What You Should Know about Dental BridgesDental bridges are comprised of one or more artificial teeth mounted onto a metal frame. The frame fits over the patientâ€™s existing teeth on either side of the gap. The artificial teeth in a bridge are typically constructed of a porcelain dental material, often the first choice by both dentists and patients because of its durability and because the porcelain can be made to very closely match the patientâ€™s natural teeth. Generally speaking, there are two types of dental bridges available: fixed (non-removable) and those that can be removed by the patient for cleaning.
The Dental Bridge ProcedureGetting a new dental bridge will usually require at least two visits to our office. The first step involves making an impression of the teeth on either side of where the patient is missing teeth. This impression will be used by a dental lab to create the bridge. The next step takes place after the permanent bridge is ready. Dr. Argandona will fit the patient with the new bridge, taking time to ensure that it fits properly, that itâ€™s comfortable for the patient, and that it doesnâ€™t negatively impact the patientâ€™s natural bite.

Great experience at Live Oak in Leander! Friendly staff, the Dental Hygienist Janine was great and very sweet. The dentist Priscila Donangelo was amazing – very knowledgeable, attentive, explained me everything that was going on and need to be done.
Dr. Argandoña and Dr. Donangelo are both great dentists and are also very caring. They are thorough but not pushy and they try to explain everything very well. I have also found both of them to be gentle, warm and compassionate, as well as accessible when I need them!
