Did you know that more than 120 million Americans have at least one missing tooth? Missing teeth can be an embarrassing matter and impacts our self-esteem. At Feliciana Dental, we want you to put that aside. We’ve seen countless patients with missing teeth. We have never judged any of them and we never will. What we do is offer solutions for missing teeth. As part of our cosmetic dentistry services, we offer custom dental bridges.
A tooth bridge can replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth in some instances. In its simplest form, dental bridges are prosthetic teeth. The healthy natural teeth on each side of the missing tooth cavity serve as support for the dental bridge. In most cases, dental bridges are more affordable than other cosmetic dentistry options such as dental implants. From a functional perspective, a tooth bridge also operates as natural teeth would.
Dental crowns are used when securing teeth bridges. The adjacent natural teeth are fitted with dental crowns to offer the appropriate support. If there is only one gap from one missing tooth, a bridge with three teeth will be used. There will be two crowns and one prosthetic tooth in the middle.
A dental bridge procedure can be completed relatively quickly and the process is non-invasive. Your Feliciana Dental staff is dedicated to making every procedure and treatment as easy for you as possible.
