Missing teeth can leave gaps in your smile, affecting the appearance and function. When you lose a tooth, there are options to replace it with a fixed prosthetic. Dental bridges are one of the cosmetic dentistry options we offer at Majestic Smile Studio to replace lost teeth for improved smile function and appearance. If you need a tooth replaced, come see us at our dental center in Yorba Linda, CA.
Lost teeth can affect your life in many ways. A hole in your smile can be embarrassing, impacting your confidence. If you are smiling less due to a missing tooth, it can change how others see you. Plus, a missing tooth can allow the other teeth to shift into the open space. If you want to protect your smile and improve your appearance, consider replacing lost teeth with a dental bridge or other dental restoration.
Dental bridges offer a fixed option for replacing a tooth. Unlike partial dentures that can fall out when you talk, laugh or eat, dental bridges are attached to your other teeth. Bridges can replace one or more teeth and anchor to teeth or dental implants, providing a fixed tooth restoration that stays in place.
Replace Missing Teeth
A dental bridge uses a prosthetic tooth called a pontic to replace the missing tooth. It is attached to dental crowns that are fitted over the adjacent teeth to secure the pontic in place. To create a dental bridge, molds are made of the adjacent teeth for the crowns and a mold is made for the pontic. A dental lab creates the bridge and once it is completed, the crowns are bonded to the surrounding teeth, securing the pontic into the smile gap.
Dental bridges are a good option for those who do not want a removable denture to replace teeth. We also offer dental implants for tooth replacement if you want a stronger, lasting restoration.
