Do you want a fuller smile? If you have one or more missing teeth and want a more balanced smile, dental bridges may be the right restorative option for you. Dental bridges can be a secure and long-lasting solution that helps restore missing teeth.
Problems with Missing Teeth
But why should missing teeth be replaced? If the gaps left by missing teeth are not filled, several problems may arise, such as:
- Shifting Teeth
- Misaligned Bite
- Facial Sagging
- Tooth Decay
- Gum Disease
- Speech Issues
Replacing missing teeth not only improves the aesthetics of your smile but can also benefit your long-term oral health. Learn more about treatment with dental bridges below.
Restorative Treatment with Dental Bridges
The Stewart Dental Group offers dental bridges to patients in their Charlotte, NC office. Dental bridges can be removable or secured with dental implants. Secured dental bridges provide more stability and last longer than removable dental bridges. Before treatment, Dr. Melissa or Randall Stewart will perform an examination of the teeth and gums. They will work with you to create a comprehensive, personalized plan for the placement of the dental bridge.
If there are any natural teeth adjacent to tooth gaps, they can be shaped to ensure that they can properly support the bridge. Dental impressions will be made of teeth so your dental bridge is a custom-fit. Dental bridges usually consist of a metal framework that is covered by porcelain to improve the aesthetics of the patient’s smile. When complete, Dr. Melissa or Randall Stewart will ensure that the dental bridge fits properly before it is attached with adhesive cement.
Benefits of Dental Bridges
Dental bridges offer multiple benefits to patients. This restoration can:
- Help support any remaining tooth structure
- Restore the ability to bite and chew evenly
- Prevent teeth from shifting
- Maintain a patient’s face shape
