Westend Dental offers beautiful dental bridges that can fill the holes in your smile to give you a confident, stunning smile that will benefit your appearance and oral health.
Missing teeth are more than just a cosmetic issue. Although they can definitely affect your self-esteem and confidence, there are other reasons to consider replacement options like dental bridges. Once one or more teeth are missing, your existing teeth lose their support and can shift into the open spaces in your mouth. Missing front teeth can affect your speech and losing back teeth can affect what foods you can eat. Keep your teeth in place and fill the holes in your bite with a permanent, fixed dental bridge.
Is a Dental Bridge Right for You?
Dental bridges use your existing teeth as support for artificial teeth called pontics. This means there must be teeth next to the missing spaces that can be used to attach the pontics. Most commonly this involves putting dental crowns on the teeth on either side of a missing tooth or teeth.The crowns are used to attach the pontics that fill the gap. Once in place, the dental bridge looks natural and is functional. However, not everyone is a good candidate for a dental bridge; a consultation and exam are needed to determine whether this is a viable option to repair and restore your smile.
