The teams at Holistic Dental Centers’ offices in Cary and in Cornelius want you to enjoy a lifetime of oral health. To do this, we provide a wide range of dental services. From general check-ups and professional cleanings, to cosmetic enhancements and restorations, we can help you maintain a beautiful, healthy smile. Permanent dental bridges are one way we help patients who are missing teeth.
Permanent dental bridges can be used for patients who are missing one or several teeth. They are made of porcelain, which is a strong reliable dental material. Porcelain naturally contains many of the same characteristics as tooth enamel, which allows the restoration to fit in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. Porcelain bridges are custom made to color match the surrounding teeth. Dental bridges are a popular alternative to dental implants, which can be cost prohibitive for many patients. They can also replace temporary appliances such as removable partial dentures.
Many of our patients turn to dental bridges to restore their smiles after tooth loss. Whether due to decay or injury, tooth loss can affect many different functionalities of the mouth such as biting, chewing, and talking. In addition, the gaps left by missing teeth can allow room for remaining teeth to shift out of place. This can lead to more extensive and costly restoration in the future.
Permanent dental bridges are fixed structures within the mouth. The procedure involves bonding them to adjacent teeth in order to keep them in place. Care for your permanent dental bridge is important. Patients who maintain them can enjoy the benefits of this restoration for many years. Patients need to make sure to brush and floss properly along with eating a well-balanced diet.
Our team is committed to helping our patients who are missing teeth enjoy all of the beauty and functionality of natural teeth through the help of permanent dental bridges. Don’t put off replacing those missing teeth and end up with worse problems in the future. We welcome both new and returning patients. Call us today to schedule your initial consultation.
