Your teeth help you talk, eat, and smile. When you lose one or more teeth because of disease, an accident, or genetics, you don’t have to live with an incomplete smile. In addition to general dentistry services, Timothy D. Calkins, DDS offers dental bridges in Lincoln, NE. With his help, you can resume these daily activities with confidence in your appearance.
We want you to be as informed as possible when it comes to your dental options. Before you schedule your appointment for dental bridges in our Lincoln, NE office, you should learn how they can improve your smile. While other options exist to help with tooth replacement, a bridge can be a wonderful solution. Depending on the circumstance, other treatment recommendations may be made such as implants with crowns or in conjunction with bridges or dentures. Ask any question that comes to mind about what dental solutions we have recommended for you.
Dental bridges can close small or large gaps between existing teeth. Dr. Calkins uses crowns on natural teeth and a fake tooth in between any gaps to create a seamless look.
Many people believe that bridges are purely cosmetic. While dental bridges do restore your smile, they also have other health benefits. Getting a bridge can restore your face shape, help you chew and speak with less pain, and keep your natural teeth in proper position.
You may wonder if your dental bridges will feel and act like your natural teeth. Bridges are meant to restore your smile to its natural state. After we fill in the gaps between your teeth, you’ll notice that daily activities such as speaking and eating become easier and can be performed with confidence. You can care for your bridge the same way you would care for normal teeth: with a healthy brushing and flossing routine, morning and night.

“I have been a patient of Dr. Calkins for over 20 years. All of my kids have gone to him since they were toddlers. Very conservative in his approach, never tries to do an expensive treatment if it isn’t necessary. Great at giving numbing shots, can’t even feel the needle.”
“I’ve been going to Dr. Calkins for several years and will continue to do so. Tim is very professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and patient. I very much appreciate the time he takes to educate me about dental health, to show me my x-ray, or to explain a procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Calkins and his excellent team.”
“You know when you come back from your dentist feeling good you know you’ve picked the right one. I could go to any dentist in Lincoln but Dr. Calkins and his staff are it for me. After seeing him for over 20 years I’ve always been treated as if I’m his only patient. Who feels strongly enough about their dentist to actually post?”
