If you feel self-conscious and afraid to smile because of gaps left behind by missing teeth, you’ve probably been considering your replacement options. At Croasdaile Dental Arts, we offer dental bridges in Durham as a form of family dentistry to patients who are exploring the possibilities of tooth replacement. Dental bridges are an effective way to close the gaps of missing teeth, restoring the aesthetic appeal and functionality of a smile.
A dental bridge is a prosthetic tooth, or several adjoining teeth, that is suspended across the space left behind by the missing tooth. A bridge is held into place by two crowns bonded to each tooth on either side of the gap.
Dental bridges are great for anyone who is not a candidate for dental implants, or are looking for the most cost-effective solution for tooth replacement. When dental implants aren’t an option, replacing teeth with a bridge can be a great benefit in the following ways:
- Revitalizes smile appearance and looks natural
- Improves ability to eat, chew and speak
- Corrects bite
- Guards remaining teeth against periodontal disease, tooth decay, and bone loss
- Prevents remaining teeth from malocclusion (improper bite)
- Provides strength to facial muscles
Our dental bridges in Durham are designed of high-quality materials, and are custom-crafted to meet each individual patient’s needs in functionality and appearance. A bridge will look and feel natural, virtually going unnoticed by you or those around you. With the skilled placement of a dental bridge, and good oral hygiene habits, a dental bridge is a long-term solution for missing teeth that looks great.
While dental implants are the ideal method for tooth replacement, there are times when they just aren’t a possibility. For these patients, we provide dental bridges that look natural and fit comfortably. If you are currently considering your tooth replacement options, contact Croasdaile Dental Arts to set up your consultation with our experts in Durham family dentistry and cosmetic dentistry.
