No one likes losing their natural teeth. Even with advanced restorations, nothing quite feels like your natural teeth. Unfortunately, tooth loss is prevalent in America because of various factors, such as cavities, gum disease, etc.
The good news is that patients missing teeth have multiple teeth replacement options. One common solution is dental bridges — an effective option to restore your teeth if you have healthy, remaining teeth. Bearley Dental in Charlottesville, Virginia, offers high-quality bridges to replace missing teeth anywhere in your mouth, including the front teeth.
A dental bridge consists of false teeth (pontics) attached to dental crowns secured on existing teeth. Even when you don’t have healthy teeth besides the gap, your bridge can be supported by one healthy tooth or an implant.
So, can a bridge replace teeth in the front? Absolutely! Replacing the front teeth is tricky because we need to maintain the natural look in your smile zone. Dental bridges are up to the task of replacing teeth that are visible when smiling. Since dental bridges are made from life-looking porcelain material, they not only close the gap but integrate seamlessly with the rest of your smile to maintain a natural appearance.
Dental bridges can last for up to 15 years with proper maintenance. Besides durability, dental bridges yield the benefits below when used to replace your front teeth.
