Are you missing one or more permanent teeth? Are there gaps and spaces in your smile? To restore your smile, Dr. Deore and Dr. Jones may recommend a dental bridge in Coppell, Texas. A dental bridge is an appliance that closes the gaps in your smile by replacing missing teeth. A dental bridge consists of dental crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap, which are called abutment teeth, with a replacement tooth in between. Our dentists may place a dental bridge to:
- Restore your smile
- Restore your ability to chew and speak properly
- Maintain your face shape
- Properly distribute your bite
- Prevent your natural teeth from drifting
To place a dental bridge, our dentists will first remove a small amount of tooth enamel from the abutment teeth. This will allow room for the dental bridge in your smile. Digital impressions of the teeth are made so that your dental bridge can be custom made. When the dental bridge is complete, our dentists will place it in your mouth to check the fit. Any necessary changes are made. Once the optimal fit has been reached, our dentists will permanently cement your dental bridge in place.
