Dental Bridges

Dental Bridges Buford, GA

Dental Bridges

When you lose one or more teeth, you can feel self-conscious about your smile. Gaps can be embarrassing, but they can do more than just mar your appearance. Once one tooth is gone, the other teeth can begin to shift. Not only can this create crooked and misaligned teeth that are less attractive, they can be more difficult to clean. Dental bridges are one of the cosmetic dentistry options available at Buford Family Dental to replace missing teeth while giving permanent support to your existing teeth for a healthier smile.

Dental bridges use your natural teeth to hold an artificial tooth, or pontic, in place. There are several different types of dental bridges, but the most common use the teeth on either side of a missing tooth to support the pontic that fills the gap. Pontics look similar to a dental crown and are designed to fit and align with your other teeth. They are connected to the surrounding teeth with bridgework that goes behind the teeth out of sight, creating a new, secure replacement tooth.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges can help give your natural teeth support while replacing your missing tooth or teeth. Once in place, the pontic helps stabilize the other teeth, keeping them from shifting. To create the bridge, dental crowns are placed on the abutment teeth on either side of the missing tooth. The bridgework is attached to the dental crowns, holding the artificial tooth in place. Once completed, the crowns and pontic look like a natural part of your smile. The bridgework is fixed in place, so the pontic will not move or slip, offering stable function for chewing and talking.

At Buford Family Dental, we offer several options for restoring missing teeth. Whether you need one tooth or many teeth replaced, we have options available, including dental bridges. Contact us today to schedule your dental restoration appointment.

I chipped my tooth at 1:30pm. I called them at 2:20, and they had me in at 3:30pm. They close at 4:30. I was given the option to place a crown on my tooth that day, or make an appointment for another day. I chose to do it that day, and it was done with a smile! It was Dr. Patel’s birthday, AND he stayed past closing to assist me. The staff was very accommodating, pleasant, and knowledgeable about solutions to the problem. I highly recommend this office!

I would highly recommend this dentist office to anyone that I know. Dr. Patel took lots of time on my initial visit to answer all of the questions that I had and was very gentle and precise during my procedure. I also had a root canal done by Dr. Finot and it could not have gone any better as far as root canals go. You can tell that he has done countless root canals and the procedure is being conducted flawlessly. Thank you Buford Family Dental!

This place is awesome!! I took my teenage daughter for a root canal, and the dentist was so gentle, she fell asleep during the procedure. It’s a warm and welcoming environment, and everyone makes you feel right at home. I’m so glad I chose this place, and I would recommend Buford Family Dental to anyone.

Dr Patel takes pride in his craft! Everyone was thorough, kind, and no lectures! They took extra care to be sure I was comfortable and understood the treatment plan. I had minimal discomfort on the cleaning and fillings. We took breaks as needed and they were not shy with anesthetic! They were also on point with verifying my insurance so I knew exactly what was covered and what my cost would be. I'm so happy with the work I had done and would gladly recommend Dr. Patel and Sharon (hygienist) to anyone seeking a dentist who genuinely cares about his/her patients!
They truly have no idea the positive impact they have had on my long road to recovery. Thank You!!!

Buford Family Dental is the definition of perfection! I’ve been looking for a dentist for a couple of years now after being in Georgia and I’m glad I found BFD! Dr. Patel and his staff go above and beyond every visit. The office has been upgraded and refreshed since Dr. Patel and his staff have taken over. Very well trained and educated staff in the building. This is my go to Dentist from here on out! Thanks to all the staff at Buford Family Dental!

Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. They were able to get me an appointment same day for a dental emergency. They made sure I knew everything that eased going on. I will definitely return.

I was suffering from severe pain from a tooth that I failed to take care of, to the point that 800mg Ibuprofen wouldn’t even help. I went to another dentist first and came to Buford Family Dental for a second opinion. What separated them from the others was the transparency. They showed me pictures, x-rays and gave me a lot of useful information to soak in prior to deciding on a root canal. The procedure was smooth, pain free and so far, effective. I’ll be returning to have a permanent crown put in place.

I had 3 cavities and the dentist did a great job. Not only was the office clean but I was taken in immediately with no wait time. the dentist is very professional and knows what he's doing. I was in and out of the office in less than an hour. I highly recommend this dentistry.
