Missing teeth can impact your life in many ways. Depending on the teeth, gaps in your smile can affect speech, chewing and the beauty of your smile. Dental bridges are an option to fill in gaps caused by missing teeth, improving the appearance and function of your smile. At Laguna West Dental Care, we can create a customized dental bridge to replace missing teeth and restore a complete set of teeth.
A dental bridge is a cosmetic dental treatment that uses your natural teeth to support a prosthetic tooth or teeth. It is the most common method used for a missing tooth or teeth between two natural teeth. Crowns are placed on the natural teeth that are bonded to the metal support bars for the prosthetic teeth. Most bridges replace one or two teeth, improving the appearance of the teeth and smile while restoring function. The dental crowns and prosthetics are customized to align with your existing teeth and match in color. The result is a beautiful, new smile without gaps that lasts for many years.
Is a Dental Bridge Right for You?
At Laguna West Dental Care, we offer more than one option for replacing missing teeth. Our restorative dentistry treatments include dental implants, dentures, All-on-4 and dental bridges. Each option has advantages and disadvantages. A dental bridge is a good option for someone who is only missing one or two teeth and wants a cosmetic solution. Dental implants are also an option, but not everyone is a candidate for dental implants.
