Dental Bridges in Kenmore and Seattle

For people who live in Seattle and Kenmore, bridges are a daily part of life. Without them, getting around would be rather difficult. Dental bridges aren’t really that much different: without them, smiling confidently and eating comfortably can be a challenge. Dr. Taba expertly designs, crafts and places dental bridges that span the gap of missing teeth, so you can enjoy your smile once again.

If you’ve been dealing with tooth loss for some time, then you know the ramifications. The most obvious, of course, is your appearance when you smile, eat or laugh; just knowing that other people are seeing your missing teeth can make some people so uncomfortable, they begin to avoid social situations and business meetings. In your mouth, missing teeth can be the beginning of other problems, too, such as gum disease, tooth decay and shifting teeth. Moreover, tooth loss is one of the leading causes of malnutrition. If you aren’t able to chew certain foods—fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, nuts, grains—then your diet suffers. All in all, the need to replace missing teeth is important to your self-confidence, your oral health and your general health.

Seattle Bridges the Gap

Like the bridge across the Sammamish River, a dental bridge needs sturdy support on either end. This support is provided by abutment teeth, which are healthy teeth positioned alongside the gap in your smile. At your first appointment for a dental bridge, Dr. Taba will remove some of the tooth structure from these two teeth in order to make room for dental crowns. After these teeth are prepared, we’ll take an impression of them that is sent to our trustworthy dental lab where your crowns and bridge will be produced. While your permanent dental bridge is under construction, you’ll wear a temporary that Dr. Taba places at the conclusion of this preparatory appointment.

At the next appointment, Dr. Taba will remove the temporary and check to make sure that the permanent bridge fits precisely. A bridge needs to fit seamlessly alongside adjacent teeth as well as in opposition to the teeth above or below; we don’t want you to feel your dental bridge every time you bite down. Some minor adjustments may be necessary. Once your bridge is cemented into place, you’ll be able to immediately smile, talk and eat with confidence.

Stan A.

"I’ve been getting my teeth cleaned at Dr. Taba’s office for the past few years and love being greeted by all of the positive smiling faces when I walk in. I have very sensitive teeth and Dr. Taba and the hygienists are always SO gentle and take extra care to make sure I’m never in pain. Dr. Taba’s genuine care and love for his patients shines through his kind demeanor and great attention to detail. I can always trust him to get the job done exceedingly well and ease my anxiety about being at the dentist."

"I came for a cleaning, exam, and X-rays while they were having a special. All three for $112! It had been over a year since I had been to the dentist and I had a few cavities that I was already aware of that would need to be filled. The cavities where confirmed during the cleaning and nothing else was noticed. Overall the cleaning and exam went great. They have a great staff on hand, a wonderful view of Lake Washington while relaxing in their massaging chairs. I was able to schedule a follow up visit for the cavities a few days after. This appointment was great as well! I will return for future dental work."
