When do you recommend a dental bridge?
Tooth loss can cause a number of problems and complicate normal activities like eating and speaking, not to mention the negative impact it can have on your self-esteem. You might find yourself hiding your smile when you laugh or holding back a genuine smile.
While dental implants are typically considered the best long-term solution to missing teeth, they are not a solution for everyone. We may recommend a dental bridge in our Southpark, NC dental office for patients who want a non-surgical alternative to dental implants or who have medical limitations that prevent surgery.
A dental bridge fills the gap in your smile and keeps teeth from shifting, which preserves your bite. Dental bridges look natural, blend in with your smile, and can give you your confidence back. Dental bridges require two special crowns to hold an artificial tooth in place. They are not removable, so you don't have to worry about taking your bridge out at night or losing it. While dental bridges do require some extra attention to maintain, our team at Gentry Dental have seen the life-changing results that a complete smile can provide.
