Dental bridges are effective and suitable for people who are suffering from missing teeth and thereby preventing the teeth from shifting. With a lost tooth, eating and speaking get affected and difficult. A lot of people even lose their confidence to smile and therefore avoid talking with people. Opting for a dental bridge and crown process would not only help in restoring the smile you had as well as improve the overall look but also prevent any kind of speech alteration. However, look being not the only concern; you will no longer face any issue with the chewing process as it prevents your other teeth from taking the extra stress.
In the dental bridging process, a crown is used to connect artificial teeth on each side in order to fill up the gap between the missing teeth. Therefore the crown covers and supports both the teeth at each end with a fake tooth in between known as the pontic. Depending on the procedure you require, our dentist at Bayou City Smiles will decide on the type of dental bridgework that you might need.
