If you’ve been embarrassed about your smile due to cracked, chipped, or missing teeth, we are here to improve your confidence! At Chesterfield Dentistry, Dr. Akinwande and the rest of our friendly team are highly experienced in cosmetic dentistry treatments that can restore the look and function of your smile. Today, we want to talk about dental bridges—a treatment that has helped many of our patients look and feel their best!
What Is a Dental Bridge?
The aptly-named dental bridge bridges the gap due to missing teeth using a framework and prosthetic tooth. No longer will a gap between your teeth garner unwanted attention! A dental bridge provides a natural-looking solution that’ll have you grinning in no time.
How Do You Fit a Dental Bridge?
Like every procedure we undertake at Chesterfield Dentistry, Dr. Akinwande comes up with an individualized treatment plan designed to meet your unique dental needs. We fit dental bridges over a series of visits that involve shaping adjacent teeth, creating a custom prosthetic, and placing crowns on neighboring teeth. In some cases, Dr. Akinwande may place a dental implant to help anchor the bridge.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Dental Bridge?
If you have a unsightly gap in your smile from missing teeth that affects the normal functioning of your mouth, you may be a candidate for a dental bridge! Schedule a consultation at our expert dental practice as soon as possible. A gap in your smile can cause neighboring teeth to shift into a misaligned bite. If left untreated, alignment issues can lead to the development of cavities and gum disease.
