Have you been doing some serious homework when it comes to deciding which tooth replacement solution is right for you? We understand that this can take a lot of thought and consideration, which is why we suggest narrowing down your options and focusing on the benefits. For instance, if you are missing one tooth or up to three teeth in a row, a dental bridge may offer the advantages you have been seeking and may be appropriate for your tooth loss pattern. Wondering if a bridge is your best choice? Learn more about how it may benefit your smile and compare it to other prosthetics for a better idea.
A dental bridge offers wonderful stability because it is “fixed.” This is unlike dentures, which are “removable.” A fixed prosthetic is simply one that remains in place 24/7. We will use a special cement to bond the bridge in place.
Beautiful, Lifelike Finish
A bridge is comprised of a series of artificial teeth. The teeth on either end (which rest over your natural teeth for support) are called dental crowns. The teeth between the crowns are called pontics. We will use lifelike material, such as porcelain, to craft these replacement teeth. In addition, we will color-match them to blend with the remaining teeth in your smile for a seamless result.
When you decide to replace your teeth, you want your teeth replacement to last a long time. Good news: Dental bridges can last 15 years (sometimes longer). All it takes is staying on top of your preventive care (brushing, flossing, and preventive visits) to keep your smile and prosthetic in good condition.
