A gap in your smile due to a missing tooth can impact the appearance and function of your smile. If you have a missing tooth or teeth that are visible, a dental bridge is one of the options to improve the look and function of your smile. Our cosmetic and restorative dentist at Restore Dental, Dr. Chiu, offers beautiful dental bridges that can replace missing teeth and restore your complete smile.
Dental bridges use your existing teeth as anchors to support prosthetic teeth to fill in gaps in your smile created by missing teeth. While there are different designs and types of dental bridges, the most common uses the adjacent teeth on either side of a missing tooth gap to support the bridge. To attach the bridgework and prosthetic teeth to the existing teeth, dental crowns are added to the teeth. This creates a new row of teeth that look healthy and natural to fill the gap.
Fixed Bridges for Missing Teeth
At Restore Dental, we utilize advanced dental technology to create beautiful dental bridges to improve smile appearance and function for those with missing teeth. Our office has cutting-edge imaging devices, like the iTero 5D imaging system, that can create 3D digital impressions of the teeth to make restorative and cosmetic dental appliances like dental bridges. This technology allows us to create exact dental crowns and prosthetic teeth that will fit perfectly in the patient’s mouth with their other teeth. There is no need to create a physical mold or impression. We can simply scan the teeth and create a 3D image to send to the dental lab to create the dental bridge.
If you have missing teeth and want to improve the health and beauty of your smile, a dental bridge is one of the options available to replace missing teeth. To learn more, contact us at Restore Dental in Highlands Ranch to schedule a consultation with our cosmetic dentist.
