Bridging The Gap

cosmetic dental Carlsbad

Do you have a missing tooth that is detracting from your otherwise pleasing smile? Let La Costa Dental Excellence fill the gap for you with a dental bridge.

A bridge consists of two or more crowns on either side of the gap created by your missing tooth. The neighboring teeth anchor a false tooth, holding it in place where the missing tooth should be.

The false tooth that is placed in the gap is called a pontic. Bridges can contain one or more pontics. A pontic can be matched to the surrounding teeth if you elect a porcelain material. If you’d like, a pontic can also be created using gold or an alloy.

At La Costa Dental Excellence, we work closely with you to make sure your bridge is an exact fit. One of our experienced hygienists will show you how to clean under and around the bridge to ensure that no tooth decay develops in the nooks and crannies.

At La Costa Dental Excellence, services include general and family dentistry, and a wide range of cosmetic dentistry procedures. Schedule an appointment today.
