Find out why you may want to consider getting a dental bridge to replace missing teeth.

After losing a tooth you might find yourself feeling embarrassed to smile because of the visible gap between your teeth. You may also find that you have trouble eating certain foods properly. Luckily, our Spring, TX, family dentist Dr. Michael Morris has a simple solution that can give you back a complete smile in just a few weeks. Learn more about dental bridges and the advantages of this tooth replacement options.

How does a dental bridge work?

A dental bridge is a fixed dental appliance that is designed to replace one or two teeth in a row to fill the gap left over by missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two dental crowns (which are cemented into place over natural teeth surrounding the gap) and a false tooth in the middle.

What are the benefits of a dental bridge?

One of the major benefits to getting a dental bridge from our Spring, TX, dentist is that we can prevent complications that often arise with untreated tooth loss. It’s important to turn to your dentist as soon as possible after tooth loss to find out what your options are. Other advantages to getting a dental bridge include,

Aesthetically pleasing

Each crown and false tooth is specially made to match your smile; therefore, even false teeth are made to look just like real teeth. While you will know which teeth aren’t your own no one else will be able to tell. False teeth and crowns are made from porcelain, which are designed to resemble the look and color of tooth enamel.

Fixed in place

Another benefit to having dental bridges is that we use your natural teeth to anchor and hold the bridge in place. This ensures that your false tooth or teeth stay in place and do not move around. Once a bridge is placed you can rest assured that you will be able to enjoy all of your favorite foods without worrying about your teeth moving around.

Quick treatment

Another benefit of getting bridges is that this oral appliance can usually be placed in just two visits. During your consultation we will map out your treatment plan and determine your candidacy for bridges. From there we will prep the teeth for the crown and take impressions of your mouth. A dental lab will then get to work creating your new bridge and once it’s ready (usually within a couple of weeks) we can permanently place your new bridge. It’s a fast and simple process.
