A missing tooth can change your smile. Whether you experienced an injury or lost a tooth to disease, a gap in your smile can impact your confidence. Restoring a complete smile by filling in the gap left by a missing tooth can improve your appearance. Dental bridges are a beautiful way to replace missing teeth and enhance your smile’s appearance. At Carrington Square Dental, our cosmetic dentist can complete a dental bridge to replace missing teeth at our office in Waxhaw, NC.
A dental bridge uses your existing teeth to anchor a prosthetic tooth to fill in the gap left by your missing tooth or teeth. The anchor teeth adjacent to the missing tooth or teeth are fitted for dental crowns that are connected to the pontics, or prosthetic teeth. A row of 3-4 connected teeth, the dental crowns and the pontics, are fitted over the adjacent teeth and fill the gap in your smile. Once bonded in place, dental bridges look natural and improve the function of your teeth for chewing and speech.
Replace Missing Teeth
Losing one or more teeth can impact your mouth function, speech and the appearance of your smile. With the advancement in restorative and cosmetic dentistry, you do not need to live with a gap in your smile. Our dentists at Carrington Square Dental offer solutions for replacing missing teeth, including dentures, dental implants and dental bridges. We can discuss the different options and help you decide which is right for you.
Dental bridges can be a good option for those who are not a candidate for dental implants due to oral health or budget. They offer a fixed solution, unlike partial dentures that can slip or fall out when speaking or eating. Plus, a dental bridge also improves the appearance of adjacent teeth by covering them with beautiful crowns. For many people looking to replace one or two missing teeth, a dental bridge is a perfect solution for improving their smile.
