Fill in Teeth Gaps and Return the Confidence in Your Smiles
When patients lose a tooth or a few teeth, the most common cosmetic dental treatment offered is a removable denture. A partial removable denture provides unilateral or bilateral coverage and replacement for your lost tooth or teeth. However, since dentures are not fixed comfort and function is not that reliable.
Porcelain dental bridges are a good option when a patient has gaps between teeth. Bridges are fixed and comfortable for the patient which makes it a better treatment for missing teeth.
Dental Bridges La Mesa
Dental crowns of bridges are supported by remaining teeth. Similar to dental crowns, the process for a dental bridge starts by reducing the surface of the teeth to be able to support the bridgework. An impression is taken for a cast or mould to be fabricated and then sent to the dental laboratory. The finished dental bridge from the lab will then be installed on the patient’s tooth by permanent cement.
Call us today to learn more how dental bridges can be the best treatment option for your missing teeth and gaps.
Porcelain is the most common material used for the fabrication of crowns and bridges. Porcelain is a tooth-colored material and it can be matched to the shade of the remaining teeth, but there are also other materials utilized in the dental laboratory. Ceramic crowns (which are highly aesthetic but less durable compared to porcelain) or metal crowns (either stainless steel or gold, which are least superior in terms of providing aesthetics but definitely more reliable, where longevity is concerned) are also good choices for materials; to find out what kind of restoration is best for your need, you will need to visit contact Smiles of La Mesa on Univeristy Ave and book an appointment, today.
