Having a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth can make you avoid smiling and cause difficulty or pain during chewing.
It can also cause the surrounding teeth to shift into unfavorable positions. Teeth behind the missing area can start to angle inwards and the opposing teeth can begin to over erupt.
Dental bridges are a great way to replace missing teeth. Your existing teeth are used as anchors to bridge the gap where your tooth is missing. They can be designed and fabricated from a variety of materials including gold, other metal alloys, and porcelain. For optimal esthetics, porcelain is a great material that will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.
The process can often be completed within two visits and you’ll be back to eating and smiling with ease. Call us today to have a consultation and get started!
