Dental Bridges

When you have missing teeth, everyday tasks like chewing food and speaking can become difficult. A fixed porcelain bridge may be the perfect solution.

A fixed bridge is a prosthetic that is used to replace missing teeth for patients who still have some natural teeth. These natural teeth are used as “anchors” for the bridge to attach to on either side. An artificial tooth (called a pontic) fits in the space to “bridge” the gap. These fixed bridges look natural and allows patients to regain function.

Getting a fixed bridge takes several visits to our office. During your first appointment, the teeth to which your bridge will attach are prepared. Some of the tooth structure will be removed to allow for the crowns that will cover them. We will take impressions which will be sent to a dental lab where your bridge will be created. As soon as your bridge is complete, you will come back in to have it placed. Additional appointments may be required to get the perfect fit.

If you would like more information about bridges and how they can restore functionality, call us today at (248) 266-8581 to schedule an appointment.

Our Happy Patients

"I was going to another dentist who didn't quite get it... after switching to Dr. Shlafer I now know how THE BEST DENTIST ever operates! Dr. Shlafer first treated me for a bite-issue that would not go away. Soon after my first visit I was pain-free! Recently I had an area where food often got stuck - after Dr. Shlafer worked his magic I no longer have that issue. I drive all the way from Highland Township to see Dr. Shlafer -- and, it's well worth it. No matter where you live Dr. Shlafer is the ONLY dentist that I'd recommend. Thanks Doc!"

"The staff here is stellar. I've been going here for years now and have never had a bad experience. The women at the desk greet everyone by name, and the doctor remembers everything you tell him about yourself. Everyone here knows what they're doing, a trip here is never a hassle, and they'll always keep your best interest in mind."

"I am a patient of Dr. Shlafer and he has helped me tremendously. I had to have a lot corrective dentistry done and I sought out Dr. Shlafer to take on the challenge. I have told many people that he is a master in his field. He pays attention to the details and is extremely skilled in his craft way beyond normal denistry. I send all my friends and family to him especially if there is something out of the ordinary that needs to be done. He has advanced training and can take on serious issues."
