Your Copperas Cove dentist, Dr. Grantham, is sensitive to the needs of his patients, especially those with tooth loss. Missing teeth can be a source of insecurity 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, well-functioning condition, a dental bridge by Dr. Grantham may be the solution for you.
Dental bridges are fixed and do not require removal for cleaning. A dental bridge could be 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 solution for you, Dr. Grantham will take the time to make sure he understands your personal goals and expectations. The process of placing a dental bridge is nothing to be nervous about. Dr. Grantham 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 either end 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 E4D same day services, Dr. Grantham 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 of porcelain bridges. It is important that the adjoining teeth will no longer be free to rotate or move, preserving your bite. You will not suffer from ‘sunken face’ and you will be able to eat all of your favorite foods without hassle. 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.
