Dental BridgesAn Overview
A patient with one or more missing teeth may choose to restore their smile using a dental bridge. A dental bridge allows our patients to eat and speak normally without the need for special oral hygiene.
Claremont Dental Institute uses state-of-the-art digital imaging and design software to create high-quality, life-like dental bridges. Modern dental materials mimic the enamel of human teeth, creating a flawless replacement for missing teeth.
Our team of skilled dentists uses their artistic eye, precision, and skill to design refined dental bridges that will fit comfortably. We will help you improve the overall appearance and function of your smile.
We can use bridges and crowns to improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, alignment, and dental occlusion or bite. Gaps left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, resulting in a bad bite. Bridges and crowns help prevent this from happening.
The appearance of your smile is essential to living your best life. Missing or damaged teeth can cause you to hide your smile and may impact your quality of life. Missing teeth can also hurt your self-esteem as well as your oral health.
Replacing missing teeth with our quality dental restorations will improve the function of your bite. We can also prevent bone loss and damage to the jaw.
Why should I replace my missing teeth using a dental bridge?
Missing teeth can cause a number of problems including difficulty in eating, speaking, and affect the look of your smile. However, replacing your missing teeth with a dental bridge is an effective and long-lasting solution.
A traditional dental bridge is a dental prosthesis that our dental office provides to replace one or more of your missing teeth. It consists of two crowns that fit on either side of the gap left by the missing tooth or teeth. One or more false teeth, or pontics, connect the two dental crowns. Our dentist secures the traditional dental bridge in place with cement or metal clasps.
A dental bridge can improve your ability to chew food properly, prevent gum disease and reduce stress on remaining natural teeth.
It’s important to consult with our Claremont dentist to discuss if this treatment option is right for you. Our dentist will explain the procedure in detail, as well as provide information about any potential risks. We will help you make an informed decision about replacing your missing teeth using a dental bridge, so don’t hesitate to schedule a visit today.
