Carlson Bridges

A bridge is the traditional option for replacing a missing tooth. It’s made by cutting down the teeth on each side of the gap to support crowns that hold a false tooth in between.

But why sacrifice two perfectly healthy teeth?

Carlson bridgeWith the Carlson Bridge, this is no longer necessary. For this minimally-invasive procedure, we only need to prepare the surfaces of those two abutment teeth. We don’t have to cut away any living tissue.

We then attach the false tooth – known as a “winged pontic” – to those teeth with composite, and shape, shade, contour and adjust the bridge as needed so it both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

Unlike other bridgework, the Carlson Bridge can be completed in a single visit here at Green City Dental.

Here’s an up-close view of how the procedure is done – and how the end result looks:
