Everyone deserves to have a beautiful, healthy smile. When tooth injury, decay, or disease leaves a gap in the smile, it is important for patients to have this corrected as soon as possible. Gaps in the smile can cause other teeth to move out of alignment and may lead to jawbone degeneration. In addition, missing teeth can affect the ability to bite, chew, and talk efficiently. If you are missing teeth and looking for a permanent solution, the team at Holistic Dental Centers invites you into the office to learn more about dental bridges.
At Holistic Dental Centers, we specialize in providing a range of restoration services to help people who have lost natural teeth. Dentures, implants, and bridges are ways that patients can restore beauty and functionality to their smiles. Patients who are searching for an effective and affordable solution to replace missing teeth often opt for dental bridges.
Dental bridges easily fill the gap where a tooth once resided. They are made of two crowns with a false tooth in the middle. The crowns placed over the adjacent teeth provide support for the restoration.
Digital impressions are taken of the mouth to be sent to a lab for custom fabrication of the porcelain bridge. Patients are fitted with a temporary restoration to wear in the interim. Once the final bridge is ready, patients will come in for permanent placement.
Unlike removable dentures, bridges are fixed, which makes them a popular solution for many patients. They are often more affordable the dental implants and can be color matched to existing teeth to blend in seamlessly. By replacing missing teeth with a permanent bridge, patients can help ensure they maintain their oral health.
For patients in and around the Cornelius area, Holistic Dental Centers offers preventative, restorative, and cosmetic solutions for the whole family. If you are suffering from missing teeth, or simply need to find a dentist you can trust, call us today to schedule your consultation. We can perform an initial examination and evaluation to help you come up with a solution that best meets your needs.
