The smile can do many things; it can help you talk, eat, smile, laugh, and create a positive first impression. When you have missing teeth, all of these things can be difficult. This is why it’s recommended to replace your missing teeth as soon as you get the chance. It’s also recommended so you avoid further dental complications. Luckily, there are many tooth-replacement options that can fill the gap in your smile and give you the function and appearance you’re looking for. One of those options is a dental bridge.
A dental bridge in West Jordan, UT, is a handy appliance that consists of a natural-looking replacement tooth and two beautiful dental crowns. Fortunately, the use of this bridge does not require surgery because it anchors on the neighboring teeth and fills the gap in your smile.
The treatment typically takes two appointments to place and it involves your dentist numbing the surrounding teeth before removing a small section of the enamel. This makes room for the dental crowns that anchor the bridge in place. Then, your dentist will make an impression of the smile and will send it to a dental lab. The professional lab technicians will create a bridge that is perfect for you. When it’s ready, you will come back to our office and get it cemented into place.
A dental bridge can help you, your smile, and your oral health in more ways than you might realize. It can reestablish your smile, help you chew and speak, maintain the shape of your face, add vigor to your bite, keep remaining natural teeth from drifting out of place, enhance the beauty of your smile, and boost your oral health.
