Looking for a Permanent Solution to Missing Teeth? Discover Dental Bridges at White Plains Family Dental Arts
Are you tired of feeling self-conscious about gaps in your smile? A dental bridge might just be the solution you’ve been looking for! At White Plains Family Dental Arts, we offer high-quality dental bridges that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a fixed, permanent structure that replaces one or more missing teeth. The bridge is anchored in place by the teeth on either side of the gap, which are filed down to accommodate the dental cement required to hold it in place. Once in place, the bridge blends seamlessly with the surrounding teeth, giving you a natural-looking, flawless smile.
What are the Benefits of a Dental Bridge?
Aside from the cosmetic benefits, dental bridges offer a range of other benefits, including:
- Improved appearance of the tooth that’s been lost and the surrounding teeth
- Ability to eat and chew all kinds of food without any issues
- Permanent, fixed structure that can last for decades with proper care
- Improved facial and jawbone support
- Easy care, much like natural teeth
What are the Downsides of a Dental Bridge?
While dental bridges are a great option for many people, there are a few downsides to consider, including:
- Sacrificing the appearance of healthy teeth on either side of the gap
- Extra cleaning required to reach parts around the gum
- Possibility of plaque or tartar buildup in hard-to-reach places
- Monitoring for bone shrinkage over time
What if My Dental Bridge Falls Out?
While it’s unlikely that your dental bridge will fall out, it can happen in cases of trauma or if you grind your teeth. If this happens, do not attempt to reattach the bridge yourself. Instead, call your dentist at once for advice on how to proceed.
