How can dental bridges help my smile cosmetically?
If you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth, your dentist at Bright Smiles Family Dentistry might recommend a bridge to fill in the space left behind. The bridge, which will attach to healthy teeth or to two crowns on either side of the area where the teeth are missing, will look very much like your natural teeth.
You will no longer have spaces visible in your mouth, so you will not have to feel self-conscious when speaking or laughing. Any trouble you might have had chewing, because of gaps in your teeth, will also be a thing of the past with dental bridges.
It’s important to fill the gap left by missing teeth. If you don’t, the rest of the teeth in your mouth will more than likely start to shift. The movement of your healthy teeth will have a negative impact on your bite, and this can lead to even more tooth loss.
Protect your dental health by taking care of damaged or missing teeth with a restoration such as a dental bridge. Contact Bright Smiles Family Dentistry to talk about how dental bridges at our Marble Falls dental practice can protect your remaining teeth and restore your function.
