Your Anchorage, Alaska dental team at Health Centered Dentistry is sensitive to the needs of our patients, especially those with tooth loss. Missing teeth can be a source of anxiety and embarrassment. If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth and would like a natural-looking tooth replacement to get your smile back to its beautiful, healthy condition, a dental bridge by the skilled doctors at Health Centered Dentistry could be an excellent solution for you.
Dental bridges are fixed and do not require removal for cleaning. A dental bridge may be a good solution for you if:
- You are missing a tooth or teeth
- Teeth are moving or rotating on either side of a gap, causing discomfort
- You desire to chew normally again
- You would like a more stable alternative to a denture
- You want your restoration to look and function like your natural teeth
If you think a dental bridge might be a good option for you, the doctors will take the time to make sure they understand your personal goals and expectations. The process of placing a dental bridge is nothing to be nervous about. Your doctor will take impressions of the area to be restored, and then create a prosthetic piece that fits perfectly in the open space. He will bond both ends of the bridge to the adjacent teeth, making sure the bridge is stable and will not move when you eat.
If you meet the requirements for CEREC same-day dentistry, Health Centered Dentistry can replace a missing tooth or teeth in a single visit!
Benefits of a porcelain bridge
Like all tooth restorations, there are both health and cosmetic benefits. It is important that the adjoining teeth will no longer be free to rotate or move, preserving your bite. The bridge prevents ‘sunken face’ and best of all, you will able to eat all of your favorite foods without difficulty. You will also regain a beautiful, confident smile. Your dental bridge is flawlessly matched to your natural teeth, so no one needs to know you weren’t born with them.
The doctors at Health Centered Dentistry want their Anchorage patients to be the happiest and healthiest they can be. If you are missing teeth, a porcelain bridge could be the way to get you back to smiling with confidence.
