Does having a missing tooth leave you embarrassed to smile? Lost teeth can make you feel self-conscious. They can also lead to bite problems, bone loss, gum disease, and make eating and speaking difficult or painful. A bridge is a facet of Bothell dental care that not only restores your smile’s beautiful appearance but also returns it to full comfort and function.
Bridges Provide a Natural Looking Solution for Missing Teeth
A bridge consists of a customized false tooth (or teeth) permanently placed between two natural teeth and held in place by porcelain crowns. While dental implants are typically the ideal tooth-replacement solution, not all patients are candidates. Chances are you are a suitable candidate for a dental bridge if you are missing between one and three consecutive natural teeth, and your gums, jawbone, and remaining natural teeth are strong and healthy.
Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, which is why we design bridges to be as natural looking as possible. One of our biggest joys is seeing happy, confident smiles brightening the faces of patients who once had missing teeth.
