Missing teeth can affect your looks as well as your health. Gaps created by lost teeth can cause the other teeth to rotate or shift out of position, leading to bad bites. They could also cause gum disease, bone loss, and TMJ disorders. At Dental Crown in an Hour clinic in Naples and Fort Myers, we provide affordable, high-quality dental bridges to fix this problem.
Dental bridge work is recommended for people who are missing one or more teeth. A bridge fills the space between missing teeth and is anchored to the implants or natural teeth at both ends of the space. The anchor teeth are also known as abutments. Bridges are made using a variety of materials such as ceramic, porcelain etc. When you visit our clinic for a consultation, we will suggest you the best material for making your custom bridge depending upon the aesthetic considerations, cost and the location and function of the missing teeth.
Prior to the installation of a dental bridge, the tooth (teeth) must be reduced in size to allow a proper fit. Once the teeth have been prepared, an impression is taken and the desired shade of the bridge is determined depending on the color of your other natural teeth. The impression is sent to a dental lab to make your custom bridge. While the custom bridge is being prepared, a temporary restoration is placed over the teeth. Once it is ready, the temporary one is removed and the permanent bridge is carefully cemented into place.
If cared for properly, the high quality dental bridges offered at Dental Crown in an Hour in Naples and Fort Myers can last you a lifetime. Practice good oral hygiene with daily brushing and flossing and semi-annual dental office visits. Also, avoid chewing on hard foods to prevent damage to your newly placed bridge.
