Fitting Dental Bridges in Crowley
Permanent Solutions for Missing Teeth
Losing teeth for any reason can make it harder for you to speak and make chewing uncomfortable. Additionally, the loss of teeth can affect your confidence in your smile and appearance. If you have lost a tooth or multiple teeth and are in pain, you may want to consider dental bridges.
If you are in need of a dental bridge, call us at (817) 631-2388 to schedule an appointment.
For years, dentists have used bridges to replace missing teeth, especially in cases where there is not a need for dentures. At Stone Oak Family Dental, our Crowley dentists use dental bridges to help alleviate the pain, discomfort, and other inconveniences associated with losing teeth. We have years of experience treating teeth which have fallen out or been removed for a variety of reasons.
Why Dental Bridges Are Important
In addition to difficulty chewing and embarrassment over the appearance of missing teeth, losing teeth can cause your other teeth to become crooked over time. It is highly recommended that you seek treatment sooner than later to prevent your other teeth from shifting and causing further damage.
Dental bridges can be used for the following purposes, including:
- Preventing your other teeth from shifting
- Helping to evenly distribute your bite
- Restoring your ability to chew
- Making speaking easier
- Restoring the appearance of your smile
How Dental Bridges Work
Dental bridges are similar to dental implants, except that they are held in place by the surrounding teeth. Essentially, the bridge fills in the missing space and uses the surrounding teeth as if they were anchors. Dental bridges can be made up of several different materials, but we typically recommend porcelain for a natural look. In addition to fitting in with the color of your teeth, porcelain is stain-resistant and extremely durable.
