Albertville and Guntersville, Alabama
Replacing your missing teeth is important, not only for your mouth but your overall health as well. Missing teeth can lead to decreased chewing ability, which in turn could result in a poor diet. Some patients even hide their smile or avoid social gatherings due to their incomplete smile. If this is you, Wall Street Dentistry offers a simple solution that can give you back your smile.
What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth by essentially bridging the gap from a missing tooth. The bridge attaches to your teeth that are on either side of the space and will look like individual teeth. A dental bridge can also attach to dental implants. A dental bridge is custom-made and is permanent. You will not have to worry about loose fitting denture prosthesis.
To begin, we take impressions of your mouth and bite. These impressions are sent to our trusted dental lab that handcrafts your dental bridge. The teeth that the bridge will attach to are shaped appropriately, to make room for the new bridge. You will wear a temporary bridge while your permanent one is being made. Then, you will return to our office for the dentist to permanently bond the bridge in place. Once complete, your smile will look, feel, and function naturally.
Benefits of a bridge include:
- Restored chewing abilities
- Properly aligned bite
- Aesthetically pleasing and natural looking
- Cost effective
- Convenient – does not have to be removed to be cleaned
- Permanent fit – does not require adjustments
