When you have lost a tooth, don’t worry. You don’t have to hide your smile, instead our team can secure a dental bridge to fill the gap and offer a lifelike appearance too! Our team of expert cosmetic dental professionals in Dallas, TX, offer dental bridges that look natural and restore function and health to your smile.

The Factors Behind Your Missing Tooth

Teeth can be lost due to factors like cavities, infections, injuries, or in most cases, the advanced stage of gum disease known as periodontitis. Regardless of the factors, the gap left behind can cause embarrassment and also upset the alignment of your teeth, as surrounding teeth may drift. These changes could mean a greater risk of cavities and gum disease, as well as TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding). Missing teeth could also upset how you eat and speak too. But we can help protect and preserve your smile with a dental prosthetic, one designed to address between one and three missing teeth in a row.

Tooth Replacement

The dental bridge is a prosthetic that can address minor tooth loss to prevent major complications down the road, and also offer a lifelike appearance. The prosthetic contains new teeth, which are known as pontics, with crowns attached to each end. The prosthetic is made from metal-free materials like ceramic. The same material is very strong too, so it can handle daily bite forces and pressures, and provide a dependable chewing surface. On average, a traditional bridge can stay in place for 10 to 15 years, and one secured with dental implants could last longer.

Creating and Securing Your New Teeth  

To begin, our team will numb the teeth on each side of the gap so we can remove structure to make room for the crown portions of the bridge. We take detailed images and measurements to design and fabricate a custom prosthetic. When your new teeth are ready, we attach the crown portions to these prepared teeth, securing your new ones in place for years to come. The bridge is easy to brush and floss, and can stay bright too. For some, we may insert one to two dental implants to attach a crown, providing a treatment option that can last for decades. If you have any questions, then contact our team today.
