Is your oral health affected because you're missing one or more teeth? If so, it's time to consider your tooth-replacement options. One beneficial option is a dental bridge. A dental bridge in College Station, Texas, is a replacement tooth that is fused to a pair of dental crowns. The crowns will lie on each side of the replacement tooth and will anchor onto the natural teeth that fill the gap in your mouth. If you take good care of the bridge, it can replace your missing tooth and enhance your smile for many years. Find out if a dental bridge is right for you by calling our office at 979-846-0082 and scheduling an appointment.
We look forward to helping you.
If you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth in a row, we may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration, meaning it is non-removable. The dental bridge is anchored in place by using two dental crowns, which are custom made to fit your smile and are placed on the teeth or dental implants next to the space left by the missing tooth. These crowns hold the artificial tooth in place to restore your smile, ensuring that your restoration will not easily shift or come loose. It typically requires only two visits to our practice to complete a dental bridge. Dental bridges are designed to last for many years and restore your smile's function, beauty, and health.
Our dentist may recommend a dental bridge to improve your smile by:
- Restoring your ability to speak, eat and chew normally.
- Alleviating excess stress on the bite.
- Improving the shape and volume of your face.
- Replacing an unwanted removable partial denture.
- Preventing the remaining natural teeth from moving out of position.
- Enhancing the appearance of your smile.
We will help you determine whether a custom dental bridge is a right choice for restoring your smile after tooth loss. For more information, please call or visit us today.
