Consider a Dental Bridge to fix a large gap in your smile

A big gap in your smile isn’t much of a self-confidence booster and can certainly impact the way you speak and eat. Many patients with large gaps in their teeth are embarrassed to smile or even show their teeth at all. In other words, missing teeth can really affect a patient’s lifestyle in a negative way. Luckily, there are excellent tooth replacement options available at Noble Oaks Dentistry, one of the most popular being a dental bridge.

Dr. Jerry James has many years of experience with tooth replacement procedures, including dental bridges. He is an expert at assessing needs and creating personalized treatment plans to fit any patient’s lifestyle and budget.

What is a Dental Bridge?

When a patient is missing teeth, for whatever reason, a dental bridge is a practical and cost-effective way to “bridge” the gap in order to restore look and function. A dental bridge is an appliance that usually has a crown on either side and one or more prosthetic teeth in the middle. It is fabricated in a dental laboratory using special porcelain, composite resin, metal, or a combination of materials and is designed to be durable and strong. Once the bridge is fabricated, it is placed by anchoring it to the healthy teeth on either side of the gap it is filling.

What to Expect

Because dental bridge placement requires a fair amount of preparation, it does take more than one appointment to complete the procedure. However, the results are always worth it. A high-quality dental bridge can last 10 years or more with proper care, making it one of the most economical tooth replacement options available.
