If you’re sick of hiding your smile because of missing teeth, then it might be time to restore your teeth. You want to feel good and look good, and a dental bridge may be just the thing to give you the complete and beautiful smile that you’ll want to show off.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, a bridge may be the right option for you. In some cases of missing teeth, implants may not be the most desirable option. Dental bridges can improve the function an appearance of a missing tooth. Your dentist will help you determine whether or not a bridge is the best option for restoring your smile.
At Chicago Veneers, we’re devoted to giving you a beautiful smile that you’ll want to show the world!
Types of Bridges:
- Fixed Bridge: A fixed bridge is a bridge that takes advantage of the support provided by the teeth on either side of your missing tooth. During an initial visit, your dentist at Chicago Veneers will prepare the surrounding teeth by removing some enamel and preparing the teeth for crowns. Once your custom-made bridge is completed, your dentist will cement it in place. As this is not a surgical procedure, it is a less invasive procedure than an implant-supported bridge.
- Implant-Supported Bridge: An implant-supported bridge is a good option if you are missing more than one tooth. During this surgical procedure, your dentist will place metal posts into your jawbone. After this is healed, your dentist will cement the bridge on top of the implants. Implants do not require support from the surrounding teeth, meaning that the surrounding teeth do not need to have any enamel removed.
At Chicago Veneers, your dentist will work closely with you to determine the best type of bridge for you. We understands how uncomfortable having a missing tooth can be, and it is our primary goal to develop a personalized plan to replace your missing tooth and ensure that you receive the high-quality dental care that you deserve.
