When patients are faced with missing teeth in the Charlotte area, they are often unsure where to turn for help. Dr. Carl McMillan prepares the teeth on each side by removing some of the enamel. Many patients may want to find out more about the benefits of dental bridges.
Dental bridges are common in restorative dentistry. These porcelain restorations are custom-made for patients to ensure they match the existing teeth within the smile in both shape and color. Our team wants patients to enjoy restorations that look natural and do not stand out as dental work, which is why we use only the best dental laboratories for the fabrication of our restorations.
Dental bridges are made with pontics (false teeth) fused to a dental crown on each side for placement. Dr. Carl McMillan prepares the teeth on each side by removing some of the enamel. This ensures the placement of the dental crowns does not add unnecessary bulk and fits precisely over the adjacent teeth. Impressions are made and then sent to the dental laboratory for the creation of the dental bridges. Once the bridges are completed, typically within about a week, patients return to the dental office for placement and leave with a newly restored smile!
Dr. Carl McMillan of Cary and Cornelius Holistic Dental Centers wants individuals to learn about the ways in which they can achieve a more beautiful, fully functioning smile.
