If you are missing a tooth or have to have a tooth removed, you can still maintain the wholeness of your smile with dental bridges. Bridges can fill the space between the teeth and match the look of your natural teeth. Family Dental Group offers dental bridges and other services to men and women living in Laguna Hills.
WHAT IS A DENTAL BRIDGE?
A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, and bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite. Bridges are made to look and function just like your other teeth so you can feel confident in your smile.
Your bridge can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. At Family Dental Group, we recommend porcelain bridges for their durability and likeness to natural teeth. This starts by taking impressions of your teeth to ensure that your bridge fits properly. These bridges are then carefully designed to fit and look exactly like your other teeth, and are secured by being bonded to surrounding teeth.
HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY DENTAL BRIDGE?
The success of any bridge depends on its foundation — the other teeth, gums, or bone to which it is attached. Therefore, it’s very important to keep your existing teeth, gums, and jaw healthy and strong. Luckily, bridges can be cared for just as you would take care of any other tooth. Regular brushing and flossing is all that is necessary for the proper care of your dental bridge. When properly cared for, bridges can last years.
