Are you suffering from missing teeth that affect your smile? Do you find it hard to enjoy food due to your missing teeth? At Rosas Family Dentistry in Houston, TX, we understand the need for great teeth. If you need a dental bridge to restore your smile to its natural beauty, give us a call to explore your options.
A dental bridge is a fake tooth that fills in any spaces you may have between your teeth. Sometimes made with metal and porcelain, this bridge can be either a permanent solution or a removable one.
Our dentist will get your existing teeth ready so that the bridge fits perfectly. We’ll make an impression of your mouth and have a bridge created that is tailor-made just for you.
Those with missing or broken teeth are perfect candidates for dental bridges. Perhaps you lost your teeth due to decay and need to fill in any gaps left behind. Those who struggle with eating food may also find dental bridges to be the best course of action.
They play a big role in allowing your teeth to bite down properly, thus improving your ability to chew. Some patients have trouble speaking clearly because of missing teeth. Dental bridges can resolve this issue by replacing what’s missing.
Others’ mouths might become misshapen over time due to the separation of teeth. Dental bridges work to prevent this from occurring, restoring your mouth to its natural shape. Interestingly, this affects the overall shape of your head, as well.
Over the course of a couple of months, our dentist will get your mouth ready to accept the new bridge. This requires slightly reshaping the existing teeth around the gap. We will then get a mold of your mouth and send off for a custom-made dental bridge. Once it arrives, we’ll have you come in to have the bridge cemented into place.
If you’re ready to improve your smile, Rosas Family Dentistry in Houston, TX is ready to help. Give us a call today, and we will be happy to schedule an appointment.
