Do you suffer from one or more missing teeth? A dental bridge may be the perfect solution for you! Bridges utilize two dental crowns and a replacement tooth for a natural, healthy-looking smile. At Dentists in Lincoln Green, Dr. LePhuoc and Dr. Truong may suggest dental bridges as part of your personalized treatment plan to:
- Replace missing teeth
- Improve your ability to bite, chew, and speak
- Restore facial shape and volume
- Prevent the remaining natural teeth from abnormally shifting
There are many types of dental bridges in Houston, Texas, and our caring dental team will help to determine which type of dental bridge will work best for you. It will largely depend on which teeth are missing. Traditional bridges, however, are the most common and popular; two dental crowns are placed on the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth to anchor what is known as a pontic, or artificial tooth. Similar to the process for receiving a dental crown, all the pieces are custom made and manufactured in approximately two weeks. Once fitted and adjusted to perfectly fit your smile, the dental bridge is cemented into place. For more information about dental bridges, we encourage you to call or visit our dental office today.
