Let us bridge the gap so you can smile with confidence again
Dr. Colleran and his team don’t want any San Luis Obispo residents to be limited because of missing teeth. If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth and would like a natural looking tooth replacement to get your smile back to its beautiful, well-functioning condition, a dental bridge could be the confidence boosting solution you have been looking for. Dental bridges are fabricated porcelain pieces that are either one tooth or multiple teeth. The bridge fills in the space where you are missing teeth. The bridge is typically bonded to the two adjoining teeth, for a flawless smile.
The struggle is real
We understand the struggles associated with missing teeth and urge you to consider coming to see us if you:
- Are missing a tooth or teeth
- Have teeth are moving or rotating on either side of a gap, causing discomfort
- Desire to chew normally again
- Would like a more stable alternative to a denture
- Want your restoration to look and function like your natural teeth
If you think a dental bridge might be a good option to solve your issue, Dr. Colleran and his team will take the time to explain the entire procedure and answer any questions you may have.
What is the process like?
First Dr. Colleran will prepare the anchoring teeth. This typically requires the removal of some enamel. Then, he will take impressions in order for the dental lab to fabricate a perfectly matched bridge.
You will be fit with a temporary bridge to protect the exposed teeth and gums while your permanent bridge is being made.
When your bridge is ready, Dr. Colleran will cement the permanent bridge into place.

- Teeth on either side of the gap will not be able to move
