Replacing your teeth can feel like an intimidating process for some individuals, so at Mint Dental Loft, we do everything possible to ensure you achieve the smile you imagine for yourself. Dr. Tran Han can often do this for her patients with our quality dental bridges in Altadena, California. To learn more about the benefits of dental bridges and if they could be right for you, you may call our team at 626.639.8618 and arrange a consultation with our dentist.
Dental bridges are recommended to replace missing teeth. They may be recommended to replace a single tooth or to replace several teeth in a row. Bridges are non-removable restorations, and consist of one or more prosthetic teeth which are attached to dental crowns. These crowns are bonded to the teeth on either side of the gap to anchor the bridge in place and provide a stable and functional solution for your smile.
Bridges literally “bridge” the space left by your missing teeth, restoring your ability to speak, eat and chew normally as well as giving you back a beautiful smile. Other benefits of dental bridges include:
- Alleviating excess stress on your bite
- Helping maintain the positions of your natural teeth
- Improving and supporting the shape and volume of your face
- Improving the appearance of your smile
Plan on having two appointments with our dentist when you receive a bridge. During the first appointment your teeth will be prepared to receive the bridge and an impression will be taken. When you return for your second appointment our dentist will place the bridge and check that it fits properly before bonding it into place.
