Trust My Family Dental Grosse Pointe For Your Dental Bridge

Missing teeth can impact more than just your smile. They can affect your ability to chew comfortably, cause speech impediments, and even contribute to bone loss in your jaw. If you’re missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge could be the solution you’ve been searching for. Some of the benefits of a dental bridge include:

  • Enjoying a wider variety of foods with restored chewing function.
  • Speaking clearly without worrying about gaps affecting your pronunciation.
  • Avoiding structural changes to your face by preventing bone loss and facial collapse.
  • Preventing shifting teeth by keeping your remaining teeth in their proper positions.
  • Improving your self-esteem by restoring your smile.

If you require a dental bridge, trust My Family Dental’s experts to provide exceptional care and personalized treatment options. We understand that each patient is unique, so we take the time to thoroughly review your options and tailor a treatment plan that meets your needs and fits your budget. With a focus on transparency and comfort, we’ll guide you through every step of your dental bridge journey.

What to Expect from the Dental Bridge Procedure

The dental bridge process will require two or more visits at our Grosse Pointe Woods, MI office. Here’s what you can expect when getting a dental bridge:

Initial Visit

We’ll start by numbing your teeth. This allows us to prepare the teeth adjacent to the bridge with minimal discomfort. Once numb, we’ll remove some enamel from the anchoring teeth to accommodate the crowns. Next, we will take an impression of your teeth. This impression will then be sent to a dental laboratory, where the bridge will be fabricated. Finally, we’ll create a temporary bridge for you to wear until your next appointment.

Second Visit

We’ll carefully check, adjust, and cement the permanent bridge to guarantee a proper fit. Depending on your dentist’s recommendation, the bridge may be temporarily cemented initially to allow your teeth and tissue to adjust. If the bridge is temporarily cemented, you’ll have another appointment to cement it permanently.


Following the placement of your dental bridge, it’s essential to maintain proper oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and regular visits to our Grosse Pointe Woods, MI office. These practices will help prolong the life of your new dental bridge.

Your Dental Bridge Questions

If you’re considering a dental bridge, you likely have questions. You can browse some of our commonly asked dental bridge questions here. If you don’t find the information you’re looking for, give us a call!

The dental bridge procedure typically involves minimal discomfort. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area during the preparation of the adjacent teeth and the placement of the bridge. After the procedure, there may be some mild soreness or sensitivity, but it can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

Candidates for dental bridges are individuals with one or more missing teeth who have healthy teeth adjacent to the gap that can support the bridge. Your dentist will assess your oral health and determine if a bridge is right for you.

Dental bridges can be made from various materials, including porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), all-metal (such as gold or alloys), and composite resin. Each material offers unique advantages in terms of aesthetics, strength, and durability. The choice of material depends on factors such as the location of the missing teeth, aesthetic preferences, budget considerations, and your dentist’s recommendations.
