The Many Benefits of a Dental Bridge
Dr. Alexie Aguil may recommend a dental bridge for many reasons. A bridge is bonded to other teeth or implants to fill gaps in the mouth where a tooth is missing. We provide a few different types of dental bridges in our West Hollywood office. Some are meant to be kept in the mouth at all times while others can be taken out by the person wearing them.
By filling an area that was previously empty, bridges can:
- Restore the shape of your face. When teeth are missing, cheeks can appear sunken, or the mouth closes further than normal, causing the face to look squished a bit.
- Restore enunciation. Your teeth are an important part of proper pronunciation. Imagine making a “Th” sound without your front teeth, for example, and you can easily get the idea.
- Maintain strong teeth. Empty areas of your mouth can cause problems for the remaining teeth as well. Because there is now space where there were once teeth, the lack of pressure can lead to other teeth becoming loose and even falling out.
- Distribute pressure evenly. The pressure on teeth is evenly distributed when chewing if all teeth are present. When there is no tooth to fill in the gap, the added pressure accelerates the normal wear and tear on the remaining teeth.

A Los Angeles Dental Bridge for Better Living
Once you and Dr. Aguil have decided that a dental bridge is your best option, the next step is to prepare for bridge placement. In order to create a dental bridge matching your particular mouth and bite, Dr. Aguil will take an impression of your mouth. The result will be sent to a local dental laboratory where the high-quality bridge will be customized to perfectly fit your smile.
When you come in to have your dental bridge temporarily cemented, it may take a little longer than a filling. At Exquisite Dentistry, though, you can relax in our luxurious dentist chairs, put on comfortable headphones, and watch your favorite Netflix movie or show!
After the initial placement, you will need to come back for a follow-up visit to ensure that the dental bridge is solidly placed, comfortable and functioning properly. It will then be permanently cemented. With our day spa-quality experience, you’ll be glad to relax in our West Hollywood office one more time!

Since dental bridges are meant to replace sections of teeth, it is very important that they look and fit correctly. This is why finding the best dentist for dental bridges in Los Angeles will benefit you and your smile.
How Long Does A Dental Bridge Last?
Dental bridges often last 10 to 20 years, and some can last a lifetime with proper care. These devices are sturdy and strong to support chewing food. Proper dental hygiene can help you make a dental bridge last as long as possible.
What Alternatives Are There to Dental Bridges?
The primary alternative you have to a dental bridge is a dental implant. Dr. Aguil here at our dental practice in Los Angeles can help you decide whether a dental bridge or implant is best in your case.
What Happens if I Don’t Get a Dental Bridge?
You could choose not to get a dental bridge or implant at all, but we strongly advise against this. Living with a gap in your teeth will increase the rate of wear on your other teeth, causing damage and decay sooner. It will also be more difficult to chew and bite food.
What Is The Difference Between A Partial And A Bridge?
The significant difference between a partial and a bridge is that a partial covers one or more teeth, while a bridge covers an entire section of missing teeth. A full-mouth denture can replace all of your teeth, but it won’t cover them in one piece.
Is A Dental Bridge A Good Idea for Me?
Whether or not a tooth bridge is suitable depends entirely on you. If you’re thinking about dental bridges, schedule a consultation with Dr. Alexie Aguil at Exquisite Dentistry in Los Angeles, California.
