If you’ve lost teeth from an accident, injury, gum disease, or another factor, you don’t need to live with an incomplete smile. We can recreate your beautiful smile using a dental bridge in Park City. A bridge not only fills the gap, but also prevents the shifting of your remaining natural teeth to avoid unnecessary dental complications in the future. It can also correct your bite, improve your chewing power, and give your face support for a youthful appearance. We can help you invest in your quality of life, confidence, and oral health with a smile you’ll be proud to show off.
What is a Dental Bridge?
Closing the gap between your teeth is important for more than just aesthetic purposes. Without adequate support, your remaining teeth will drift toward the space, leading to avoidable complications, like additional tooth loss.
A bridge is an effective method to treat one or more consecutive missing teeth. Your dentist in Park City will take an impression of your mouth to craft restorations matching the appearance of your real teeth. They’ll blend in seamlessly for natural-looking results; however, they’ll also be durable to function like they are your own teeth.
Types of Dental Bridges
You have more options than ever to revamp your smile. After an initial consultation to examine your mouth and learn more about your preferences, we’ll explain which treatment best meets your needs, such as:
Traditional Dental Bridge
A carefully crafted bridge replaces the portions of your teeth above the gum line. It’s held in place by bonding dental crowns to the adjacent teeth, so it isn’t removable. This is a quick and convenient option to rebuild your smile; however, you’ll need to permanently alter healthy teeth. With the proper care, a bridge can last 8 to 10 years before needing to be replaced.
As an alternative to a traditional bridge, you can support your new teeth with dental implants. 1-2 posts are inserted into the jawbone to mimic the roots to enjoy unmatched support. The posts will keep your jawbone strong to preserve your remaining natural teeth. With your bone fused to the dental implants, they can last for decades with the right care, and you won’t even need to alter healthy teeth.
The Benefits of Getting a Dental Bridge
You know firsthand the effects tooth loss can have on your self-esteem, daily life, and dental health. They can all change significantly from losing even a single tooth. If you’ve lost one or more teeth in a row, you can enjoy the benefits of a dental bridge, including:
- Natural-looking results to restore confidence.
- Maintain a balanced diet with improved oral functions.
- Look younger by providing facial tissues with support.
- Preserve your oral health to lower long-term dental expenses.
- High-quality, durable materials.
