Kirkland, WA area patients fix a gap between the teeth with dental bridges

Dental Bridges for Teeth Gap in Kirkland area

The impact tooth loss and extraction have on the smile is significant. When Kirkland, WA area patients are faced with missing or extracted teeth, it is critical that they seek restoration as soon as possible. This helps ensure that the remaining teeth do not shift out of place and maintain a properly functioning smile. Additionally, restoring the smile immediately after tooth loss can make it seem as though the tooth loss never even happened! Gaps between the teeth can be resolved with a dental bridge.

What are dental bridges?

Dr. Ann Kelley describes the dental bridge as a tooth replacement created from porcelain. This restoration includes false teeth fused to dental crowns on each side. The crowns are bonded onto the adjacent teeth for support, essentially helping to “bridge the gap” between the teeth. It restores the beauty and function of the smile for a patient, which can dramatically change their quality of life!

Why choose dental bridges?

There are a variety of tooth replacement options available for patients to consider. But how do you know if a dental bridge is right for you? During an initial evaluation and consultation appointment with Dr. Ann Kelley, patients can determine if they are a good fit for a dental bridge. Many patients end up choosing dental bridges because they are:

  • Affordable
  • Effective
  • Natural-looking
  • Long-lasting
  • Permanent
  • Easy to care for

When patients choose to have dental bridges placed, they need to have the adjacent teeth prepared for the placement of the crowns. This requires the removal of some tooth structure surrounding the teeth. Impressions are made and used to create the final bridge to ensure a proper fit. The laboratory fabricates a dental bridge that matches the remaining teeth in color, shape, and size for a natural appearance. When complete, the bridge is bonded in place, and patients are educated on how to care for their restorations to extend their longevity.

 - 5 Star Rating Review By Kathy W Dr. Kelley and her staff are a treasure. State of the art equipment, As a past Dental Administrator for a very large practice in Lynnwood, am soo happy to know that Dr. Kelley, her hygenists who have been there for over 20 years, are bar none the most indepth and through a cleaning as you would ever find. I have never felt more then a slight prick when getting novocaine. Between numbing the gum and gentle procedure they also offer nitroux, for us real scaredy cats. Music, neck pillows and blankets all make the experience truly enjoyable. I had gone too many years neglecting my teeth and found through Tammy, my hygenist and Dr. Kelley they were able to put together a plan to save the teeth they could and design partials for the ones I could not afford to save. I am a small business owner with no insurance and yet they came up with a plan that I am so happy with. I am without any infection, so much healthier and the partials Dr. Kelley designed are like a second skin. From Jackie and MaryAnn at the front desk to the assistants, hygenists and Dr. Kelley you will be in professional and caring hands. I recommend to all my family and friends.
