Are you missing one or more teeth? Since losing the tooth, have you noticed a decline in your ability to speak, eat, or chew? Do you ever feel embarrassed to smile or laugh because of the missing tooth? If so, a bridge might be right for you! A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge is composed of two dental crowns and one or more artificial teeth. Dr. Sam Amirani, our skilled dentist, will place the two dental crowns on the teeth adjacent to the gap in order to support and anchor the artificial replacement teeth. A custom dental bridge can improve your smile by:
- Improving your ability to chew, eat, and speak correctly
- Restoring lost facial volume
- Alleviating stress on the bite
- Preventing other teeth from shifting in the mouth
- Enhancing the appearance of your smile
Dental bridges in Wichita, Kansas are custom made to perfectly fit your unique smile. Because dental bridges are “fixed” dental restorations, they can only be removed by your dentist. This helps to ensure that the dental bridge is secure and comfortable, and you do not need to worry about special cleaning. Be certain, however, to brush and floss your teeth every day! Dental bridges can be created from tooth-colored materials, such as porcelain, to ensure that the bridge matches the aesthetics of your smile. Dental bridges are normally placed in just two comfortable visits to our dental office. If you are missing one or more teeth and you would like to learn more about dental bridges and our other tooth replacement options, please feel free to contact us soon.
