Are you tired of your dentures slipping out? Ill-fitting dentures are not only uncomfortable but can also be embarrassing. The last thing anyone wants to experience is their dentures falling out when speaking or laughing. Additionally, since our gum tissues will continue to change as we age, a denture’s fit will change over time. Regular readjustments are necessary. Smiles By The Sea is happy to offer dental bridges to give our patients a more stable and attractive solution for replacing missing teeth.
A dental bridge is a dental restoration that is made up of one or more replacement teeth. The dental restoration is anchored in place by your remaining natural teeth. As a result, a tiny amount of your anchoring teeth's enamel will need to be removed to ensure that the dental bridge is an optimal fit. Once a dental bridge is firmly attached, it provides attractive long lasting results. It’s not uncommon for a dental bridge to last for a decade or longer with proper care.
A dental bridge is made of beautiful porcelain material which provides attractive, natural looking results for your smile. Porcelain is popular because the exact shade of the bridge can be chosen to match your smile. The material is also tough and stain-resistant, which helps to keep your teeth looking whiter for longer.
A dental bridge can be placed in two appointments. After your anchoring teeth are reduced in size, the dentist will make impressions of them and choose the appropriate shade for your dental bridge. The dental bridge is made in a lab which uses your personal data to create your custom-made dental restoration.
