If you have lost some teeth, one or several, you know how inconvenient it could be in some parts of your life. It can be uncomfortable and interfere with eating, so you may not be able to enjoy your food as well as you used to. It can have an impact on your speech, making it more difficult and even change some ways of how you look. Most people don’t know that teeth give shape to the cheeks, so missing teeth can give an appearance of collapsing.
Luckily, there are many treatments that can be restorative that can replace your teeth that have been lost and help you enjoy your food and have a gleaming smile again. One of the most popular of these treatments is dental bridges.
The bridge is a prosthetic dental piece made from ceramic and other materials shaped to replace the teeth that have been lost. The teeth on either side are also shaped to make a foundation that the bridge is bonded to.
Each bridge is custom-made for the patient’s circumstances and unique problems. When you come into our office to get the bridge, Dr. Jeffery Carver will take a casting of the missing teeth and the surrounding areas that will hold the bridge in place. The casting will then be sent to a dental lab where your crown is made custom by a dental technician. Following this, the bridge can be installed on your next visit.
