A Dental Bridge Can Fill In The Gaps And Give You A New Smile
Plano Dentists Dr. Peter Barnett and Dr. Trevor Shewski help metroplex patients replace missing teeth.
Let’s face the facts! Missing teeth cause us a lot problems. You can’t chew your food, you have bone loss or you have trouble speaking.
All of these things cause us to be frustrated and looking for solutions.
While dental implants are the best solution and the most permanent one for replaceing missing teeth, some of our patients opt for the dental bridge.
If you are missing one or more teeth, we can help you by placing a dental bridge. It consist of an artificial tooth, or multiple teeth, bonded on each side to a porcelain crown that can last seven to ten years or more.
Why would a dental bridge be necessary?
Dental bridges fill in gaps between teeth, drastically improving the aesthetics of your smile – as well as the function of your bite. When one or more of your teeth are missing, other teeth in your mouth will begin to change position. This can lead to various issues including jaw joint pain or discomfort (TMJ Disorder or TMD), and diminished tooth structure and function (the way your teeth look, their ability to chew food).
How Is It Placed?
Having a dental bridge placed is a two step process. Our team will prepare your teeth for the new restoration to replace your missing tooth or teeth, and then digitally scan your mouth to send the information to the laboratory to fabricate your bridge. Scanning will provide the best possible information to the laboratory for the most accurate fit. . You will leave the office with a temporary bridge in place while your permanent bridge is being created. In about two weeks we will have you come back for a quick visit to place the permanent bridge.
