Losing teeth can make certain parts of your life inconvenient and uncomfortable. If you have lost teeth, whether one or several, you know the toll it can take on things like eating and speaking. It can even change some of how your look. Most people don’t think about this, but teeth give shape to the cheeks. Missing teeth can cause cheeks to have a collapsed look.
Fortunately, there are many dental restorative treatments that can replace your lost teeth and help you regain your function and give you a gleaming smile again. One of the most popular is dental bridges. A bridge is a dental prosthetic made from ceramic and other materials shaped to replace the teeth you’ve lost. The teeth on either side are also shaped to make a foundation that the bridge will bond to.
Every bridge is unique to the patient’s circumstances. When you come into our office, Dr. Michael J. Conway will take a cast of the area of missing teeth and the surrounding parts. Then the casting will be sent to a lab where the crown will be custom made by a dental technician. The bridge will then be installed on your next visit.
