One of the most common cosmetic dentistry problems faced by people is the existence of gaps caused by one or more missing teeth. To close these gaps and restore a beautiful smile once more, the Dentists at Avery Ranch Dental in Austin, Texas use the highest quality dental bridges.
Dental bridges are, in effect, a pair of crowns that are used to join with one or more false teeth to create a normal and natural looking smile. These bridges are supported by anchoring teeth on either side of the gap, using either the natural teeth or dental implants. The false teeth, called pontics, are then permanently joined to the anchors.
Dental bridges carry many benefits in cosmetic dentistry. The most obvious, of course, is that they restore a beautiful and natural smile. Done properly by a dentist with the skill of Dr. Lowery and her staff, nobody will even know that the pontics are not your real, natural teeth. They are sturdy and permanent, allowing you to eat and speak normally. They maintain the natural shape of your face and prevent your remaining teeth from becoming misaligned by shifting out of position due to the missing teeth.
There are several types of bridges that can be used. These include the traditional bridge, which works via two crowns on the anchor teeth with a pontic bonded in the middle. These are the most common and typical form of a bridge. The second variety is the cantilever bridge, which replaces a single tooth when there is only one remaining tooth to act as an anchor. The final type is resin-bonded bridges, which are plastic replacement teeth and gums that are bonded to your existing teeth using a metal framework.
You should consult with your dentist to learn which type of bridge is best for you. Regardless of the final solution, your dental bridge will be built from an impression of your existing teeth and adjusted until you are completely satisfied with the outcome. The doctors at Avery Ranch Dental consider restorative and cosmetic dentistry to be an art as much as a science, and will not be satisfied until you are.
