Dental bridges Ottawa

We offer dental bridges to replace missing or damaged teeth and restore your smile. Book a visit to find out if a dental bridge is right for you.

Replace missing teeth and smile with confidence

Dental bridges are dental restorations that close or “bridge” the gap in your smile caused by missing or severely damaged teeth. With the help of dental bridges, we can restore the appearance and function of your teeth.  

You’ll be able to smile, chew, and speak more confidently. Dental bridges can also be shade-matched and contoured to blend beautifully with your natural smile.

Dental bridge process in Ottawa

Step 1: Consult with a dentist

The first step for getting dental bridges in Ottawa is to talk to your dentist. They will perform an exam and assess whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure.

Step 2: Local anesthetic

Your dentist numbs the area with local anesthetic, so that the procedure is as pain-free and comfortable as possible.

Step 3: Teeth preparation

The abutment teeth are shaped to fit the bridge.

Step 4: Dental impressions

Your dentist takes impressions of the abutment teeth. At our Ottawa dental clinic, we use a scanner to take digital impressions of your teeth, rather than gooey clay impressions. You may receive a temporary bridge to protect your mouth while your permanent bridge is being made.

Step 5: Bridge creation

At this point, some dental offices will ship your impressions to a lab for bridge creation. At Merivale Dental Centre, we use CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) technology to create your bridge on site in one or two visits.

Step 6: Bridge placement

Your dentist cements your new bridge to the abutment teeth. Before you go, they’ll advise you on home care for your dental bridge, which will typically be similar to how you care for your natural teeth: brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups.

CEREC technology

Our Ottawa dental office uses CEREC technology to design and create your dental crowns and bridges in one or two visits. CEREC uses both computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to carve custom-designed dental crowns on site. This allows us to restore your smile faster.
