What are dental bridges?
A bridge is a dental device used to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges consist of fake teeth held in place by crowns, implants, or porcelain framework adjacent to the missing tooth.
Traditional bridges are the most common, containing one or more fake teeth that are held in place by posts and dental crowns on both sides.
Other bridges attach to a crown on one side of a missing tooth or metal framework attached to the surrounding teeth. For men and women with several missing teeth, implant-attached bridges are another option.
Dental bridges offer many cosmetic and structural benefits — they can:
- Correct your bite
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Prevent remaining teeth from shifting
- Restore your ability to chew and speak
- Revitalize your smile
Cosmetic Dental Bridges
Cosmetic bridges are a great procedure used to restore areas that are missing multiple teeth. They hide the gaps caused by missing teeth, improve the appearance of your smile, and promote the overall health of your entire mouth. Whenever there is a missing tooth and the gap is left wide open, your jaw is in serious risk of bone loss. Teeth act as anchors in the jaw, that stabilize the bone; therefore, when a large gap is present, the jawbone’s stability can become compromised.
Cosmetic bridges are made around 2 posts that hold together the group of crowns. Cosmetic dental bridges are great to restore your oral health as they keep bone structure in place and keep your other teeth healthy for years to come. Dentistry of Highland Village offers the highest quality services for patients who need or want to have cosmetic dental bridges. Contact us today to schedule a consultation to see if you may be a good candidate for a dental bridge!
How long do dental bridges last?
With regular dental checkups and good oral hygiene, your dental bridge can last anywhere from 10-15 years. To keep your dental bridge strong and stable, take good care of the surrounding teeth. Brush twice a day, floss daily, and use an antiseptic mouthwash for good oral health.
State-of-the-art customized dental bridges can refresh your smile and restore function impaired by tooth loss.
