Replace Your Missing Teeth with CEREC Same-Day Dental Bridges
Even though tooth loss affects oral function and beauty, most people don’t have the time for multiple dental appointments to fix the gap. To accommodate your busy schedule, Dr. Marcella Guzman and the team at A Brush Above Family Dentistry offer CEREC same-day dental bridges in Chicago, Illinois, to replace missing teeth in one visit.
What are CEREC single-visit bridges?
A dental bridge comprises artificial teeth, known as pontics, supported by healthy teeth, referred to as abutments, on either side of the gap. The abutment teeth are reinforced with dental crowns to ensure a secure fit. It’s important to note that getting a traditional bridge typically involves multiple dental appointments, which can span several weeks or even months.
CEREC dental bridges can restore your smile in just a single visit and take only a few hours to complete. Using CEREC technology, Dr. Guzman and the team can prepare, craft, and place your dental bridge and crowns while you wait!
This is possible because our office has in-house capabilities to design and fabricate your restorations using cutting-edge technology. CEREC’s computer-aided design (CAD) unit helps us design your crown and bridge to your smile’s precise specifications. Our in-house milling machine manufactures your restorations within minutes as you relax in our waiting room.
How CEREC dental bridges work
The process begins with an initial consultation to determine your suitability for dental bridges. Then, we prepare your abutment teeth before taking digital scans to compute your gap’s dimensions.
Next, we use the CAD unit to design your dental bridge and crowns. Once the design is approved, we use the in-house milling machine to carve your restorations from a ceramic block. When your dental bridge and crowns are ready, we try their fit and make adjustments until your bite feels natural. Finally, we secure the dental bridge on your teeth using dental cement.

A bridge is a non-surgical way to replace one or many teeth. A bridge uses the adjacent teeth as anchors to support the missing tooth or teeth. With today’s dental advancements, a bridge can be fabricated in a fairly short period of time, using a metal or nonmetal foundation. Don’t let that missing tooth affect the way you speak, eat, and smile. Bridges yield immediate results that last a lifetime. Ask your dentist what type of bridge may be right for you.
