proper fit once the bridge is put into place. By choosing a dental bridge to replace your missing teeth, you can prepare to enjoy a stronger bite force that withstands the daily wear and tear you place on your teeth, and you’ll feel much more confident because you’ll have a complete, functional smile once again.
The Dental Bridge Placement Process
At RP Dental & Implants, you can count on our team to take care of you throughout your procedure. If necessary, we can provide sedation dentistry to help you feel more at ease. To begin, we will file down the adjacent teeth to make it easier for the customized bridge to fit perfectly into place once it is ready to be secured. We will then take impressions of your smile that will be sent to a local dental lab. There, technicians will fabricate your prosthetic based on the blueprint provided by our team. Making sure to match the color, size, and shape to your natural teeth, the dental bridge should fit in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
It typically takes several weeks before the final prosthetic is ready, so you will receive a temporary to wear in the meantime. Once we receive your final bridge, you will return to our office to have it put into place. We will use a special bonding agent to cement the prosthetic, giving you a healthier, more beautiful smile.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Bridges?
Dental bridges have been around for decades or longer. Millions of individuals have enjoyed the benefits of these prosthetics simply because they do not require surgery, and they offer a much easier way to achieve a full, complete smile.
Many of the most common advantages that come with dental bridges include:
- Greater bite force when eating and chewing

- An effective way to keep your healthy teeth in place, preventing them from shifting and causing potential alignment issues
