Your smile’s appearance can affect your self-confidence and the way you live your life. When teeth are missing, your smile undergoes significant changes. Missing teeth can make chewing difficult, speech issues, and may even cause mouth pain. As your remaining teeth work to compensate for the loss, gaps and spaces form that only make the situation worse. If your are looking for a solution to address your missing teeth, we at Brevard Smiles can help with a personalized porcelain bridge.
What is a Porcelain Bridge?
A fixed bridge is a dental prosthetic that is used in order to replace missing teeth. It is designed for patients who still have remaining natural teeth.A porcelain bridge, custom designed by Dr. LoSasso, will keep your smile aligned and your bite functional. This is a personalized treatment option tailored to address your concerns and teeth condition for increased function and daily comfort.
How Does it Work?
Bridges are anchored to existing teeth or crowns on either side of the missing tooth. This allows for an artificial tooth known as a pontic to fill in the remaining gap. This allows for the gap to be “bridged,” for improved function and overall well-being. This type of solution is semi-permanent, meaning they can only be affixed or removed by Dr. LoSasso and are a long-term, restorative solution to your damaged smile. You can experience improved ability to chew, speak, and minimize mouth pain with this revolutionary treatment option.
Why Choose a Porcelain Bridge?
There are many benefits that a porcelain bridge can provide you over other options. These can include:
- A permanent structure that will not be easily moved
- Eliminate the mess of adhesives that dentures require
- Bridges are able to be brushed, making them easily kept clean
- Bridges can also improve facial structure for increased self-confidence
Who is a Candidate?
This is an effective solution for patients who are missing teeth. If you are missing multiple teeth, but still have surrounding natural teeth, you could also qualify as a candidate. There needs to be natural teeth present in order to accurately secure your porcelain bridge.
