Your smile can say a lot about you, but if you're missing a tooth or two, you may find yourself having trouble with more than just your appearance. Fortunately, there are many ways to approach this issue, and dental bridges are one of the most lasting options. If you’re interested in filling any gaps in your smile, a dental bridge can accomplish it with surprising ease.
Dental bridges serve to fill the space missing teeth create. One or more artificial teeth are attached to dental crowns on either side, and the teeth around it receive the crowns to act as anchors, keeping the false tooth in place. There are a few variations that allow teeth to be replaced in many different situations.
At Storts Family Dentistry, you can forego the typical temporary restoration and frustrating waits associated with the procedure. We offer same-day services via CEREC technology that will create a bridge fitted to your teeth and speed up the entire process.
If you’re missing any teeth and find yourself having trouble chewing or speaking, a dental bridge can sometimes remedy your problems. Not only will a bridge “complete” your smile in a natural-looking way, but it will also improve your ability to use your mouth as usual and protect your teeth from damage caused by unequal force distribution. Over time, you’ll also avoid your remaining teeth shifting and distorting the shape of your smile. Bridges can last several years or more, so they make an excellent long-term solution.
Whether you’re ready to receive a dental bridge or still have questions, Storts Family Dentistry will work with your needs and help you make the best decision for your teeth.
