Porcelain bridges are a functional solution for gaps in your smile, offering aesthetic appeal and no discomfort. Your Tooth Doc dentist will put crowns on the teeth surrounding the gap and fuse a prosthetic tooth between them. In this way, this lifelike porcelain device literally “builds a bridge” between the teeth surrounding the gap. This will not only leave you with a great looking smile, but also help prevent serious problems in your future.
Q: What are my options to replace a missing tooth?
A: By replacing missing teeth either with a bridge or implant, you will alleviate the problems associated with missing a tooth and will restore your smile to its beautiful, full appearance. A bridge is one solution for replacing a tooth. By using neighboring teeth as the supportive structure, your dentist at The Tooth Doc will place a porcelain restoration into the vacant space, restoring the functionality and look of your smile. A dental implant is also an excellent solution. Dental implants involve the placement of a titanium post directly into the jawbone. Once the post has bonded to the bone, it can act as a new, solid support for a natural-looking, porcelain restoration. Implants can replace a single tooth, or an entire set of teeth, offering more function and permanence than traditional dentures.
Although going to the dentist usually causes me some anxiety, Dr. Matz and Lindsey, the hygienist, made me feel comfortable. Dr. Matz is thorough yet gentle, and answered all my questions and Lindsey went out of her way to make sure I was at ease. The front desk personnel were friendly and accommodating. I might actually keep regularly scheduled appointments from now on!
